Information for Students

Disability Resource Services (DRS) is the campus department designated by the University to ensure access to University classes, programs, and activities for disabled individuals on the Turlock and Stockton campuses. A goal of DRS is that your student experience is similar, if not identical, to that of your peers. DRS facilitates access by determining reasonable accommodations or by redesigning aspects of a University experience to be inclusive of all participants.

Through innovative consultation and collaboration, DRS leads the campus community in its commitments to recognize disability as a valued aspect of diversity, to embrace access as a matter of social justice, and design more welcoming and inclusive environments.

If you are new to DRS and have not yet received disability accommodations, you need to register with DRS first. DRS has Disability Advisors for students. The Disability Advisor’s role is to assist students with gaining access to university programs and services such as accommodations for academic courses and Housing. The Disability Advisor can recommend off-campus resources such as the California Department of Rehabilitation, Centers for Independent Living, and other agencies and services.
