The Disability Resource Center provides information and support services to Cal Poly students with permanent and temporary disabilities.
Once incoming students have provided current disability verification to the DRC office, they will be scheduled for an individual intake appointment with a DRC Access Specialist. During this appointment, appropriate support services will be discussed and authorized, based on the current functional limitations that may result from the disability. Policies for the provision of support services are available in writing and may be referenced from this site.
Students can now review their VISA (Verified Instructional Services and Accommodations) and make requests for test accommodations and alternative media ONLINE by logging into the Portal via my.calpoly.edu and clicking on the Academics tab. The Disability Services section will display each student's information.
