Faculty Portal Instructions

Accessibility Resource Center uses an on-line Service Request Portal to request accommodations. The new system is more secure, saves time and resources, as well as simplifies the process for students and faculty. Please note that students will only have access to those services for which they have been approved by their DSS Advisor.

Currently, the following services are available at the on-line Service Request Portal:

  • Instructor Notification of Accommodations
  • Exam Services
  • Note taker Services

Exam Services:

All requests for exams to be facilitated by ARC must be submitted on-line.
Students will initiate a request for exam services by using the Services Request Portal located on the ARC Website.
