Frequently Asked Questions for Registered Students
How can I request my accommodations each term?
The DRC Services Portal link in the Student Hub is where you can request all your accommodations, including professor notification letters, notetaking requests, and exam room reserves. If you have any trouble accessing the portal, you can contact your specialist for assistance.
How do I access the DRC Services page on the Student Hub?
Will I need to resubmit documentation each semester?
No, once you officially register with the DRC and complete the Student Service Agreement you do not need to resubmit documentation. Should you wish to apply for additional accommodations, you can always submit updated or additional information at that time.
How can I set up a meeting with my DRC Specialist?
There are three ways to schedule an appointment with your specialist: you can call and make an appointment by phone, you can email them to set up a meeting, or you can make an appointment directly through your myNortheastern portal.
How do I submit exam room request forms?
Students wishing to reserve space in the DRC for an exam should submit a Room Reserve Request Form at least one week before the exam (or two weeks before a final) to ensure space. Requests submitted after that time will be accepted based on availability. To access the form, go to the DRC Services page on your Student Hub.
I have been approved for academic accommodations. How do I tell my professors?
Once you have completed the registration process, you can request a Professor Notification Letter containing your approved accommodations from the DRC. These requests can be made at any point in the term through your Student Hub. All letters will be emailed to your professors within 1-3 business days of submission. This process needs to be initiated by you, the student each term.
What is the availability of DRC staff for an appointment?
Our staff is always available to schedule an appointment or meet with walk-ins during our regular business hours. All professional staff members can answer general questions about services and accommodations, but your disability specialist is your primary contact at the DRC. You can schedule an appointment with your specialist anytime via email and you can find their contact information here.
Does the DRC provide tutoring?
How do I submit notetaker requests?
Students who are already approved for the notetaking accommodation and wish to request a notetaker for any or all of their classes can do so via the request form on the DRC Services page of the Student Hub any time after they have registered for classes.
I have a professor for a second time, do I need to give them another PNL?
Yes, you will need to provide a Professor Notification Letter to each instructor for every class, even if you have had the professor in previous semesters.
Why should I contact my specialist for 1-on-1 support?
Once registered with the DRC, it is common for students to meet with their specialists 3-5 times during the semester. You may want to meet with your specialist if you’ve experienced difficulties and you need help getting back on track academically. You could also meet to discuss your accommodations, study strategies, organizational tips, or to get general information about the DRC.
Where can I get more information about the DRC?
The DRC maintains a virtual classroom on Canvas for all registered DRC students where they can review how to access accommodations, keep updated on news from the DRC, learn helpful new information about every aspect of campus life, and find links to other university resources. We also encourage all students to follow us on Twitter and on Instagram: @NortheasternDRC.
