Disability Resource Centre

Supporting your learning experience

The Disability Resource Centre (DRC) provides a wide range of services and educational accommodations for students with a documented disability. DRC faculty and staff are available on both campuses to arrange services and supports such as classroom and exam accommodations, accessibility assistance, and to act as a resource for students, faculty and staff.

Providing equitable access to Camosun students

The DRC is guided by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the BC Human Rights Code. These important pieces of legislation have been put in place to support you.

Services

If you have documented needs that require accommodation in the classroom, the DRC can help you transition into Camosun and support you during your time at the college. To achieve the goal of equitable access, the DRC has put in place a wide range of services and supports that are individualized to meet your needs within your specific academic program.

"Don't look at it like you're taking advantage of a system... You're putting yourself on a level playing field with other students."
