Step 1 - Information Session
- The first step for new students to the Disability Resource Centre (DRC) is to attend a DRC Information Session.
- DRC Information Sessions provide an overview of DRC services, college resources, funding options, campus orientation and eligibility information. Students are given a Permanent Disabilities Programs Application (PDPA) form required to document their disability.
- Information sessions are scheduled on Monday at Interurban from 9-10 am and Thursday at Lansdowne from 1-2 pm.
- To register for an Information session call Lansdowne DRC at 250-370-3312 or Interurban DRC at 250-370-4049 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 2 - Intake
- Following the Information Session students schedule an Intake appointment with a DRC Faculty on the campus they are/or will be attending session by calling Lansdowne DRC at 250-370-3312 or Interurban DRC at 250-370-4049 or email email@example.com
- At the Intake appointment you will discuss eligible services and educational accommodations for placement tests, courses and exams to support you in your coursework. Part-time study options, funding options and any other educational issues and concerns will also be discussed.
- Service, equipment and funding requests require time to implement. You may require a visual language interpreter, captionist, textbooks in alternate format, tutor, note taker, academic strategist, specialized funding, technology and equipment.
- Please contact the DRC four months prior to the semester start to ensure service. If your semester start is less than four months away, please contact the DRC as soon as possible.
