Disability Resource Center

Samuel Merritt University recognizes disability as an aspect of diversity that is integral to society and to the campus community. The Disability Resource Center collaborates with students, faculty, staff, and community members to create usable, equitable, inclusive, and sustainable learning environments through training, partnerships, innovative programs and accommodations.

The role of the Disability Resource Center is to assist the campus community in creating more usable and inclusive environments. When this is accomplished, access for students with disabilities is seamless. When necessary, the DRC works with students and faculty to create accommodations to provide equal access to University services and facilities.

How to Obtain Accommodations
It is the policy and practice of Samuel Merritt University to create inclusive learning environments.  If you know or suspect you have a disability and there are aspects of the campus or your courses that result in barriers to your inclusion or to accurate assessment of your learning—such as time-limited exams, inaccessible web content, or non-captioned videos—please contact the Disability Resource Center for a confidential appointment at disabilitysupportservices@samuelmerritt.edu.

All disabilities must be documented by medical, health, learning disability, or mental health professional. Documentation guidelines and forms are available in the Disability Office.
