Accommodation Process

Rio Salado College Disability Resources and Services (DRS) handles each student's request on an individual basis, given a reasonable time frame. Please refer to the chart below when requesting a special service. Although the following time lines are preferred, Rio Salado College DRS strives to provide the services as quickly as possible.

Services and accommodations are available at no cost to qualifying Rio Salado students. To qualify for accommodations you must meet MCCCD eligibility requirements and provide disability documentation.

After you complete your application in DRS Connect and provide the necessary documentation, we will evaluate your request for accommodation and service requests on an individual, case-by-case basis. To help us meet your needs please provide as much of the following as possible:

  • Physical: mobility, dexterity, endurance, etc.
  • Perceptual: sensory experience, vision, hearing
  • Cognitive: attention, distractibility, communication, etc.
  • Behavioral: action and reaction responses
  • Descriptions of treatments, medications, accommodations, auxiliary aids, assistive technology, and services currently in use and their general effectiveness as tools for access
  • Additional accommodations or tools with a description of how you feel they will be helpful.
If we need additional or current documentation it is the responsibility of the student to seek out the relevant professionals and incur any fees related to evaluations.
