3 things to know about the Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC)

SDRC Mission: SDRC Promotes inclusion by ensuring equal access to all aspects of the Carolina experience for students with disabilities by facilitating the provision of reasonable accommodations, providing modifications and serving as consultants to faculty, staff, and campus partners.


Who Does SDRC Serve?

1. Students who have a documented disability significantly affecting major life functions.

2. Students who have documented temporary injuries.

3. Students with documented disabilities or medical conditions who are seeking relief from the requirements of Greek meal plans.

Note: the SDRC also serves students at USC satellite campuses and graduate students, including those at the Law School and Medical School.

Remember: Although students may have similar diagnoses, their behaviors, needs, and experiences will be unique and will need individualized consideration. Modifications/Accomodations are determined on a case-by-case basis.
