Whether you're on campus or fully online, students with a disability can schedule a Welcome Appointment to get connected with the DRC. Appointments are held through Zoom, by phone, or in person with your DRC Access Consultant. You'll discuss the services we provide, the benefits of receiving accommodations, the resources available to you, and methods to stay on track with your academic plan. Supporting disability documentation requirements are discussed and any questions about the process can be answered.

Real students, real achievements

FIU produces REAL Triumphs graduates that meet and surpass expectations and demonstrate the competencies of teamwork, collaboration, and leadership – but none stand out like our graduates with disabilities. Not only do they meet the requisite standards of the university, but they do this in an environment often designed without their learning and physical needs in mind. As their partners in success, the DRC collaborates to ensure opportunities for full university participation. Donate today!
