Disability Resource Center (DRC)
Success in life should not be restrained by individual limitations. Cabrini is firmly committed to offering support and appropriate accommodation to qualified students with disabilities.
A person with a disability is someone who has an impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities (e.g., walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, working).
A Student Accessiblity Specialist is available to provide personal academic support, as are classroom accommodations such as extended test-taking time and lecture recordings.
- Disclosure of a disability is voluntary and treated with the utmost confidentiality.
- Eligibility for support services requires a current, relevant, and full evaluation from a qualified professional.
Cabrini is not required to make modifications that it can demonstrate would substantially alter an essential element of the curriculum.
Classroom and program accommodations may include the following:
- the use of a calculator when appropriate
- spell-checker, tape recorder, or note-taker
- alternative formats for print materials
- interpreters, adaptive equipment, or assistive technology
- substitution of specific required courses
