Welcome to Disability Resources and Services
Estrella Mountain Community College is committed to providing the best possible academic and social experience for all students, including those with disabilities. Your success is important to us. That's why we strive to ensure the facilities, programs, services, activities and information technology you need are available and easily accessible. We support the rights of students with disabilities and work diligently to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Please explore this site for information on how to request services and other disability related information.
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendment (ADAAA) of 2008, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability and require Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC) and the Maricopa County Community College District to make reasonable accommodations for those otherwise qualified individuals with a disability who request accommodations. A reasonable academic accommodation is a modification or adjustment that allows an individual to gain equal access and have equal opportunity to participate in EMCC's courses, services, activities and use of the facilities. EMCC is not obligated to provide an accommodation that requires a substantial change in the curriculum or alteration of any essential elements or functions of a program.
Important Information about Testing Accommodations:
Exams taken in DRS must be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance. If the exam is not scheduled in advance, there is no guarantee that DRS will have space available for you to take your exam. In this situation, the student will be responsible for rescheduling their exam with the instructor. It is highly recommended that you schedule your exams at the beginning of the semester.
- Exams should be scheduled to be taken at the same time as the regular classroom exams. Exceptions, such as when time accommodations extend into another class period, must be arranged with your instructor or DRS on a case by case basis.
- Unless you have special instructions from your instructor, all exams must be taken in one sitting.
- It is your responsibility to work with your instructor to ensure that your test is sent to DRS for your scheduled time.
