Students with disabilities at Florida State University can find a variety of services within Student Disability Resource Center designed to coordinate academic accommodations, enhance academic success, and ensure access to all phases of university life.
Personnel in the SDRC oversee and coordinate services to ensure academic accessibility to all students with documented disabilities on an individual basis. Academic accommodations are determined based on documentation submitted by the student; these are monitored by disability specialists in the program. The office also provides some assistive technology equipment and services. All services through the main office are free of charge.
