Note taking and testing accommodations are two of the most common used by students registered with the SDRC. To fully meet those accommodations, faculty needs to work with the SDRC closely.

A core component of universal design for instruction is making information accessible to all students equally. No matter if that is through text books, class handouts, required readings, tests, or classroom lectures, students must have the ability to engage and learn, whatever the format.

While the SDRC has an alternative text unit that assists students with document conversion, the unit is not equipped or staffed to support all academic departments. Accommodations can range anywhere from recording class lectures to having materials available in Braille.

Below are links to pages fully explaining faculty responsibilities regarding these accommodations, such as how to arrange for note takers in class and what to do when notified that a student is testing at the SDRC on–site testing center. Also below are links to pages that give more information about how to prepare materials for class, as well as the Florida State “Tegrity” lecture capturing service:

The Dean of Student Department supports an inclusive academic environment through education, empowerment, crisis management, and advocacy of students in collaboration with campus and community partners.

We welcome students and family members to connect with the Dean of Students Department if you are experiencing a crisis or just need someone to talk through a problem or experience you are having at Florida State University.
