[horizontal rule]

ASU is responsible for providing reasonable accommodations to qualified students with disabilities to ensure courses and course materials are readily accessible. Approved accommodations are determined on an individual student and course-by-course basis with priority given to a student's preferred accommodation. Accommodations may include, but are not limited to, alternative testing, alternative formatted materials, Interpreting, CART services, captioning, note-taking, classroom laboratory aides, and/or assistive technology.

Interpreting and CART services through the Disability Resource Center (DRC) are not available for public activities or employment on or off campus.

Public, self-supporting university units (e.g., Grady Gammage Memorial Auditorium) are responsible for providing their own interpreting or CART services. This includes nonacademic credit and/or fee-based programs, lectures, classes, workshops, conferences, and activities.

See the DRC Web site for additional information.
