COVID-19 Information

Disability Resource Center

Montclair State University is committed to the full inclusion of students with disabilities in all curricular and co-curricular activities as mandated by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The Disability Resource Center (DRC) will assist you in receiving the accommodations and services necessary to equalize access. The DRC provides assistance to students with physical, sensory, learning, psychological, neurological, and chronic medical disabilities.‌

Accessing the DRC during the Fall 2020 Semester

Welcome Red Hawks! We hope you had a safe, enjoyable summer and are ready for the new academic year. Though things may look different and accessing our office has changed, we are still here to support you!

The DRC staff returned to campus as of Monday, August 17; however, in accordance with health and safety precautions due to COVID-19, meetings with students will occur virtually. Please contact the Main office: 973-655-5431/drc@montclair.edu or your DRC Counselor directly for further assistance.

Requesting Fall 2020 Accommodations

Returning/Continuing students registered with the DRC: Please request your Accommodation Notice for the fall 2020 semester via email to: drc@montclair.edu. All Accommodation Notices will be sent to the student’s University email account as a PDF document. The student must email the Notice to all of your fall 2020 professors.

New students to the DRC: Please see Academic Accommodations Procedure for further information regarding the intake process.

Submitting Disability Documentation

If you need to submit disability documentation or forms to the DRC, please send via email to: drc@montclair.edu. Email is preferred and is the most effective and safe method.

Please access the Faculty/Staff Resources and Student Resources links for additional information such as recommendations for accommodations in remote instruction and ways to remain active, social, and safe.
