Important Alternative Testing Service Information

Please schedule an appointment with Michelle to schedule your exams for the 2016 Summer sessions. We have seen a huge increase in students requesting alternative testing accommodations and have limited space to provide such service.  As a result, it is imperative that you get in as quickly as possible to schedule your exam dates.  Even if you are unsure whether you plan to utilize alternative testing accommodations, it is our recommendation that you go forward and schedule your exams with the DRC.  We can always remove your name from the schedule if you opt to take your exams in class.  Please note that scheduling exams (in particular final exams) at the last minute will no longer be an option.  We simply cannot accommodate students' requests for alternative testing without proper notification.


DRC Peer Mentor Project

The DRC Peer Mentor Project matches incoming students with disabilities (mentees) and upperclassmen and graduate students with disabilities (mentors). Mentors use their knowledge of campus life and resources, as well as their personal experiences to provide invaluable advice and guidance to mentees.

If you are interested in being a mentor or a mentee, please visit the following webpage for more information.

Become an Eye to Eye Student Coordinator

Eye to Eye is a national mentoring program that pairs college students with learning disabilities and/or ADHD with similarly labeled middle school students.

Each week next year, UNR students will work with middle school students on art projects that are designed to help the younger students learn about themselves and embrace their learning differences. If you are interested in becoming a Student Coordinator or have any questions, please contact Micah Goldfus at mgoldfus@eyetoeyenational.org

All art is good art; you do not need to have backgrounds in art to get involved!

College Scholarship Guide

Education costs are at an all-time high, and landing into the right scholarship could be the difference between graduating debt-free or paying off loans for years and years. The great news is that anyone can just be eligible for some type of scholarship. In fact, there are numbers of scholarships in place to help students with disabilities realize that further education is indeed possible.
