Student information

Accommodation eligibility

If you have recently been receiving services in the K-12 system; the information requested would most likely be contained in the Psycho-Educational Evaluation from your most recent Triennial Review. Some of the information may also be contained in an IEP, 504 Plan, or Transition Plan. You will need to request this information separately from your high school transcripts.

If you are or have been recently receiving services from a state rehabilitation agency; much of the requested information will be contained in your most current eligibility evaluation and/or your vocational plan.

For individuals transferring from another college; information related to your disability will not be sent with a transcript request. You will need to request that information separately. Additionally the information that the University of Nevada, Reno Disability Resource Center (DRC) is requesting may or may not have been a part of your previous college's evaluation process. You should check the information against the guidelines.
