The Faculty Portal is a means for faculty to review information regarding accommodations for students registered with the Disability Resource Center and in your course. Once logged in, you can:
Please contact the Disability Resource Center if you have any questions.
The Disability Resource Center (DRC) staff hopes the following answers to commonly asked questions will assist faculty and all other teaching staff in accommodating qualified Arizona State University (ASU) students with disabilities.
Is the DRC Open?
The DRC staff will continue to be available remotely. If there is an accessibility concern related to your course, regardless of how the course is being delivered, please contact the Disability Resource Center. They can be reached in a variety of ways including, email, phone, or Zoom conference. As usual, you will be able to call us at 480-965-1234 or email us at DRC@asu.edu. DRC staff are available to assist all of our Students, Faculty, Staff and partners.
What do I need to do?
The first step would be to familiarize/re-familiarize yourself with the students who are in your course and what accommodations they require. The best way to access this information is through the faculty portal. Once you review what accommodations are needed you may find that little needs to be adjusted.
Will I get a new faculty notification since transitioning to online?
You will only receive a faculty notification if a student requests different accommodations or a new student requests accommodations. Any students who have had accommodations in your course prior to the transition to remote course delivery, will continue to receive those same accommodations, although they may be slightly modified to meet the new environment.
How do I know if students with Disabilities are in my course and have requested accommodations?
Faculty have access to the Faculty Portal of DRC Connect. Faculty are able to see the students registered with the DRC for any classes you are teaching that have requested accommodations. If there are no students requesting accommodations, you will not see anything in the portal. If additional faculty (TA or similar) need to be added, please let us know so we can manually add them.
What if I need to add access for another professor or TA?
If additional faculty or TAs need to be added, please let us know so we can manually add them. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the following information:
How do you provide extended time in Canvas?
In order to provide the extended time accommodation for online courses the timing of the online exams and/or quizzes needs to be adjusted. Here are video instructions for Canvas. There are also instructions within this Canvas course:

How do students registered with the DRC take their exams?
The first question to think through is how are you providing your exams to the rest of your class?
If you are using an online platform, then you would ensure students have access to their accommodations through that same platform. We are highly encouraging all faculty to administer their exams remotely to reduce the need for students with disabilities to come into a location. This is recommended as a way of adhering to CDC recommendations and being mindful that many students registered with our office are also more susceptible to illnesses.
If you are requiring students to take their tests in person and you are not able to provide the students accommodations, the DRC will work with you to figure out how to best facilitate the exam to ensure students receive their accommodations.
Can a student still take their exam in the DRC?
If the exam is being administered online, students with disabilities would take their exams using the same platform utilizing their accommodations. The DRC will administer any exams for courses that may still require that they be in person.
I am creating videos, do I need to do something?
If you have students with accommodations such as interpreters, CART, captioning, and/or transcripts, it is imperative that you notify us immediately that you are planning to use videos. Our staff will work with you to ensure your course content is accessible.
Here are some tips for you to consider on your end: Web Accessibility
Why are DRC Staff asking me for my courses’ Zoom information?
DRC staff occasionally need to access courses in order to provide accommodations and ensure accessibility. It is imperative that if a service provider is accessing your course, including attending on zoom, that you allow them full access. Some of the common reasons for this access include sign language Interpreting, CART (communication access realtime translation), and Captioning. If you have questions about this please contact our office as soon as possible.
