To safeguard students receiving disability services, the Disability Resource Center (DRC) will provide telephone consultation (361-593-3024) rather than face-to-face appointments. Remote services will be delivered through email at drc.center@tamuk.edu using AIM (Accessible Information Management), and the HIPAA secure platform called ZOOM.

Testing Services administered at the DRC:   

Due to COVID-19, testing accommodation services will be limited at the Disability Resource Center.  Students receiving the accommodation service of extended time will not be proctored at the DRC.  Exams will be taken remotely with the professor/class.  All exam requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.   

The DRC will be available between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Students who are currently registered with the DRC can contact the office via email for assistance or consultation. 

Students who are interested in newly applying for services with the Disability Resource Center may review the process on the DRC webpage under How to Request Accommodations and contact the DRC via email for additional inquires or clarification of the process.
