Coronavirus Information

As we all navigate the ever-evolving guidance on how to best reduce the spread of COVID-19, we want to reach out to each of you to let you know that the SDC is continuing to operate and is providing services to students. As of March 19, 2020, we are functioning remotely and all SDC staff are telecommuting. We are offering phone and Zoom appointments and you can still submit disability documentation via email at sdc@ucdavis.edu or by fax at 530-752-0161. Unfortunately, we cannot accept documentation delivered in person or by US mail at this time.

We understand that this is an uncertain time and encourage you to reach out to us for support. Please feel free to  contact your Specialist or the front desk at sdc@ucdavis.edu with any questions or concerns you may have. You may also reach us by phone at (530) 752-3184 Monday – Friday from 8:00am-5:00pm. Please leave a voice mail message at this number and we will return your call as soon as possible. 

On March 26th the Student Disability Center (SDC) hosted a faculty forum where we shared general information, answered questions, and connected you with SDC resources ready to assist you in remote learning environments.  Click this link for the video.

The campus directives about remote learning raises some questions. Student Affairs has created and will be updating a page with frequently asked questions for students.

Faculty Questions

Students Riding on a Bike Pathway

You’ve got questions … We’ve got answers …

  • What should I do if I have questions about a student’s Letter of Accommodation?
    • Please contact the SDC Specialist who signed the student’s letter as soon as possible to discuss your questions and concerns.  You can reach your specialist by calling the office at 530-752-3184, Monday through Friday, 8am-noon and 1-5pm.
  • Is disability information confidential?
    • Student disability and accommodation information is confidential. Only those with an educational “need to know” - so that they can provide services - should be made aware of a student’s accommodations.
  • How do students access classroom accommodations?
    • The instructor of record for each course is responsible for providing most classroom accommodations. Common classroom accommodations include Testing Accommodations, Consideration for Absences, permission to Audio Record Lectures, and Note Takers. Other services such as Lab Assistants, Accessible Textbooks, Adaptive Furniture, Captioners are handled through the SDC. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us.
  • Where can I get help to provide accommodations for my classroom lectures, quizzes, exams, labs, and field trips?
    • While instructors are responsible to ensure that students have access to classroom accommodations outlined in the student’s Letter of Accommodation, support is available. Please check with your department and the SDC for assistance.
