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.

Documentation

Students Reviewing Documentation

What type of documentation do I need to register for services with the SDC?

Documentation should include:                
  • Student’s name, ID number, Declaration disability is present, and Signature 
  • Name, Title, License Number, Address, and Signature of qualifying, diagnosing clinician
  • Statement by the clinician that a disability is present
  • Explanation and/or basis for diagnosis (tests, clinical interview, observations, history)
  • Date disability first diagnosed, date clinician first treated student, most recent visit, expected duration of disability
  • Detailed description of current functional limitations
  • Statement of the extent to which limitations are mitigated by treatment and side effects of treatment if any

Please keep in mind, documentation should be comprehensive, written within a reasonable timeframe relative to the disability, and signed by your non-familial, treating, qualifying professional. Incomplete information may slow or delay the accommodation approval process.
