** If you are a new student or a transfer student to Radford University, QUEST is the campus orientation. During this visit to campus is an excellent time to set up a meeting with a Disability Services Specialist.
During your meeting with a Disability Services Specialist is the time to discuss any challenges you face in the classroom or around campus. This meeting will be a collaborative effort between you and the Disability Services Specialist to see that your needs are being met and that reasonable accommodations are implemented.
The Disability Services Specialist may request further documentation at any time to justify a requested accommodation. In the event you do not have the proper documentation, you may be asked for a letter of impact or be referred to local testing centers for additional or updated testing.
Documentation can be submitted to the DRO in a variety of different ways:
1. Hand Deliver it to the Disability Resource Office in Suite 54-69 Tyler Hall
2. Fax it to (540) 831-6525
3. Scan and attach n an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
