Welcome to the Wolfpack!
We are excited you have chosen NC State! NC State’s Disability Resource Office (DRO) is the authorized office on campus to receive disability documentation and determine eligibility for reasonable accommodations on behalf of the University. DRO collaborates with the student and the course instructor or NC State unit providing the resources to arrange reasonable accommodations.
If you have general questions concerning academic accommodations, feel free to contact us; however, the DRO only reviews documentation for students that have accepted their admission into NC State or have registered for an academic course. You may connect with the DRO at anytime; however, we generally review current semester requests before reviewing incoming student requests.

Transitioning From High School
The Disability Resource Office is committed to helping students with disabilities and their parents make a smooth transition from high school to the university. Learn more about understanding the new expectations, roles and responsibilities for students in higher education. First, it is helpful to understand that the laws governing a university education are very different from those governing K-12 and so is the accommodation process. Students with disabilities who received accommodations in high school should be aware that universities do not necessarily provide the same accommodations set forth in their IEP or 504 Plan.
