About Us

Promoting full access for students with disabilities.

At Mississippi State, it is our goal to provide students with disabilities the support and accommodations they deserve.

Our Mission

The Disability Resource Center (DRC) assists in determining the classroom accommodations that are most appropriate for students with disabilities based on documentation of their disability. DRC encourages communication with instructors regarding accommodations. DRC will provide eligible students with notification letters regarding their classroom and testing accommodations to give to their professors. Examples of classroom and testing accommodations are varied, but may include: Adapted testing arrangements, extended time on tests, testing in a distraction-free environment, assistance with alternative formats of textbooks, and advocacy with the MSU Housing Department for help with living arrangements.
