Documentation Review Committee
Each student's documentation is presented to the Documentation Review Committee (DRC) at Francis Marion. The DRC meets approximately once a month and is responsible for determining whether a student’s documentation is sufficient for establishing a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). If a student’s initial documentation is incomplete or inadequate to determine the extent of the disability, the DRC will identify what is missing. The cost of obtaining additional documentation is borne by the student. A letter of approval or denial will be sent within three weeks of a student’s documentation review. If approved, a student should make an appointment with the Director of Counseling and Testing to set up accommodations for the academic year. Accommodations will not occur until this meeting has taken place. If eligibility is denied, a student may appeal to the ADA Compliance Coordinator at Francis Marion (Dr. Charlene Wages, Vice-President for Administration, 843-661-1140).
