Parent/Guardian Information


Lists on the Student Accessibility Resource Center (SARC) website are in no way meant to be exhaustive. Although we have done our best to verify any resources listed below, we cannot guarantee the validity of all resources, or the validity of resources provided by other sites. Refer to the student resources page for additional materials. 

 

Email Email List

We would like to encourage SARC students' support systems (i.e. parent/guardian, significant other, community partners) to join an email list. We will send the same reminders we send students throughout the semester. For example, we send reminders to schedule final exams, reminders to request alternative textbook formats, notifications of events on campus or in the community, and much more. To subscribe or unsubscribe, please complete this form.
