The Disability Resource Center (DRC) at Bellevue College fosters transformational change to present disability as a valued part of life. Our students bring strong compensatory skills to the world and our job is to prepare them to compete in society with their peers.
We provide a wide variety of accommodation services for disabled students, and we work to educate the community and foster inclusiveness.
- If you are a new or prospective student, visit the New Students tab for an overview of how to become registered with the DRC and receive accommodations.
- If you are a current student, visit MyDRC to request accommodations and request test appointments or DRC Forms to submit Alternative Media Requests, the Syllabi Review Form, or the Sign Language Interpreter Request Form.
- If you are a faculty member, visit Overview of Resources for Faculty regarding how we can help you facilitate access and success of accommodations for your students and be sure to check out the MyDRC Faculty Portal for your list of students who have requested accommodations for all your classes, easy access to their accommodation lists as well as ability to fill out the online Test Proctoring Form for students with testing accommodations.
- If you are a BC student diagnosed or identifying as autistic or neurodiverse, the Neurodiversity Navigators (formerly Autism Spectrum Navigators or ASN) program has many support options for you, including advocacy.

The Disability Resource Center (DRC) is dedicated to service excellence in the provision of comprehensive and flexible accommodation plans, working with students, instructors, staff, administration and community contacts to ensure the successful academic endeavors and goals of qualified Bellevue College students with disabilities.
The DRC works in innovative ways to provide teaching and learning opportunities to college staff, faculty members and community partners to remove barriers to access and help further the understanding, support and success of the students we serve. We contribute to the disability justice movement, centered in a social justice model of disability, and work to incorporate concepts of universal design into all aspects of the Bellevue College environment.
The DRC helps students develop the critical skills necessary to achieve success, promoting self-advocacy, and seeks to better integrate people with disabilities–through structural, curricular, and attitudinal changes — into the overall pluralistic fabric of the college and community.
