Yes, if you are academically well-prepared as evidenced by
meeting the eligibility requirements for UC Davis. Successful students
at UC Davis also have good time management skills, are willing
to work very hard, and take responsibility for managing their calendars
and personal lives.
Yes. The quarter system at a major university is very challenging
compared to a 15 or 18 week semester system. Because each quarter
is comprised of just ten weeks, you must have strong time management
and study skills to complete your assignments and study for exams.
Tutoring will be available to you to the same extent it is
available to non-disabled students. The SDC provides accommodations
such as sign language interpreters to insure that students with
disabilities have equal access to the tutoring at the Learning
Skills Center. The Learning Skills Center offers workshops
on a variety of study skills, as well as small group tutoring in
some content areas at no charge. Tutoring is not available for
every course. Some academic units maintain lists of tutors whom
you may hire privately.
As a UC Davis student, you can expect to receive the same level
of services and attention as non-disabled students, with the exception
of disability-based accommodations. The "mainstreamed" environment
may be different from what you are accustomed to, particularly
if you are coming from a special education program in high school
or special classes at community college.
A network of services is available to all students on campus,
including those with disabilities. The Learning
Skills Center provides assistance with study skills, and advisers
in the academic departments and colleges assist with course selection.
As an enrolled student you are responsible for being aware of,
and following, all policies, rules and regulations of UC Davis,
including observing deadlines.
Unlike high schools and community colleges, UC Davis does not
offer special or remedial classes for students with disabilities.
It is expected that incoming UC Davis students are academically
prepared to pursue university studies.
The services of the Student Disability
Center are available to students who have a documented disability
that limits a major life activity. Students who have been admitted
to the University are advised to provide the SDC with appropriate
documentation during the summer prior to their arrival on campus
if they will be requesting Fall Quarter accommodations. Contact
the Student Disability Center at (530) 752-3184 (voice) or (530)
752-6833 (TTY) for additional information about the type of documentation
Under state law, individuals are eligible to
receive reasonable accommodations on
the basis of disability at UC Davis if they have a physical or
mental impairment that limits a major life activity.
Students who cannot access the online registration system (SISWeb),
due to a disability, may be provided with direct assistance as
an accommodation. All requests are considered on a case-by-base
