Disability Resource Center - Mission Valley

The Disability Resource Center (DRC) is the point of contact for PLNU undergraduate students and Mission Valley campus students to provide reasonable accommodations so otherwise qualified students with disabilities may, as independently as possible, meet the demands of university life.

The DRC provides academic and non-academic accommodations to students with official diagnoses (i.e., learning, physical, dietary, psychological, etc.).
