Clockwork & Requesting Accommodations

About Clockwork 

Clockwork is a complete scheduling and data management system that the DRC uses for streamlining and simplifying processes for accommodated testing requests for students.

Students can make all accommodation requests — scheduling for appointments and tests/exams.

Instructors can verify quiz and exam information, accommodations and upload testing materials.

Requesting Accommodations

After you register with the DRC and meet with a DRC counselor, you can then request accommodations for your courses through the Clockwork app in MyPortal.

This request will be emailed to your instructors so they know what accommodations you need for their course. This needs to be done every quarter for each course.
