Thinking About Attending Humboldt?

Cal Poly Humboldt is an integral campus that is part of the California State University system (CSU).  Humboldt adheres to CSU policy and guidance.  California State University Policy for the Provision of Accommodations and Support Services to Students with Disabilities (AA-2014-08) provides an overview of CSU system policy and guidance.

Humboldt's Campus Disability Resource Center (CDRC) provides services in support of the educational experience of students with disabilities.  The interactive process begins when a student discloses a disability and/or condition and requests accommodation. An accommodation may be interim (situation-specific, time limited) or may extend throughout the student's tenure at Humboldt.  Each student's need is evaluated on a case-by-case basis.  Accommodation(s) are applied each term on a course-by-course basis.  Students benefit from ongoing case management contact with their Accessibility Advisor throughout their tenure at Humboldt.

Prospective or Transfer students are welcome to engage with Humboldt CDRC.  

Information Session

If a prospective or transfer student is seeking information, or if they are unsure if they wish to proceed with a formal request for accommodations, they may schedule a meeting with an Accessibility Advisor to review ADA and Section 504 as both apply to post-secondary education as well as their current accommodation needs.  This meeting is called an "Information Session.”  This meeting can be held in person or via Zoom and usually lasts 30 minutes.  Humboldt welcomes support persons (partner, spouse, parent, friend) to attend this meeting with the prospective or transfer student.
