The Office of Student Orientation and Parent/Family Programs works closely with the Disability Resource Center (DRC) to provide accommodations and services to students and families with disabilities while here for Orientation.

If you are deaf or hard of hearing, please list any communication access needs at the time of registration. We can arrange for American Sign Language interpreters, Signed English interpreters, oral interpreters, tactile or close-vision interpreters, CART, or assistive listening devices. If you have a vision disability and need written materials in an alternate format (such as Braille, audio-taped, etc.), please indicate that on your registration form.

Please note: Wheelchairs will not be provided during Orientation. Students and guests needing assistance should make personal arrangements prior to arrival.

IMPORTANT: All accommodations and services provided during Orientation are for Orientation purposes only. To receive ongoing accommodations and services during the semester, you must provide acceptable documentation to the Disability Resource Center (DRC) and register with a DRC specialist for services. You are strongly encouraged to begin the intake and registration process as soon as you are accepted to Northeastern to minimize any delays in services. To begin the intake and registration process or to find out about documentation requirements, visit the DRC website at
