Roles and responsibilities

Learn about your responsibilities in implementing your access plan.

If you are registered with the Disability Resource Centre, and have an Access Plan in place to support you in your studies, you should be aware of your responsibilities.

You should

  • work proactively with the Disability Resource Centre (DRC) to keep us informed of changes to your health condition (or carer status)
  • use your Access Plan as a starting point for discussions with your unit chairs. We strongly encourage you to introduce yourself to your unit chair at the start of the trimester to discuss your needs.
  • always contact your unit chair and/or tutor in the first instance if you need any educational adjustments listed in your Access Plan, such as needing an extension on an assignment or extra time for online or in-class tests.
  • always follow the Unit Guide procedure when requesting extensions, prior to the deadline for submission of the assignment, and advise the unit chair of how long an extension you will need.
  • remind your unit chair you have an Access Plan when you talk with them and don’t assume that your unit chair is always fully aware of all the details in your academic adjustments.
  • request a review of your Access Plan if your circumstances change. It is your responsibility to make an appointment to discuss your Plan.
  • contact the DRC if you have any questions related to your access plan.
  • abide by the University’s Student Code of Conduct.

When your unit chair receives your Access Plan, they will identify and implement any adjustments relevant to your unit.

If you have any concerns or questions, we encourage you to contact us.
