Welcome to the Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC) at the Florida State University (FSU). We are in the Dean of Students Department which is a Division of Student Affairs at FSU. On this website, you will find information about the accommodations and services we coordinate for students who have disabilities. I trust the site will give you an understanding of our programs and services.
The Student Disability Resource Center's primary commitment is to assist Florida State University in educating and serving students with disabilities who qualify for admissions and help with the transition to post-secondary education. Our mission is to ensure equal educational opportunities through collaboration and empowerment with students with disabilities. We strive to create an accessible and inclusive environment by minimizing, and where possible, eliminating barriers to equal access. The SDRC promotes a welcoming academic, physical, and social environment for students with disabilities at FSU.
The SDRC staff work directly with students to assess their individual disability-related needs. In addition, the SDRC houses distinct services that have proven most helpful in accommodating a variety of student needs such as the testing accommodations offices for onsite classroom testing, the assistive technology lab and alternative media services, student support groups, interpreting services and transportation provision. Most of all, we are here to listen, and support you in becoming an integral part of this very extraordinary community!
As Director of the Student Disability Resource Center, I am proud of the outstanding services provided at the SDRC. To begin the process of registering for services, feel free to stop by and visit us at 108 Student Services Building or call (850) 644-9566 (Voice); (850) 644-8504 (TDD for the D/deaf) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to meeting and working with you as you progress through your FSU years. This is truly a very important time for your life and future. We feel thrilled to be able to join you in achieving the highest level of success!

FSU Student Football Ticket Distribution FAQ
- How do I get a student ticket?
Eligible students can go to this website and follow the directions to register for a student ticket: www.seminoles.com
- Who is eligible for a student ticket?
Only currently enrolled FSU students who pay the full athletics fee in their fees and tuition for the fall semester are eligible for student tickets.
- What if I am a student but I do not pay the full athletics fee?
Certain categories of students, such as students enrolled at the Panama City campus, Sarasota campus or though Distance Learning, do not pay the full athletics fee and therefore are not eligible for student tickets on a game-by-game basis through this process. However, students that fall into these categories have the option to purchase a discounted student season ticket if they would like to attend games. To take advantage of this offer please visit the following website for more information and purchasing instructions: www.seminoles.com.
