Students interested in utilizing the resources of Disability Services (DS) must attend a confidential Intake session with the DS Coordinator. This interactive meeting can take place over the phone if necessary, although an in-person meeting is preferred. Please call 606-783-5188 or e-mail to schedule your appointment. If possible, please provide supportive documentation concerning your disability at the time of your appointment. Note: Our documentation requirements can be found under "Student Resources" on this website's menu.


  • Because many accommodations require preparation time it is best to contact DS well in advance of your need for them, even prior to your arrival on campus if possible.
  • Accommodations are not retroactive, i.e., your rights to them are established when your request for them is approved based on information obtained during your intake and any follow-up sessions.
  • Those accommodations that occur in class will go into effect at the time the professor is notified; for this reason, we recommend presenting a copy of your Accommodation Letter early in the semester.

At the Intake Session:

You will be asked to provide basic information such as your student ID number, contact information, and academic major. Your documentation and relevant history will be reviewed, and our understanding of the current impacts of your disability will be clarified with your input. We will work together to determine the adjustments that are both reasonable and necessary to your particular needs at the University. Your approved accommodations will be summarized in an official Accommodation Letter that will be released directly to you.


  • You will be an active participant in this process.
  • Our Policies and Procedures Agreement will be fully explained and you will be asked to sign it.
  • You will have the chance to ask any questions so that you leave your appointment with a clear plan for using your accommodations.

In Subsequent Semesters 

You may continue to access your approved classroom accommodations as needed by presenting your Accommodation Letter. If your disability needs change or if a unique classroom experience calls for an adjustment to existing accommodations, you should contact DS to discuss. If approved, you'll be given a new Accommodation Letter that will reflect those changes. If you re-enroll after graduating or withdraw and later return, you'll need to contact DS in order to be issued an updated Accommodation Letter.
