Registration

As long as you are continuously enrolled you may continue to access your approved classroom accommodations by presenting your accommodation letter each new semester. If your disability needs change or if a unique classroom experience calls for an adjustment to existing accommodations, you should contact the Disability Services Office. If approved, you'll be given a new accommodation letter that will reflect those changes. If you withdraw and later return or re-enroll after graduating, you will need to contact Disability Services in order to be issued a new accommodation letter.  
To qualify for accommodations at the University, you must attend a confidential intake session to discuss your needs. This interactive meeting may take place in person, via WebEx, or over the phone. Please call 606-783-5188 or email the Disability Services Coordinator Evangeline Day to schedule your appointment. If possible, please provide supportive documentation concerning your disability by the time of your appointment (documentation requirements). Additionally:
  • Because many accommodations require preparation time it is best to contact the Office of Disability Services 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.

 

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. 

 

Expectations

  • 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.
