Academic Advising

Academic advising at the University of Louisville promotes a teaching and learning partnership dedicated to student success. It is to your advantage to meet with your academic advisor at least once a semester and to know your advisor well. The advising experience will provide you with the information and skills necessary to make intelligent, informed decisions throughout your college career. Your academic advisor can assist you in connecting with valuable resources on campus. Your academic advisor will guide you and teach you about career choices, degree requirements, university policies and procedures, and how to be a successful student. It is your responsibility to take the lead in developing a relationship with your advisor by communicating with your advisor on a regular basis.

ADA Guidelines for Students with Disabilities

The University of Louisville is committed to equal opportunity for all qualified students and does not discriminate on the basis of disability. Auxiliary aids and academic adjustments are available to students with disabilities who qualify, to afford them an equal opportunity to participate in and benefit from the University's educational, social, and cultural activities, programs and services.

The Disability Resource Center (DRC), Stevenson Hall 119 (tel: 502-852-6938) is responsible for the coordination of disability-related accommodations for qualified applicants for admission and enrolled students with disabilities. Eligibility for services and what accommodations may be appropriate is determined by staff of the Disability Resource Center after review of documentation of disability and an interactive process involving, as appropriate, the student, DRC staff, and/or faculty or other staff. The DRC staff member will inform the student of the decision whether or not a requested accommodation is to be granted. The university is not obligated to provide a student’s specific choice of accommodations, provided that it offers alternate accommodations that are effective in affording the student equal access to the university’s programs, activities and services.

Submitting Documentation of Disability

All students seeking assistance from DRC must disclose the presence of a disability. In most cases, the student will be asked to submit documentation of disability for review by the DRC. Upon receipt and review of the documentation, an intake appointment will be scheduled. Contact the Disability Resource Center for additional information about guidelines for diagnostic criteria.

Intake Appointment

After review of documentation, DRC staff will contact the student for an intake appointment. At this meeting, the student's eligibility for support services and anticipated accommodations will be discussed. Policies and procedures regarding specific support services, such as letters for faculty, exam accommodation, supplemental note-taking service, etc., will be discussed.

Timeliness of requests; requesting Specific Auxiliary Aids and Services

Because sometimes accommodations may be necessary for a student to participate in one course but not in another (and because sometimes necessary accommodations vary depending on the nature of the specific class), it is the responsibility of the student to request such aids and services each semester. Such accommodations should be requested as soon as possible, as the interactive process of reviewing medical documentation, consulting with health care providers as necessary, and determining what accommodations are appropriate—and, if necessary, to obtain any necessary auxiliary aids and support services—may take time. While requests for accommodations are always handled as expeditiously as practicable, belated requests increase the danger that an auxiliary aid or support service may not be obtainable in a timely fashion.

It is recommended that students submit requests for instructor letters, exam accommodations, and supplemental note-taking services no later than two weeks prior to the beginning of each term. Some services (such as interpreter service and taped textbooks) may require more advance notice. Please contact the DRC for additional details on requesting services such as reader service or interpreter service, including any applicable timeliness guidelines. Although DRC staff will make every reasonable effort to accommodate all requests, untimely requests may result in delay of service.

Academic Adjustments

Academic requirements may, as necessary, be modified to ensure that they do not discriminate against qualified applicants or currently enrolled students with disabilities. At the student's request, DRC staff may recommend academic adjustments should they be necessary to afford qualified students with disabilities to participate in and benefit from UofL’s programs, activities and services, and provided that such adjustments do not fundamentally alter the course in question or the student’s program of study. In addition, lowering academic standards (e.g., “grading on a curve” that is not applied to students without disabilities) is not a reasonable modification. Students can ask the appropriate DRC staff member to provide a memo recommending academic adjustments for each class in which the student is enrolled. Because of the diversity of individual needs relating to disabilities and the uniqueness of each class, students must discuss their requests for course modifications or substitutions individually with DRC staff.

Resolution of concerns; formal grievance process

Questions or concerns related to policies and procedures not resolved with individual DRC staff may be directed to the Director of the DRC. Should a student feel the university has denied the student’s rights under the ADA, the student may present a grievance to the ADA Coordinator (502-852-5787, titleix@louisville.edu). A grievance should be filed within 180 days after the complainant becomes aware of the alleged violation. The student should submit a written statement regarding the nature of the complaint, results of any meetings with DRC staff, and requested resolution. All ADA grievances that state a claim of discrimination (that is, if all information available is assumed to be true, would the acts or omissions complained of constitute a violation of the ADA) will be promptly investigated and a decision will generally be rendered within 60 calendar days of the date of receipt. Should a grievance required more than 60 days to resolve, the parties to the complaint will be promptly notified.

Drug-Free Schools and Crime Awareness, Campus Security Information Report 1993, and Communities Act Amendments of 1989

Purpose and Goal
The University of Louisville is committed to protecting the safety, health and wellbeing of all students, faculty, and staff and other individuals in our workplace. We recognize that alcohol abuse and drug use pose a significant threat to our goals. As a recipient of federal grants and contracts, the university gives this notice to students, faculty and staff that it is in compliance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 (Pub. L. 100-690, Title V Subtitle D) and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendment of 1989. Students, faculty and staff are herein notified of the standards of conduct that will be applicable while on university property, business, and/or at university sponsored activities. This policy is incorporated and is a part of the official University of Louisville Policies and Procedures.

This policy recognizes that student, faculty, and staff involvement with alcohol and other drugs can be very disruptive, adversely affect the quality of work or academic performance of student, faculty and staff, pose serious health risks to users and others, and have a negative impact on productivity and morale.

As a condition of employment or enrollment, the university requires that students, faculty and staff adhere to a strict policy regarding the use and possession of drugs and alcohol. The university encourages students, faculty, and staff to voluntarily seek help with drug and alcohol problems.

Prohibited Behavior
Under university regulations, federal law, state law, and, in some instances, local ordinance, students, faculty and staff are prohibited from the unlawful possession, use, dispensation, distribution, or manufacture of illicit drugs on university property, on university business and/or at university sponsored activities. Under this policy, students, faculty and staff are required to abide by state laws concerning alcoholic beverages. Basically, Kentucky laws (KRS 244.085) state that, if one is under the age of 21, it is unlawful to:

  • Possess or consume alcoholic beverages,
  • Misrepresent one’s age for the purpose of purchasing alcoholic beverages, or
  • Use a fake ID in an attempt to purchase alcoholic beverages.

No matter what one’s age, Kentucky law states that it is unlawful to:

  • Procure any alcoholic beverages for anyone under 21 years of age or
  • Drink or be drunk in a public place.

University campuses and buildings are considered as public places for purposes of these laws, except for a facility licensed to serve alcoholic beverages, and except for a facility used as a private residence, unless university regulations state otherwise. Ordinances of the Greater Louisville area basically parallel the state laws.

The specifically defined standards of conduct, the disciplinary procedures, and the appropriate sanctions are detailed in the codes of student conduct and in Personnel Policies and Procedures (PER-5.01), Staff Handbook (Disciplinary Action, page 8.2) and The Redbook.

In addition, it is a violation of state law to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of any substance that may impair one’s driving ability (drugs or alcoholic beverages).

Prescription and over-the-counter drugs are not prohibited when taken in standard dosage and/or according to a physician’s prescription. Any student, faculty, and staff taking prescribed or over-the-counter medications will be responsible for consulting the prescribing physician and/or pharmacist to ascertain whether the medication may interfere with job or academic performance.

The illegal or unauthorized use of prescription drugs is prohibited. It is a violation of our drug-free workplace to intentionally misuse and/or abuse prescription medications. Appropriate disciplinary action will be taken if job or academic performance deterioration and/or other accidents occur.

Consequences For VIolating This Policy
Under university regulation, students who violate this standard of conduct are subject to disciplinary action from a minimum of a warning to a maximum of suspension from the university. Students who reside in university housing are subject to further disciplinary action that may vary from a warning to termination of their housing contract.

Notice of Drug-related Conviction
In compliance with the Federal Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988, any employee shall notify the immediate supervisor if the employee is convicted of a criminal drug offense occurring in the workplace or while on university business within five days of the conviction. The university shall take appropriate sanction and remedies in accordance within its policies. The provisions of this section are applicable to students who are employees of the university. If the employee is under a federal contract or grant, the university shall notify the contracting or granting agency of the conviction and of its actions. This section of this policy is also applicable to students who receive a Pell grant (federal grant).

Health Risks
The scope and impact of health risks from alcohol and drug abuse are both alarming and well documented, ranging from mood altering to life threatening, with consequences that extend beyond the individual to family, organizations and society at large. The university, therefore, conducts regular programs to educate its students, faculty and staff that consumption and use of drugs may alter behavior, distort perception, impair thinking, impede judgment, and lead to physical or psychological dependence.

Alcohol and/or drug abuse may lead to the deterioration of physical health by causing or contributing to various health conditions including but not limited to fatigue, nausea, personal injury, insomnia, pathological organ damage, some forms of cancer, pancreatitis, heart attack, respiratory depression, birth defects, convulsions, coma, and even death. Alcohol and drug abuse may also result in deterioration of mental health by causing or contributing to various conditions such as increased aggression, hallucinations, depression, disorientation, and psychosis.

Alcohol consumption causes a number of marked changes in behavior. Even low doses significantly impair the judgment and coordination required to drive a car safely, increasing the likelihood that the driver will be involved in an accident. Low to moderate doses of alcohol also increases the incidence of a variety of aggressive acts, including spouse and child abuse.

Moderate to high doses of alcohol cause marked impairments in higher mental functions, severely altering a person’s ability to learn and remember information. Very high doses cause respiratory depression and death. If combined with other depressants of the central nervous system, much lower doses of alcohol will produce the effects just described. Repeated use of alcohol can lead to dependence. Sudden cessation of alcohol intake is likely to produce withdrawal symptoms, including severe anxiety, tremors, hallucinations, and convulsions. Alcohol withdrawal can be life threatening. Long-term consumption of large quantities of alcohol, particularly when combined with poor nutrition, can also lead to permanent damage to vital organs such as the brain and the liver.

Mothers who drink alcohol during pregnancy may give birth to infants with fetal alcohol syndrome. These infants have irreversible physical abnormalities and mental retardation. In addition, research indicates that children of alcoholic parents are at greater risk than other youngsters of becoming alcoholics.

Training and Counseling Resources
Continuous efforts are made to make students, faculty, and staff aware of the on-campus and off-campus programs that provide information and professional services on matters related to the abuse of alcohol and drugs.

The Counseling Center and Student Health Services provide assessment and referral services to University students, as well as serving as an alcohol and other drug information/education resources center. For further information, call 852-6585. Services for faculty and staff are available through the Employee Assistance Program. For further information, call 502-589-HELP.

Other counseling, treatment, and rehabilitation services are available in the Greater Louisville area.

The toll free number for Drug Information Services for Kentucky (DISK) is 1-800-432-9337.

In the Greater Louisville area, the number for Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is 582-1849; the number for Narcotics Anonymous is 499-4423. (Check local telephone directory for listings).
Seven Counties Services (589-4313) offers a crisis and information center with a 24-hour, 365-day-a-year hotline for those with alcohol or drug abuse problems. Ten Broeck Healthcare (896-0495) offers acute care residential treatment for adults with alcohol or other drug problems.

Many other services are available and may be located by looking in the local phone directory yellow pages under "Social Services" or "Alcoholism" or in the "Community Service Guide" section at the front of the telephone directory. Treatment for alcoholism and/or other drug use disorders may be covered by the employee benefit plan. However, the ultimate financial responsibility for recommended treatment belongs to the employee.

Confidentiality
All information received by the university through the drug-free workplace program is confidential communication. Access to this information is limited to those who have a legitimate need to know in compliance with relevant laws and university policies.

Hazing and Initiation Activities Policy

Revised: June 16, 2015

The University is dedicated to promoting a safe and healthy campus environment for its students, faculty, staff, and visitors. As such, the University does not tolerate hazing.

As required by KRS 164.375, the University has adopted a policy prohibiting hazing activities that applies to the conduct of students, faculty and staff, as well as visitors, other licensees and invitees on campus.

Hazing. Engagement, encouragement, or facilitation, by any organization or by any individual on behalf of an organization or group (recognized or not recognized by the university), or visitor within the University of Louisville community in any action or situation which recklessly or intentionally endangers mental or physical health; creates an atmosphere of servitude; involves dangerous, demeaning, or ridiculing activities; involves the forced consumption of liquor or drugs; for the purpose of initiation, admission into, affiliation with, or as a condition of continued membership in, a group or organization. It is also a violation to allow yourself to be hazed. The express or implied consent of the individual will not be a defense. Apathy or acquiescence in the presence of hazing is not a neutral act; it is a violation of the Code.

Violation of this policy by any student or student group will subject the individual and/or student group to the Student Code of Conduct https://louisville.edu/dos/students/codeofconduct. University faculty or staff, are subject to disciplinary action under the provision of the Redbook.

Violations of this policy are subject to referral to appropriate University, and law enforcement officials, as well as to regional and national affiliated offices, for action or prosecution.

Scheduled Tutoring offers students small group tutoring sessions each week for many 100, 200, and some 300 level courses. These sessions provide guided study and review of course material. Tutoring sessions can be scheduled for 60 minute recurring, weekly sessions. Online tutoring sessions are also available, and scheduled drop-in hours are available for select science lab courses, select languages, and other courses. Find more information at: https://reach.louisville.edu/tutoring/tutor-scheduled.html.

Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) provides weekly class reviews and exam reviews to help you succeed in selected courses that have been historically difficult. PAL facilitators work closely with the faculty of these courses to integrate how to learn with what to learn. Find more information at: https://reach.louisville.edu/tutoring/tutor-PAL.html.

Individual Tutoring is available for students who have documented physical or learning disabilities and need accommodated tutoring sessions. Documentation must be provided to REACH from the Disability Resource Center at the time of a student’s request. Students receive individualized tutoring and additional tutoring time in scheduled onsite appointments each week. Find more information at: https://reach.louisville.edu/tutoring/.

Graduate Exam Preparation Workshops are offered for free through our partnership with The Princeton Review. Workshops and free, full-length practice tests are available for the GRE, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT, DAT, and OAT. Interested students may also receive tutoring if preparing for CLEP, a national testing program designed to help students earn testing credit for selected general education courses. Find more information at: https://reach.louisville.edu/seminars/gradschools.html.

Language Conversation Tables offer students conversation opportunities for practice in speaking a new language. Tables vary each semester, but may include Spanish, French, Arabic, ASL, German, and others. These sessions are useful, additional practice to prepare for the classroom and real world scenarios. Find more information at: https://reach.louisville.edu/tutoring/.

Supplemented College Reading Course (GEN 105) (BACB 248) helps first-time, first-year and transfer students with less than 24 credit hours who are admitted to the university with identified college reading deficiencies. Under KY state law, identified students are required to register for a section of GEN 105 (1 credit hour) in their first college semester. All GEN 105 course sections require concurrent registration with a linked general education course in Biology, Psychology, or History. Find more information at: https://reach.louisville.edu/courses/gen105.html.

The Hackademic Series, available to all U of L students, are 50-minute workshops on key topics that impact students’ academic success. Topics always include college strategies: time management, note-taking, textbook reading, test-taking, preparing for finals, and becoming a disciplined student. The Hackademic Series is offered both online and on-site. Find more information at: https://reach.louisville.edu/workshops/workshops.html.

The Math Resource Center (BACB 241):The Math Resource Center (MRC) offers drop-in tutoring to students enrolled in most 100 and 200 level university mathematics courses, as well as Special Topics in College Mathematics courses (GEN 103 and 104). Resources include knowledgeable tutors, a mini-computer lab for mathematics software, and Web-based instruction. The MRC also offers online tutoring appointments for select math courses. Find more information at: https://reach.louisville.edu/tutoring/tutor-drop-in.html.

Special Topics in College Mathematics (GEN 103/104) are intervention courses for college readiness required by KY state law for students who are admitted to the university with identified college mathematics deficiencies. GEN 103 (for non-STEM majors) or GEN 104 (for STEM majors) is based on ACT or SAT Math subscore, or a placement test score that does not meet the requirement for the general-education MATH or quantitative reasoning course for the student’s intended major. GEN 103 and GEN 104 are computer-based courses (three elective-credit hours each) that focus on pre-algebra and algebra topics—such as linear equations and factoring—and utilize an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program. Successful completion of GEN 103 and/or GEN 104 is required for entry to general-education mathematics or quantitative reasoning courses. Find more information at: https://reach.louisville.edu/courses/gen103-4.html.

Math Xcelerator Program offers students who place into GEN 103 a free, four-week intensive review during the summer. Students qualify if their ACT math sub-score is between 0-18, SAT math sub-score is between 0-490, or their Accuplacer score is between 200-262. Successful completion of the program reduces the amount of intervention coursework for the fall semester. Find more information at https://louisville.edu/reach/summermath.

The Speed Calculus Preview Program is a fee-based summer program designed for first-year engineering students. Students are referred to this program based on scores earned on the online Algebra Readiness Exam available to all admitted engineering students prior to their first fall semester. This program provides an advanced algebra review to help students prepare for calculus in the J.B. Speed School of Engineering. Find more information at: https://louisville.edu/reach/summermath.

The Computer Resource Centers (1st floor Learning Commons in Ekstrom Library and the Academic & Leadership Center, JB Speed 107) can help students understand the most common technologies used on campus, including Microsoft Office Suite products, Blackboard, ULink, email, wireless network access, and basic computer operations. Tutoring and test review sessions are provided for select CIS College of Business courses (Ekstrom Library location) and targeted Speed School of Engineering courses that students typically find difficult (Academic & Leadership Center location). No appointments needed at either location! Find more information at: https://reach.louisville.edu/tutoring/tutor-drop-in.html.

Residency Classification

Please visit the residency web site for current information.
Web: https://louisville.edu/residency

Residency Determination for Admission and Tuition Purposes

KRS164.020(8) requires the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education to determine tuition and approve the minimum qualifications for admission to a state supported postsecondary education institution and authorizes the Council to set different tuition amounts for residents of Kentucky and for nonresidents. The administrative regulation, 13 KAR 2:045, establishes the procedure and guidelines for determining the residency status of a student who is seeking admission to, and who is enrolled at, a state-supported postsecondary education institution. Students who wish to seek a change in their initial residency determination may file an appeal for review of residency status with the Registrar’s Office. An application for review must include completed affidavit and verifiable documentation. Applications for review will be considered in accordance with the Kentucky administrative regulation 13 KAR 2:045. The appeal must be submitted according to the published deadlines. The affidavit, state regulation, university policy, deadlines, and instructions may be found and printed from the residency web site or may be obtained from all Offices of Admission and the Registrar’s Office (Houchens 31).

Sexual Harassment Policy

The University of Louisville strives to maintain the campus free of all forms of illegal discrimination as a place of work and study for faculty, staff, and students.

Sexual harassment is unacceptable and unlawful conduct and will not be tolerated in the workplace and the educational environment.

Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when (1) submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual's employment, or participation in a university-sponsored education program or activity; (2) submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for employment or academic decisions affecting such an individual; or (3) such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual's employment or academic performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working or educational environment.

Faculty, staff, students, and administrators must adhere to this anti-harassment policy. The Provost, Vice Presidents, Deans, Directors, and heads of departments, divisions, and offices are specifically responsible within their particular organizations for publicizing, implementing, and enforcing this policy.

Retaliation
Discrimination in any University employment or academic decision against persons who seek redress under the procedures outlined below is prohibited.

Disciplinary Action
If an individual is shown to have violated the sexual harassment policy, the individual will be subject, depending upon the seriousness of the violation, to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment or expulsion from the University.

The Provost, Vice Presidents, Deans, Directors, and heads of departments, divisions, and offices are required to enforce this policy. Failure to do so constitutes a violation subject to separate disciplinary action.
