Contacting Us

The Disability Resource Center is open and ready to assist you, 9am - 5pm, Monday - Friday.  Please call 502-852-6938 for assistance.  We are meeting with students via phone or video call, so please contact us to set an appointment.

Accommodating Students Online

With more classes happening online, faculty may need some information about accommodating students with disabilities in the online environment.  If you have any students with the accommodation of extended time on exams, tests, and quizzes, the Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning has created some instructions on Providing Extra Test Time in Blackboard (PDF). If you have any questions about the needs of a specific student with a disability in your course or how a particular accommodation will work in the online environment, please contact us for assistance.

Submit Fall Service Requests

New Students

If you are a new student to the Disability Resource Center, please see our Getting Started Checklist for guidance on how to connect with our office. You will submit your first Service Request Form during your intake appointment with your coordinator.  These meetings are conducted via phone or video call.

Returning Students

Once you have registered for your courses, we encourage you to submit your Service Request Form as soon as possible. The priority deadline for the fall semester was July 31, 2020.  Requests may be submitted after the priority deadline, but note takers will not be solicited in advance and there may be delays in preparing your letters and implementing your accommodations.

Students who need to request books in alternate format should also submit an Alt Text Request. If you need any additional accommodations, including accommodations in a practicum or internship setting, please contact your coordinator as soon as possible to discuss your needs.

Workforce Recruitment Program

Are you interested in working in the government next summer or after you graduate? The Workforce Recruitment Program for College Students with Disabilities (WRP), coordinated by the U.S. Department of Labor and the U.S. Department of Defense, is a recruitment and referral program that connects federal and select private-sector employers with highly motivated college students, graduate students, and recent graduates with disabilities who are eager to demonstrate their abilities in the workplace through summer or permanent jobs.

Eligible students must:

  • have a disability and be eligible under the Schedule A hiring authority
  • be a United States citizen
  • be currently enrolled in a degree program on a substantially full-time basis OR have graduated with a degree on or after April 1, 2018.

Visit the Workforce Recruitment Program site for more information regarding WRP and click on the student registration button to get started. All necessary materials must be submitted by October 14, 2020. No late applications will be accepted. You will need time to gather your resume and transcript, and complete your application, so please don’t delay!
