Disability Resource Center
In recognition of disability as an important part of the diversity of our community, the Disability Resource Center fosters an inclusive campus climate through education, service, collaboration, and outreach to the University of Louisville community. We provide support for students with documented disabilities by promoting equal access to all programs and services.
DRC Online Portal
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
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.
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 Winter session is November 30. Given the accelerated nature of these 3 week courses and the fact that the DRC will be closed for 2 weeks during the term, it will be especially critical that students submit their requests early to ensure that accommodation arrangements can be made. Since late requests may not be processed while the University is closed, students who are unsure if they will need accommodations are encouraged to go ahead and request them.
The priority deadline for the Spring semester is December 4. 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.
