The University of Pikeville is committed to providing equal educational opportunities and full participation for persons with disabilities. The Disability Resource Center (DRC) supports the university’s commitment by coordinating accommodations so that every student with disabilities can actively participate in all facets of the UPIKE educational experience. Our goal is to empower students to be confident self-advocates for their own accommodation needs.
Each person has a different set of skills and needs. Accommodations are determined on an individual basis, utilizing the student’s self-report in the initial interview and disability-related documentation received from the student’s healthcare provider. Some of the accommodations and services available include:
All applicants and students should be familiar with KYCOM’s Technical Standards. The UPIKE Disability Resource Center handles all accommodation requests for students in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. To inquire about UPIKE’s ADA and Section 504 policies, procedures, and/or to request an accommodation, please contact the Disability Resource Center. Students are encouraged to submit documentation to the Disability Resource Center prior to matriculation or as soon as a situation arises that an accommodation is needed.
Preferably, documentation should be in letter form (not prescription,) on professional letter head, and address the following:
Submit all disability documentation directly to the Disability Resource Center. All documents received are kept confidential under FERPA guidelines. No information is released and/or discussed without the consent of the individual.
Note: Disability-related information submitted to other offices on campus (e.g., Admission, Housing, Financial Aid, Athletic Coaches, etc.) may not automatically be forwarded to the Disability Resource Center. This could delay the processing of accommodations.
