If you are currently registered with the DRC, you may contact your consultant directly. Their email can be found in the About Us page. If you have questions regarding accommodations for testing, please first contact your instructor to confirm how they are administering the examination and how your accommodations will be provided. Any conflicts that arise can be discussed with your DRC consultant. Please also discuss a backup plan for your examination with your instructor in case there are technological problems.

If you are a student seeking to register with the DRC, instructions are provided below. As our current access to our fax machine is limited, please upload documentation of disability in the online intake form or scan and email to drc@uky.edu

Summer 2020 Letters of Accommodation

The DRC will continue to offer students the opportunity to download their Letter of Accommodation (LOA) for the 2019-20 academic year through our online student portal. To access this service, go to the link http://clockwork.ad.uky.edu/clockwork/user/SelfRegC/default.aspx. You should be able to generate the LOA automatically by clicking on the Accommodations Tab, then entering your link blue username and password. Do not include "@uky.edu" or it will not allow you to access your letter. The letter should then be available for printing. We recommend you check the document for accuracy and keep an electronic and/or paper copy for documentation purposes. Your letter of accommodation will remain available at the link above, but will show the current date when printed. Because of the nature of their letter of accommodation, some students will not be able to download from the online portal. These students will need to contact their disability consultant via email to receive their letter. Also, if you feel you need to change your accommodations, please contact your consultant.. Do not request additional accommodations through the online portal.  A captioned video describing how to access and download your accommodation can be viewed by following this link: Accommodation Letter Video
