How to Register

UL Lafayette students can register with The Office of Disability Services (ODS) by following the steps below.

NOTE: Students with a temporary injury (e.g. broken arm, concussion, surgery recovery) do not need to submit an application. Instead, please stop by the office during walk-in hours (7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday- Thursday and 7:30am- 12:30pm on Friday). If your injury is not readily observable, please bring a doctor’s note or other relevant documentation with you.

Step 1: Submit a New Student Application and upload documentation.

The New Student Application helps ODS better understand the impacts of your disability and your accommodation requests. The application includes a file upload feature to provide ODS with your disability documentation.

You must be accepted to the University and have a ULID login to register.

  • Important: Your application is not complete and cannot be processed until you have uploaded your disability documentation to your application (unless your disability is readily observable; see bullet point below). If you have any difficulties or questions related to submitting your application or uploading files, please contact ODS.
  • For guidance on the documentation required, review our Documentation Guidelines.
  • Students with readily observable disabilities (e.g. wheelchair user, white cane user) can contact ODS after submitting your application in lieu of uploading documentation.
  • For assistance with the New Student Application, please call 337-482-5252 or email disability@louisiana.edu.

Step 2: If approved, you will receive an email with instructions on how to schedule your accommodation meeting.

  • All emails will go to your university email account.
  • Typically, these emails are sent within 7 business days of documentation receipt.
  • If not approved, the email will provide instructions for how to provide sufficient documentation.

Step 3: Schedule and attend your Accommodation Meeting.

  • During an accommodation meeting, you will meet to discuss your submitted application, barriers you experience in your academics, accommodations that provide equal access, and how to set up those accommodations.
  • You are not officially registered with ODS until after you have completed your Accommodation Meeting.

-If you have any questions about the registration process, please contact ODS at 337-482-5252 or email disability@louisiana.edu.
