How to Register

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

ELEVATOR ACCESS: If you are only in need of elevator access (Griffin Hall is the only card activated elevator) please send an email to with a copy of your documentation and Cajun Card. You can also stop by our office at 126 Agnes Edwards Hall and we will be happy to assist you.

Step 1: Submit an ODS New Student Application and upload documentation.

The ODS New Student Application helps us 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 first 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 above). 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 ODS New Student Application, please call 337-482-5252 or email

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.
