Financial Aid Assistance

  • WKU Financial Aid
  • Students with disabilities are encouraged to contact their local Vocational Rehabilitation Office for additional financial assistance.

Housing

  • Students requesting housing accommodations must provide documentation to SARC from a licensed professional which outlines their diagnosis. Documentation must be from the last three years and include specific recommendations for accommodations (i.e. private room, private bathroom, room on lower/first floor). Once the information is received, SARC will notify WKU Housing and Residence Life (HRL) in a timely manner of the request(s). HRL then determines placement based on the student’s accommodation request(s).
  • Postsecondary education institution as defined in KRS 164.948 shall provide priority for first-floor housing to any student who informs the institution of a disability, or a sensory, cognitive, or neurological deficit or impairment, or a learning disorder, minimal brain dysfunction, dyslexia, pervasive developmental disorder, autism, or Asperger's syndrome. As used in this section, "disability" has the same meaning as in KRS 344.010. Those students requesting first floor housing need to contact WKU Housing and Residence Life
