Welcome to REACH (Resources for Academic Achievement)! We are the university’s centralized academic support unit for undergraduate students. Our primary goals are to enhance or improve students’ academic performance, to help students transition to college life, and to support the university’s retention of undergraduate students. Since its creation in 2000, REACH has evolved into a large and complex academic support unit at the university. Services include:
• Structured study sessions and tutoring for 100, 200, and some 300 level undergraduate courses, including online tutoring options
• Intervention courses in mathematics and reading
• Seminars on student success topics (The Hackademic Series), computer science, computer usage, and test preparation
• Test reviews (CIS and CECS)
• Graduate and professional exam preparation for GRE, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT, DAT, and OAT through The Princeton Review®
• Summer math programs in partnership with Speed School of Engineering (Calculus Preview Program and Brown Forman Engineering Academy)
Our advisors and staff support undergraduate students throughout their academic career. We advise students in the Humanities, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences and Exploratory divisions as well as incoming Freshman.

Undergraduate, graduate, transfer and prospective students require advising and student services to get off to a great start and to stay on track to graduation. The Education Advising and Student Services (EASS) professional staff provides current and prospective students with academic counseling, admissions support, teacher certification information, and student services to meet personal, academic and career goals.
The Disability Resource Center fosters an inclusive campus climate through education, service, collaboration, and outreach to the University of Louisville community. We provide support for students with documented disabilities by promoting equal access to all programs and services.
The Ekstrom Library provides books, magazines, periodicals, and other research materials for UofL students. Ekstrom Library also houses computer labs and other academic resources, such as the Digital Media Suite, the Writing Center, and the Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning. Ekstrom Library is also the home for the Muhammad Ali Institute for Peace and Justice, the Anne Braden Institute, the McConnell Center and the McConnell Chao Archives. Above all else, Ekstrom Library is a place where students can go to have quiet study time in a secure space, or it can be a place where students can meet to socialize.
In conjunction with the university’s and college’s advising practices, the Exploratory Division provides individualized guidance to support students in the thoughtful exploration of education plans that meet their academic and career goals.
