Appropriate documentation includes a statement of diagnosis, how the diagnosed problem impacts your ability to learn, and suggests accommodations in order to validate your request for academic accommodations. Documentation must be current and by a qualified health professional, such as a physician, audiologist, psychologist, psychiatrist, or neuropsychologist.
We have created the forms below to help you understand the University System of Georgia’s documentation guidelines. Among other things, we need to know your diagnosis, current functional limitations, how long you’ve had them, and how long they’ll last.
Just because you’ve sent us documentation DOES NOT guarantee accommodation approval.
Sometimes documentation is also sent to the Regents’ Center for Learning Disorders (RCLD) for additional review or we need to check-in with a university department. We strive to have decisions made as quickly as possible, however; usually within two weeks of request.
