Academically qualified individuals with disabilities have equal opportunity and access to a quality education at Augusta University.

We foster an environment that encourages full participation by students with disabilities in every segment of the University.

All students are considered for admission to the University under the same criteria. TDS does not determine the acceptance of students to Augusta University. At the time you are accepted to the university, we encourage you to contact Testing & Disability Services to request accommodations.

Complaint Procedure

Students who have a discrimination complaint or a concern about accommodations, should first attempt to resolve the conflict by contacting the Director of Testing and Disability Services.

The director will investigate the complaint and make reasonable efforts to resolve the matter. The investigation shall be informal but thorough, affording all persons an opportunity to submit evidence or other relevant information.

If efforts to resolve the complaint with the Director of Disability Services are unsuccessful, a written complaint may be submitted via email to the Office of the Dean of Students. The complaint should include the details of the situation, including the names of those involved and steps taken to remedy the situation. The Office of the Dean of Students will investigate the complaint, seek a resolution, and send a written decision of the outcome. For instances when the details of the complaint are more academic in nature, the Office of the Provost may be consulted prior to a resolution being provided.

An appeal of the decision made by the Associate Vice President & Dean of Students (except grades) may be submitted in writing to the Vice President for Enrollment and Student Affairs (VP). The VP will seek a resolution and send a written decision of the outcome. The VP may decide to convene a panel to assist with the decision. 

Reasons for appeal may include one or more of the following:

  • The approved accommodations do not provide adequate access based on the nature of the
    student’s disability.
  • Accommodations limit the student's full participation or accurate evaluation in a specific activity,
    service, program, or course of study.
  • A particular course or requirement is not essential to the integrity of the program of instruction
    being pursued.
