We provide assistance to students who have some type of impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activity.

All students are considered for admission to the University under the same criteria. Our office does not determine the acceptance of students to Augusta University. At the time you are accepted to the university, we encourage you to contact the Office of Disability Services. Visit the Admissions page for more information.

 

Documentation Requirements

Accommodations are approved on a case-by-case basis and sending 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. For more information, click the link that fits your needs and contact us with any questions.
