We provide assistance to students who have some type of impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activity. Examples of disabilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Hearing, visual, or physical impairments
  • Psychological disorders
  • Learning disorders
  • Attention Deficit Disorder
  • Autistic Disorder
  • Asperger's Disorder

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

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.

In order to receive accommodations, visit our How to Receive Service Tab. For additional information about your documentation and what we look for, please visit our documentation criteria page and feel free to contact us with any questions. To schedule an appointment with a Disability Service Provider, email tds@augusta.edu or call (706) 737-1469.

Think you have a disability, but never been evaluated? Contact a qualified licensed provider in your insurance’s network or email tds@augusta.edu for referral information.

*TDS does not test or evaluate students for disabilities in our office but we can help you with referrals and steps to get tested.*
