Registering Service Animals:

This information is for students who, due to a disability, require the use of a trained service animal. If you are looking for information on registering service animals in training, scroll to the last section of this page. 

If you require the use of a service animal that has been trained to perform tasks for you because of a disability, you are not required to register your service animal, but you may choose to do so. The benefit of registration is that you may be less likely to be questioned about your service animal’s presence in Augusta University facilities. However, registration is entirely voluntary.

If you choose to register your service animal, please fill out the following Service Animal Form and return it to TDS at or in-person on the first floor of Galloway Hall.


For more information about service animals policy, please visit the AU Service and Assistive Animal Policy

If any student or employee has questions regarding the designation of the service animal, they should contact Testing and Disability Services.
