Accommodation & Disability Services (ADS) is dedicated to ensuring nondiscrimination and equitable access to programs, courses, and activities for qualified students with disabilities. The Accommodations Coordinator works with students, faculty, and staff in developing reasonable accommodations and strategies for a successful learning experience while maintaining classroom rigor and academic standards.
Step One: Let us know you plan to apply for accommodations
Complete the Voluntary Declaration of Disability by clicking here.
Step Two: Schedule an Access Meeting
Schedule an appointment with the Accommodations Coordinator by clicking here. Appointment types include face-to-face, virtual, or by phone, and will last about 45 minutes. While documentation is not required to schedule a meeting, students are encouraged to submit documentation as soon as possible. Please review our Documentation Guidelines for more information.
Step Three: Submit Documentation
You can submit documentation in any of the following ways before, during, or after your initial Access Meeting:
- Email ADS at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Fax: 229-391-4996
- Drop off in person at the ADS Office. Located on the third floor of the Carlton Center, Suite 314.
Please review our Documentation Guidelines for additional information. All documentation is kept confidential.
If ADS has not confirmed receipt of documentation within two business days after submission, please contact us.
Step Four: Decision and Accommodation Letter
After the Access Meeting, students will receive a notification regarding their accommodation requests. Once approved, students will be provided an accommodation letter to provide their instructors and the option for a 15-minute meeting to ask questions about approved accommodations. Please note the approval process can take between 15 to 20 business days.
Students with no documentation
ADS can work with students who have never been formally diagnosed with a disability or cannot afford to get documentation. We recommend these students make an appointment with our Accommodations Coordinator by clicking here to discuss their specific situation, explore options for support, and identify options to move forward with obtaining documentation.
