2. Provide Disability Documentation
Please provide documentation (pdf) from an appropriate licensed professional that follows the University System of Georgia Documentation Guidelines and documents your impairment(s). If documentation of a disability does not exist, we can assist with seeking licensed professionals who can provide acceptable documentation.

Along with the documentation you can also include any records of accommodations/services provided to you in previous academic settings (e.g. IEP, SOP, Section 504 Plans, or letters from other collegiate institutions).

USG Documentation Policy


3. Schedule a registration meeting
A meeting with our staff will give you an opportunity to learn about our services as well as discuss your disability, how it may affect you in an academic environment, and request appropriate accommodations.

We will review all documentation that you have submitted and accommodations being requested. After review, we will update you in regards to your status.

If the documentation does not meet criteria we will let you know the areas where your documentation is lacking pertinent information. It is your responsibility to contact your medical professional, obtain the appropriate information, and make sure we receive any additional information to add to the original documentation submitted.

If the documentation does meet criteria we will discuss any accommodation(s) for which you qualify, as well as other services that may be available to you.

If you are granted academic accommodations we will prepare an Accommodation Letter for you to pick up for each of your classes. Once you have received this letter you should make an appointment with all of your professors to give them the letter and discuss implementation of your accommodation(s) in their class.
