Documentation must be from an appropriate licensed professional and follow the University System of Georgia Documentation Policy 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.
All documentation will be sent to the Regents' Center for Learning Disorders (RCLD) for review. The RCLD sets the standard for post-secondary documentation requirements to determine eligibility for appropriate academic accommodations.The RCLD is part of the Board of Regents, the governing body for all public colleges and universities in Georgia. Once our office receives the review from the RCLD you will be contacted via your Bobcats e-mail address to update you on your status.
If the documentation does not meet criteria you should contact the RCLD for an explanation of the review at 706-542-4589. 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.
