The Office of Disability Services will work with any student who has a disability to ensure meaningful access to the goods and services offered by Georgia State University which includes the Buckhead, Brookhaven, Alpharetta Centers and online courses. To achieve this goal, academic accommodations are often made on behalf of the student. The On Campus Student Handbook can be reviewed under the University System of Georgia; referral to 3.11 Student with Learning Disorders policy.
The decision of what auxiliary aids and services a student receives is made on an individual basis. To be eligible for these aids and services, a student must bring appropriate documentation to a Disability Service provider. Please refer to Documentation Guidelines for more information. Once appropriate documentation has been submitted, appropriate auxiliary aides and services will be provided to ensure equal access to that individual student.
