Welcome First-Year Class of 2022!

Congratulations on your decision to join our campus community!  Georgia Tech is a nationally ranked, academically challenging, and socially diverse Institute where numerous possibilities await you. We are excited to welcome you to Georgia Tech; the Office of Disability Services is here to provide resources to insure a smooth transition to Tech. Let us answer a few questions for you.

  1. How can I request accommodations? When can I request accommodations? When do I register for classes?
    You will request accommodations through our public New Student Accommodation Request Form. This request form is NOT live yet! So, please do not submit a request yet. We are just as excited as you are to begin your Tech journey, but we have some administrative timelines to work through first. We will post on our website when you are able to submit your Accommodations Request, so please don't panic. In the meantime, please review the documentation guidelines of your disability diagnosis information; when you submit your Accommodations Request, you will need to upload your documentation, so please make sure it meets the University System of Georgia's guidelines.

    You will register for classes during FASET. You can learn more about FASET here. And yes, we will have plenty of time between you registering for classes and classes starting to establish and implement your accommodations.
     

  2. What about Housing Accommodations?
    When you complete your Housing Application, you will indicate you need housing accommodations. Please be as specific and detailed as possible! Think through the daily steps you take now - what about your current living experience is ameliorating the limitations of your disability? Please include this information on your Housing Application.

Please send some time navigating our website as we try to make available information and resources you may need. If our website cannot answer your questions, please email us at dsinfo@gatech.edu
