Applying for Services

Students with disabilities at Georgia Tech will find programs designed to coordinate academic accommodations and promote access to all phases of life at the Institute. Accommodations are available to undergraduate and graduate students with disabilities. This section of our website provides information on how to register with the Office of Disability Services in order to receive appropriate academic and programmatic accommodations.

Students who are seeking services must self-identify to the Office of Disability Services. Because some accommodations require significant pre-planning, we recommend that you begin the application process well in advance of the start of your first semester. Students are eligible to register with Disability Services at anytime during their academic career at Georgia Tech.

How to Register

1.) Complete and submit the Request for Services form found at the bottom of this page. Please complete this form in its entirety and sign where indicated.

2.) Submit appropriate documentation in the form of an evaluation performed by a qualified professional (such as a licensed physician, psychologist, audiologist, etc.) More information on documentation can be found on our "Documentation Guidelines" page. All documentation remains confidential.

3.) Attend an Intake appointment with a Disability Services staff member to address documentation, appropriate accommodations and services, and office policies.

Students may submit information at any time during the semester. However, it can take up to fifteen (15) business days for the information to be reviewed. Applications will not be reviewed until both the Request for Services form and supporting documentation have been received. This information can be mailed, faxed, emailed, or delivered in person. If faxing the information, please make sure it is addressed to Office of Disability Services.

Once the information has been received, students will receive an email confirming receipt of the completed application. Information will be reviewed on an individual, case-by-case basis in the order that it is received. If you have not heard from Disability Services within three (3) weeks of submitting your Request for Services form and documentation, please contact the office. After the review, the student will be notified via email whether their documentation meets Georgia Tech criteria.

  • If the disability documentation does not meet established criteria, the student will be informed of the additional information that is needed.
  • If submitted documentation meets the established criteria, the student will be contacted to schedule an Intake appointment with a Disability Services staff member.
