Students should submit any documentation that they feel is appropriate to support their requested accommodations. Helpful information may include medical records, psycho educational testing reports, and school records, such as IEPs or 504 plans. While every request is considered on a case-by-case basis, there are guidelines for documentation set by the University System of Georgia that our team uses in our review. Please note that students should not delay meeting with Disability Services out of concern for not having the right paperwork. Each coordinator will discuss specific third party documentation needs during the Welcome Meeting and steps students can take after the meeting should further documentation be needed. Students should submit the documentation they have and think is appropriate.
Every person is unique. A detailed conversation about the student's experiences and expectations will help identify the information necessary to support individual accommodation requests.
