The Office of Disability Services for Athens Technical College provides assistance individuals with appropriately documented disabilities who request academic accommodations and/or auxiliary aids in the classroom or for testing while attending the college. The program provides assistance and services to students with disabilities at any of the College’s campus locations in accordance with all relevant federal laws.
The Office of Disability Services requires official documentation of the students' conditions within the last 3 years but cannot accept IEP's or 504 plans from high school. Prospective students must provide documentation from a professional qualified to diagnose their particular disability prior to receiving any academic accommodations or auxiliary aids and must meet the requirements set by the Technical College System of Georgia for students with disabilities. Once reviewed, the disability services coordinator communicated with their instructors each semester outlining the appropriate accommodations which students are eligible to receive during testing and within the classroom.
The Disability Services Intake packet is available on the college website or within the Office of Disability Services. If you need more information about services to students with disabilities, please contact the Disability Service Coordinator on the Athens Campus at (706) 355-5010 or the Georgia Relay Center at 1-800-255-0056 (TYY for VCO).
