Procedures for Requesting Accommodations
A student seeking accommodations has the legal responsibility to request accommodations in a timely manner and to provide the institution with appropriate, current documentation of the disabling condition. Sufficient advanced notice of a request for accommodations is required in order to give the Office of Student Disability Services a reasonable period of time to evaluate the request and documentation. A student may submit a request and documentation any time during his/her enrollment at North Georgia, but no action based on the request and documentation is retroactive.
To receive disability accommodations at North Georgia, a student must comply with the procedures listed below:
- Be officially admitted to North Georgia
- Register with the Office of Student Disability Services
- Submit current, written documentation from appropriate professional personnel, which is subject to verification by North Georgia
Approval of reasonable accommodations will be made on a case-by-case basis on the justification contained in the written documentation provided by the student.
Students who believe they have experienced discrimination on the basis of a disability can seek resolution through grievance procedures established by North Georgia College & State University. These procedures are clearly outlined in the publication Academic Program Access for Students with Disabilities, which is posted online at www.northgeorgia.edu/disabilities and is available in all departments.
