How does the DRC decide if a student qualifies for academic accommodations?
The student is responsible for contacting the DRC and providing documentation of a disability. The staff uses federal regulations as a guide to determine what academic accommodations the student is eligible for in the classroom. Academic accommodations are not provided to ensure a student’s academic success, but are provided to give the student equal opportunity during their academic career at the University of Georgia.
