Accessibility Services operates under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) laws in order to assist in leveling the playing field for students who have disabilities with those who do not. The amended ADA, otherwise known as ADAAA defines "disability" as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. The Accessibility Services Provider reviews all accommodation requests. In order to receive accommodations, the student's illness or disability must be verified in writing by a physician, psychiatrist, or some other health care provider or specialist. Students choosing to access disability support services should contact the DSP as soon as possible after acceptance to AMSC. Please be aware that late notifications may result in complications for establishing accommodations in a timely fashion.
If you feel that you have a disability or impairment that may limit your academic functioning, please contact
The Department of Counseling and Accessibility Services, at (404) 756-4016, in the Student Success Building #650 Room 252.
