Central Georgia Technical College provides equal opportunities to qualified students with documented disabilities. Assistance is available for students with physical or psychological disabilities or with learning disorders, including but not limited to attention deficit disorder, acquired brain injury, and specific learning disabilities. To receive services, students must self-disclose, request accommodations, and provide documentation that meets the guidelines set forth by the College and by the Technical College System of Georgia. Evaluations submitted as documentation must clearly indicate that a physical, psychological, or learning disorder is present and substantially limits one or more of the major life activities. For all types of disabilities, reasonable accommodations are provided in order to offset as much as possible the effect the disability may have on learning, classroom performance, and testing. Based on the student's documentation and a personal interview, an accommodation plan is developed by a Special Populations Coordinator.
Students with disabilities who wish to request accommodations must contact the Special Populations Coordinator for the student's campus of admission and set an appointment by phone or e-mail to meet with a special populations staff member to begin the documentation approval and academic adjustment process. Services are available on all campuses and will be coordinated by the campus's Special Populations Coordinator.
