Office of Disability Services
To enroll in Disability Services, students or applicants should complete a Disability Services enrollment form and provide documentation from a qualifying professional. The enrollment form and more specific information about required documentation may be found in the Disability Services Application Packet (PDF).
As a post-secondary institution, Athens Technical College cannot accept IEPs or 504 Plans from high school to support the provision of academic adjustments.
By definition, a disability that qualifies a student for accommodations in college is a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities. These activities may include, but are not limited to, caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, seeing, hearing, walking, speaking, breathing, learning, reading, and working.
As a college student, it is your responsibility to:
- Identify yourself to the Disability Services Office as a person with a disability
- provide required documentation in a timely manner
- follow the procedures outlined by the college for obtaining assistance
- advocate for yourself if those academic adjustments and/or auxiliary aids to which you are entitled are not being provided
