- Disability Services
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Academic Resource Center assesses accommodations for students with disabilities based on documentation from a medical professional. Review of documentation may take 3-4 weeks; hence, students should submit documents to the Academic Resource Center in a timely manner, preferably prior to the start of a program or semester. As part of the interactive process, accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis following review of the medical documentation and a meeting with an Academic Resource Center administrator.
Once an accommodation plan has been determined, students will receive an electronic letter. This letter, with the student's permission, will also be distributed to faculty and program advisors. Accommodations are not retroactive; students must make arrangements to meet with their Academic Resource Center advisor and professors at the start of each program or session to discuss implementation of accommodations.
Please visit the ARC's documentation guidelines and accommodation process website for a step-by-step guide on requesting accommodation. Questions regarding the accommodation process or the documentation guidelines, please contact the School of Continuing Studies’ Academic Resource Center at email@example.com or 202-784-7366.
- Veterans Services
Georgetown’s Military and Veterans' Resource Center serves student veterans as they apply to, attend, and advance beyond Georgetown.
