Welcome to the Office of Disability Services (ODS).

Mission:  The Office of Disability Services, a unit of Student Success, is committed to ensuring equal access to learning opportunities for all qualified students with disabilities.  The Office of Disability Services is responsible for coordinating services that will empower students with disabilities to develop and optimize their maximum potential at South Georgia State College.  The Office of Disability Services provides assistance in accordance with Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the policies of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia.

The Office of Disability Services (ODS) at South Georgia State College is administered through:

The ODS seeks to assist disabled students in gaining equal access to all College programs.  Students with disabilities, academic and/or physical, should report any accessibility problems to the ODS.

It is the responsibility of the student to inform the Office of Disability Services of any disability in order to receive accommodations. All students receive a Voluntary Declaration of Disability form upon acceptance to the college. When the student submits this Voluntary Declaration of Disability form to the ODS, the student will be contacted and eligibility for services will be explored. It is also the student's responsibility to provide appropriate, current documentation that specifically substantiates any accommodation requested.
