Student FAQs

Where are you located?

We are located on the second floor of Cone Hall on the Statesboro campus and on the second floor of the Memorial College Center on the Savannah campus.  The Savannah campus also serves students on the Liberty campus.

Do you test for AD/HD or Learning Disabilities?

Our office does not perform the evaluations.  However, students who would like to have a full, psychoeducational evaluation can meet with one of our professional staff members to facilitate that process.

What accommodations and services are offered to students with disabilities?

Our office is responsible for assisting students in the implementation of accommodations for which they are eligible.  We ensure that students with conditions affecting their access to academics, classrooms, buildings, housing, or any other aspect of campus life have an equal opportunity to participate as any other student.  This is achieved through a variety of accommodations and services.  Some of these services include: accommodation letters for faculty, test proctoring services, provision of books in alternate formats, note-taking services, equipment loans, remote captioning services, sign language interpreters, early registration, and faculty consultation.  Accommodations are determined on and individualized basis.

What do I have to do to get accommodations if I have a disability?

In order to receive services, you need to voluntarily declare that you have a disability by filling out the Voluntary Declaration of Disability form.  SARC will then contact you to schedule a meeting with one of our staff members.  Students are responsible for providing documentation of a disability. The  Board of Regents’ documentation standards can be found on their webpage.

If I need a refrigerator in my room for medication, what do I do?

Have your doctor/medical provider complete the Housing form: Housing Accommodations Request Form. This form is not an online form. It should be printed, filled out by the licensed treatment provider and returned to SARC as noted on the form.

What types of disabilities do you honor?

We provide services for students with a variety of conditions that affect their daily college life including: Acquired Brain Injuries, ADD or AD/HD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Communication Disorders, Hearing Impairment, Learning Disabilities, Mobility Impairment, Psychological Disorders, Systemic Medical Disorders and Visual Impairment.  If you’re not sure if you have a disability, please schedule an appointment to meet with one of our professional staff members for a consultation.

There are several ways that a student can receive a full, psychoeducational evaluation.  If you would like to be evaluated, please schedule an appointment to meet with one of our professional staff members who will guide you through that process.

Can I get my medication from you?

The Student Accessibility Resource Center does not provide any type of services related to medication.  Please schedule an appointment to meet with one of our professional staff members who will refer you to appropriate on- or off-campus resources.
