Welcome to the

Center for Disability Services

The Center for Disability Services (CDS) at Auburn University Montgomery recognizes disability as an important aspect of our campus community. CDS works in partnership with the university to provide an environment of equitable access where students are supported holistically as they fulfill their academic and professional goals. In support of this mission, CDS provides reasonable accommodations to students with documented disabilities through an interactive process. All students with documented disabilities who are enrolled in AUM’s degree programs may request reasonable accommodations and accessibility needs through CDS.

Grievance Procedures

The AUM Center for Disability Services has the responsibility of determining a student’s need for academic accommodations. This determination is made through the reviewing of disability documentation and an interactive meeting with the student requesting academic adjustments.

For students receiving academic accommodations through the Center for Disability Services, informal grievance procedures are available to resolve accommodation and other disability related complaints in a timely manner.

The University will not discourage students from pursuing a formal grievance in lieu of the informal grievance procedures. The informal and formal grievance procedures that follow apply to students who believe their rights may have been violated under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504) and/or the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA).

Students not registered with the Center for Disability Services also have the opportunity to file a formal grievance when they believe their rights may have been violated.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office by email at cds@aum.edu or by phone at 334-244-3631.

Please open the document below to view the Grievance Procedure in its entirety.
