Center for Disability Services

We provide academic support services to students with disabilities.

By providing opportunities for enhancing educational, technological, vocational and self-advocacy skills, we help individuals with disabilities to become more self-reliant, self-motivated and more successful citizens of the community.

Policies & Procedures

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.

Disability Services FAQ

If you have any comments or questions about this FAQ, please contact the department at cds@aum.edu or (334) 244-3631.

All students attending Auburn University at Montgomery (AUM) with documented disability are encouraged to register for services provided by CDS.

First, you must be admitted as a student of the University, then complete the Accommodate Student Request form: https://aum-accommodate.symplicity.com/public_accommodation. To make the process more efficient, please upload disability documents at the time of your Accommodate Student Request. After submitting your request, CDS will follow-up with you about the status of your request. If incomplete, CDS will provide guidance on what is needed and how to proceed with your request. If approved, CDS will contact you to schedule an intake interview to identify appropriate accommodations needed for class(es) or lab(s). After your intake interview, you will be able to request your digital accommodation letters through your Accommodate student portal.

CDS oftentimes acts as a liaison between the student and faculty/staff, but we also promote self-advocacy. We inform and encourage our students to speak one-on-one with their instructors so that they can provide them with the best possible accommodations available.

The Center for Disability Services is located in the Taylor Center, first floor, room 147. The Center’s office hours are: Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

Phone: 334-244-3631. Fax: 334-244-3907. E-mail address is cds@aum.edu.

We will gladly fax, e-mail, or even mail you a copy of this information. This information is also updated online. Visit the Documentation Criteria for more information.
