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.
The Accommodate System
Accommodate is a fully ADA compliant web portal that allows students to submit requests, connect with note-takers / transcribers, have assistive devices checked out electronically, and more.
Faculty and Student Resources
Learn about the accommodations and services that the Center for Disability Services may be able to provide to our students.
Students seeking academic or program accommodations will need to provide current documentation from a qualified provider.
Individuals with disabilities have the right to full and self-directed participation in education. Students with disabilities have certain responsibilities regarding their education at AUM.
AUM faculty have certain responsibilities in instructing students with disabilities and must actively participate in the accommodation process.
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.
