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.
Learn about the accommodations and services that the Center for Disability Services may be able to provide.
Students seeking academic or program accommodation(s) will need to provide current documentation from a qualified provider. Here are the documentation requirements for accommodation requests:

AUM’s philosophy is that individuals with disabilities have the right to full and self-directed participation in postsecondary education. Students with disabilities have certain responsibilities regarding their educational experiences at AUM.
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 button below provides informal and formal grievance procedures for students who believe their rights have been violated under Section 504 (of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973) and/or the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
Please Note: 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 [email protected] or by phone at 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.
An Individualized Education Plan (IEP)/ 504 Plan would not be appropriate documentation for receiving accommodations from the Center for Disability Services. Please refer to FAQ number 6 for more information.
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.
