Information for Students With Disabilities

Emory University seeks to provide a welcoming, accessible and inclusive environment for all students. We take pride in the diversity of the student body and see this as a symbol of institutional strength that will lead students to understanding and respect for difference.

One aspect of diversity is disability. The Office for Accessibility Services (OAS) is the gateway into the institution for individuals with documented chronic or short-term disabilities. It provides services and accommodations based on evidence of need.

Once a student is registered with OAS, the staff will explain the process for receiving accommodations and the responsibilities of students, faculty and staff. It is best for new students to become familiar with the process before they arrive on campus to avoid any delays in receiving the accommodations that have been granted.

See for documentation guidelines. To make an appointment with an OAS staff member or for more information, call 404-727-9877.
