Student Accessibility Services and AMAC

If a student has an accessibility issue, or suspects that he/she has an accessibility issue, and would like to be considered for accommodations, there are several options. Each USG institution has an office of accessibility services, and the campus eMajor Liaison can provide information regarding the office on each home campus. Visit the USG eMajor Institutions page to access the accessibility office at your school. Students should contact the accessibility services coordinator at their home institution to discuss the documentation and process required for special accommodations.

It is the student's responsibility to make arrangements with the campus accessibility services office at the beginning of each semester. The student must also notify eMajor instructors and the local proctored test site prior to the time accommodations are needed

How do students access AMAC services?

University System of Georgia eMajor students should contact the accessibility service provider at the institution to which they pay their tuition. The service provider will walk the student through accessing AMAC services. The student will need to provide the service provider with textbook information (i.e. title, author, ISBN, and edition). The accessibility service provider will need to have the student sign an accommodation form which will be kept on file at the institution and a copy faxed to AMAC (706-583­0001). This form can be faxed or emailed to the student for his/her signature.

How do students get access to their books in alternative media (e-text)?

Books in e-text will have an email notification sent to the student, accessibility service provider, or both with instructions on how to download the book. Books from Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic in CD format are typically mailed to the service provider who will give the CD to the student. University System of Georgia eMajor students may have the CD mailed directly to them.

How do students get training on assistive technology?

Students can be trained by the accessibility service provider or can call the AMAC Toll-Free Technical Support Help Line at 866.418.2750. Students might want to check the AMAC website for up-coming trainings in their area. There is also an AMAC Student Guide that can be accessed or downloaded through the AMAC website.

What does the faculty member do when notified that a student has a disability?

When faculty members are provided with official documentation of needed accommodations by either the student or their accessibility office, they should provide all applicable accommodations. If faculty need assistance, they should contact eMajor Administration.
