ADA Public Accommodation Policy

It is the policy of Georgia Southern University to ensure reasonable accessibility to qualified persons with disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act to all goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages and accommodations provided by the Institution either directly or through contractual, licensing or other arrangements.

Georgia Southern University will provide persons with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate in, and benefit from, all of its services without regard to disability.  Such accommodation will be provided in the most integrated setting appropriate to the needs of the individual with a qualified disability. Standards, criteria or methods of administration in the University’s operations that screen out, exclude or discriminate based on disability will not be used by the Institution.

Georgia Southern University is committed to making reasonable modifications in its policies, practices, and procedures to afford equal opportunity to the goods, facilities and services which it offers. Where it is reasonably achievable, architectural and communication barriers will be removed. New structures and alterations will comply fully with all accessibility requirements. Auxiliary aids and services, as appropriate to the individual, and required by the ADA, will be provided at no cost.

This policy is neither exhaustive nor exclusive. Georgia Southern University will take all other actions necessary to ensure equal opportunity for persons with disabilities in accordance with the ADA and all other applicable federal, state, and local laws.
