The UGA RCLD provides consultation to referring institutions regarding disability documentation, eligibility and accommodation decisions, and policy and procedure development.
Referring a student to an RCLD for evaluation
Disability service providers seeking to refer a student to the UGA RCLD should begin by downloading the Referral Packet and providing it to the requesting student. Completed packets should be forwarded to the UGA RCLD.

Outside Review Services
Disability service providers at referring institutions may send documentation from outside evaluators to the UGA RCLD for review and recommendations regarding student eligibility for disability services and accommodations. For more information about review of outside documentation, see Outside Evaluation Review. Notably, some accommodations for USG requirements must be approved by an RCLD. Students who are requesting those specific accommodations are required to submit documentation to an RCLD for approval. See USG Accommodations for Students With Learning Disorders for more information.
Useful forms include:
- Request to Review Outside Evaluations Form
Provided to facilitate the outside review process.
- ADHD Verification Form
Because documenting ADHD for postsecondary disability purposes is challenging, this form guides professionals seeking to provide that type of documentation.
This Provisional Accommodations Agreement Template was designed to be used by disability service providers when working with a student who has a history of disability services but lacks documentation that meets eligibility guidelines. This template was designed to ensure that students receiving provisional accommodations on admissions/placement tests (e.g., COMPASS, iSAT) understand that the granted accommodations are limited to the admissions/placement tests only. Disability service providers can edit the template to meet their needs.
