Disability and Testing Accommodations Policy
If a student has a disabling condition he or she may be eligible for accommodations. It is in the intent of Mercer University School of Medicine (MUSM) to create a transparent accommodations environment for those students receiving testing accommodations. Students who believe that they should receive testing accommodations should contact the Associate Dean of Student Affairs in Macon at 478-301-2652 (firstname.lastname@example.org) to begin the application process.
As required by law, students requiring accommodations for a disability must initially self-identify as a student with a disability by registering with the Office of ACCESS and Accommodation Services. Requesting accommodations is an interactive process and should be completed in a timely manner to allow adequate time for accommodation arrangements to be made. Accommodations may be requested at any time during the academic year regardless of when the student is diagnosed.
