I am an incoming freshman. Will I receive the same accommodations as in high school?

The Academic Resource Center strives to provide the most appropriate accommodations for each student based on documentation from a medical professional while encouraging students to take advantage of all available resources at Georgetown. Accommodations identical to those provided in high school are not guaranteed. Contact the Academic Resource Center to inquire about the accommodation process.

I am taking summer classes at Georgetown but am enrolled at another university. Can I receive accommodations?

Yes. Summer students must provide documentation from a medical professional; a letter from the student's home school's disability support office is not sufficient. Once appropriate documentation is received, the student must meet with the Disability/Learning Skills Advisor - SCS to determine accommodations and familiarize the student with policies and procedures in the Academic Resource Center.

If I suspect that I have a learning disability, can I be tested at the ARC?

The Academic Resource Center does not provide psychological testing; however, a student should consult Dr. Jane Holahan to discuss the evaluation process.

Does being registered with the Academic Resource Center as having a disability impact my academic record?

No. Being registered with the ARC as having a disability will not appear on students' academic records.

What is the process for making a test reservation?

To reserve a spot in the testing room, students must be registered with the Academic Resource Center. Students must pick up a test reservation form from the Academic Resource Center office, fill out the student section, have the professor fill out his/her section, and return the form to the Coordinator of Administrative Services at least seven (7) days prior to the testing date. For more information, see Test Reservations.
