The state of Georgia offers a variety of colleges and universities to accommodate students with learning disabilities. Most of the colleges require a documented diagnosis of disability at the time of enrollment. Others will evaluate the student after enrollment and give out their own diagnosis and design a learning program to the student's needs.

Georgia Perimeter College

Georgia Perimeter College consists of 6 campuses for students to choose from: Dunwoody, Alpharetta, Clarkston, Newton, Decatur and online. The college has a Center for Disability Services that offers students an integrated approach. A documentation of a learning disability is required by Georgia Perimeter. Without an existing diagnosis, the student can request an evaluation by the Center of Disability Services. The campus coordinator will determine diagnosis and eligibility. The student will be required to contact the campus coordinator every semester and request academic support, since each course has different requirements that may be affected by the student's diagnosis.
