Welcome to Clark Atlanta University. The staff of the Office of Counseling and Disability Services (CADS) are pleased you are interested in pursuing your educational aspirations at CAU. The Office of Counseling and Disability Services holds as its goal the success and enrichment of every student with a disability at CAU. 

Purpose

The purpose of the Office of Counseling and Disability Services is to provide reasonable accommodations that may be necessary in order for students with documented disabilities to have equal access to educational opportunities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as amended in 2008 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

Registration Process

The registration process plays a significant role in the daily operations of the Office of Counseling and Disability services. It allows the office to track student engagement in the program and to provide appropriate and reasonable accommodations and services to students with documented disabilities. Most students register with the Office of Counseling and Disability Services after being referred by faculty, staff, rehabilitation counselor, school counselor, licensed clinician, and/or another student who is receiving services. The registration process is expedited when a student self-discloses he/she has a disability, makes a request for accommodations and/or services provided by the office.
