Alternatively, you can submit a question, and a GGC tutor will respond within 24 hours. You can also select “Writing Help” to submit a paper for review.

CircleIn is an easy-to-use online study group, where you can gather with classmates who share your experience in homework and testing.

Disability Services

Access and Accommodations: It is important to GGC that all students have equal access to the classroom and their educations. If you have already established accommodations with Disability Services, please provide me with your Faculty Accommodation Notification, with your approved accommodations listed. Please do so at your earliest convenience, so we can discuss your needs in this course.

If you have not yet established services through Disability Services (located in D-1404), but have a permanent disability (such as but not limited to: mental health, attention-related, learning, vision, hearing, physical or health impacts), or temporary condition that requires accommodations, you are encouraged to meet with Disability Services. To contact disability services please call 678-407-5195 or send an email to

Disability Services offers resources and coordinates reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities and/or temporary health conditions. Reasonable accommodations are established through an interactive process requiring the student and disability services staff to meet. Disability services will review the documentation provided, discuss functional limitations with the student, along with the classroom environment and potential barriers or access issues. Georgia Gwinnett College is committed to creating an inclusive and accessible learning environments consistent with federal and state law.
