Assistance for Students with Disabilities

The University of the South is committed to fostering respect for the diversity of the University community and the individual rights of each member of that community. In this spirit, and in accordance with the provisions of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), the University seeks to provide students with disabilities with the reasonable accommodations needed to ensure equal access to the programs and activities of the University.

Students with documented disabilities that require academic adjustments or accommodations should register with Student Accessibility Services (SAS). After documenting disabilities with SAS, students are responsible for requesting academic accommodation letters each semester. Students are also responsible for providing copies of academic accommodation letters to their instructors as early as possible each semester. Accommodations will not be provided without this documentation, and accommodations cannot be applied retroactively. Students who have questions about physical accessibility of their classes should inform their instructor(s) and SAS to ensure accessible, safe, and effective educational environments.

Additional information about accommodations and Student Accessibility Services can be found at the SAS website.
