The department of health and wellness coordinates Transylvania’s disability services in compliance with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
Transylvania's disability services coordinator works one-on-one with students, their families, faculty, and staff to ensure disability accommodations are met while maintaining academic integrity and confidentiality. With the help of many constituencies on campus, the coordinator strives to make all aspects of life at Transylvania as accessible as possible.
Students seeking services are asked to provide documentation from their physician or therapist about substantial limitations, specifically as they apply to meeting the demands of university life, in and out of the classroom. Examples of academic accommodations include extended time for exams and note sharing arrangements.
Review the Family Guidebook for Disability Services and Accommodations for more information about how Transylvania can work with you to ensure all your needs are met.

Transylvania University admits students regardless of age, race, color, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status, national origin, or any other classification protected by federal or state law or local ordinance.
