LMU is committed to providing accessible educational support services to enable students with disabilities to participate in, and benefit from, all University programs and activities. Every effort is made to reasonably accommodate the needs of a student with a disability. It is important for students to understand that it is the student’s responsibility to request accessibility services at a post-secondary institution, and timely requests for services are imperative for the best possible outcomes in seeking and receiving reasonable accommodations. Our mission is to work with you as a team to remove barriers that may hinder your ability to fully participate in the academic experience at Lincoln Memorial University.
Accessible educational support services are administered by the Office of Accessible Education Services. Any issues related to accessibility, the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (“Section 504”) should be directed to:
