How can students submit an accommodations request?

In compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Evangel University has established procedures to ensure that students with documented disabilities have access to reasonable on-campus meal plan (dining) accommodations. According to the ADA, a disability is defined as any mental or physical impairment that substantially limits the individual in a major life activity compared to the average person. There must also be a legitimate connection between the disability and the requested accommodation.

 

All students living on campus are required to purchase the university meal plan. Occasionally, students have special needs based on documented health conditions, such as those resulting in certain dietary restrictions, which may necessitate a meal plan accommodation. Meal plan accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis, according to documented need and applicable standards for reasonable accommodations. Students must follow these procedures and provide all of the required information in order to be considered for meal plan disability accommodations.

 

We offer many dining options capable of accommodating different dietary needs, including student specific meal preparation for allergies, in addition to a wide array of healthy eating choices. We encourage students to talk with Dining Service’s staff first to inquire about all of the dining options before pursuing a meal plan accommodation. A complete exemption from participation in the meal plan is rare but will be considered when needs cannot be accommodated by Evangel Dining Services.
