Launch Galessi Student Success Center

Assistance for Students with Disabilities

Averett University adheres to the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.  As such, Averett University is committed to creating an inclusive environment in which all students have an equal opportunity to achieve academic success and to enjoy campus life without discrimination.  Averett University is devoted to ensuring that all students who submit appropriate documentation of a disability receive reasonable accommodations in accordance with the submitted documentation.  It is our belief that accommodations will provide equal access to opportunities provided by Averett.

Students with disabilities should contact the Assistant Director for Academic Support, Holly Kilby, ([email protected]; 434.791.5754) so the University can evaluate each student’s needs and create a plan for academic success.
