the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Assistance for Students with Disabilities

Southern Seminary is committed to making both campus facilities and degree programs accessible to students with disabilities. All campus common areas are accessible to those with mobility challenges. Learning accommodations include oral testing, extended time, out-of-classroom testing, as well as extended time for reading and writing assignments.  In the case of reading accommodations, where e-books are not readily accessible, we assist qualifying students with obtaining e-files.

Southern Seminary welcomes any student needing learning accommodations to contact, Mrs. Garnetta Smith, Manager for Disability Services. Disability Services assists students with the following:

  • Arranging learning accommodations. Accommodations include oral testing, extended time, out-of-classroom testing, as well as extended time for reading and writing assignments.
  • Informing professors of learning accommodations.  Prior to the start of each semester, Disability Services will email learning accommodation notices to students’ professors. The Disability Services office functions as a logistical liaison to ensure that accommodations are implemented for the student.  Most out-of-classroom testing will be arranged by the Disability Services office.
