Disability Services

The Master’s University has an institutional commitment to try to provide equal educational opportunities for qualified

students with disabilities in accordance with applicable state and federal laws and regulations, including the Americans

with Disabilities Act of 1990 (as amended) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. To ensure equality of

access for students with disabilities, academic and/or non-academic accommodations and auxiliary aids shall be

provided to the extent required to comply with the state and federal laws and regulations. For each student, academic

and/or non-academic accommodation and auxiliary aids shall specifically address those functional limitations of the

disability that adversely affect equal educational opportunity. The Master’s University and Seminary has established the

Office of Disability Services (ODS) to coordinate compliance with the various regulations and sovereign scriptural

issues and to assist qualified students with disabilities. Students wanting to inquire of such services should contact the

ODS at 661-362-2269 or by fax at 661-362-2717.

DISCONTINUED PROGRAM TEACH-OUT POLICY

If, at any time, the decision is made to discontinue offering a degree and/or major/emphasis program, The Master’s

University and Seminary (TMUS) administration will make financial and curricular arrangements to ensure that any

student who has completed 50% of the required program coursework at TMUS will be able to complete his/her degree

program. This may be accomplished through a variety of strategies, including offering directed studies of discontinued

courses, substituting appropriate alternative elective course opportunities, and/or accepting a larger than normal amount

of transfer units to meet degree requirements.

Students will be charged the same tuition and fee rates for completing a discontinued program as are being charged to

students in comparable ongoing TMUS degree/major/emphasis programs.
