Baylor College of Medicine admits students of any race, sex, sexual orientation, color, national ethnic origin, disability or age to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.

Services for Students with Disabilities

Baylor College of Medicine students with medically documented permanent or temporary disabilities who need special services are advised to contact a senior associate dean in the Office of Student Affairs as early as possible. Appropriate documentation will be required of any student requesting special consideration during examinations, performance of course work, laboratories, or clinical duties.

BCM's goal is to provide access to needed resources, for students with disabilities so these students are given every opportunity to do their best work. A disability is understood to be any impairment which substantially limits an individual in one or more major life activity (e.g. walking, seeing, hearing, learning). If requested, a dean will collaborate with other administrators and faculty on adaptations needed for courses and examinations.

For more information, please visit the Office of Student Affairs website.

Please send supporting documentation not submitted online to:

Baylor College of Medicine
Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences
One Baylor Plaza, BCM215
