About Meal Plan & Dietary Accommodations

Brevard College seeks to engage students with disabilities in all aspects of college life, including dining experiences.  For students who reside on campus, dining services are an important part of residential life and are included with Room and Board fees.  Please refer to Brevard College Dining Services to learn more about facilities and menu options.

Occasionally, students have special dietary needs and require an accommodation to the Meal Plan in the form of a special diet. Many times, these needs can be met by Brevard College Dining Services. Exemptions from the Meal Plan are rare. They are made solely for documented health conditions that require special medically and necessitated diets that cannot be accommodated by Brevard College Dining Services. In the rare instance that Dining Services is unable to provide a reasonable dietary accommodation, the student is granted an exemption and Room and Board fees will be adjusted.

Brevard College has established procedures to ensure that students with documented disabilities have access to reasonable on-campus meal plan accommodations. Students should allow adequate time for application review and accommodation considerations.
