Enroll in TLC
To enroll in this program, you must first be accepted to GCU. Indicate your interest in the program on your application. You can send documentation about your disability to the Office of Admissions if you choose to self-identify; otherwise, you may submit documents directly to the Office of Disability Services.
From there, you will meet with the director to discuss your academic needs and set up a support plan.
