Title IX and VAWA Protections

Ameris University does not discriminate on the basis of sex in the education program or activity that it operates and is required by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and 34 C.F.R. Part 106 not to discriminate in such a manner.

The requirement not to discriminate in the education program or activity extends to admission and employment and inquiries about the application of Title IX and 34 C.F.R. Part 106 may be referred to the University’s Title IX Coordinator, to the Assistant Secretary of Education or both.

Sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking are forms of sex discrimination, which are prohibited under Title IX and by University policy. For a complete copy of the policy or for more information, please contact the Title IX Coordinator.

Pregnant and Parenting Students


Since the passage of Title IX, sex discrimination - including discrimination on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth, and parental status - has been prohibited. Title IX regulations state that an institution that receives federal funding must not discriminate against any student on the basis of pregnancy or pregnancy-related conditions.

If you are a pregnant or parenting student, please contact the Title IX Office if you have any questions about what you may be entitled to under Title IX.
