The Travel Academy does not monitor the hiring requirements of every employer.  It is the responsibility of the prospective student to conduct further research and assess for additional requirements and determine if the prospective student can perform all essential functions with or without reasonable accommodation, prior to the start of the program.

Certain tattoos and tattoo locations, past felonies/misdemeanors, height, certain prescribed medications, and/or any physical or mental condition that would limit a person’s ability to effectively deal with emergencies encountered in the travel industry will not preclude students from attending TTA, however; employment opportunities for people in such situations may be limited due to employer hiring restrictions.

Because The Travel Academy holds confidentiality to the utmost standards, we cannot share any information with people other than students unless they provide express written authorization to share information with outside parties. 

TTA does not discriminate on the basis of color, national origin, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, religion, or any other characteristic protected by state or federal law, in our programs and activities. Should student have any concerns regarding this policy or any possible violations thereof, the student shall immediately address this issue in accordance with the Complaint Procedures described in the Student Catalog.
