In compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Title IX of the Education Amendment of 1972, Tabor College does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, gender, religion, disability, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, federal, state, and institutional financial aid policies, scholarships programs, loan programs, athletic programs, admissions criteria or any other college-administered programs.

Effective January 8, 2015, the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights (OCR) granted Tabor College a religious exemption to select portions of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 pertaining to gender identity.
