With respect to admissions, Sage welcomes all academically qualified students to our campuses in pursuit of their chosen career paths, creative and intellectual development and to explore life’s curiosities. Our policy for Trans* and Gender inclusive excellence stems from this vision, our anti-discrimination policy and federal Title IX guidelines, which prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, gender identity and gender expression.

    Trans-health refers to both trans-medicine (hormones and surgery) as well as access to competent mental health services. Unfortunately, many therapists have had no training in trans-affirming health care, forcing trans people to educate their therapists when they are most in need of support. At Choices, we are trained and experienced in trans-health, and many of our providers are Certified through WPATH GEI* and can provide counseling for gender dysphoria, coming out, accessing resources, medical referrals, or pursuing gender transition.
