Our Accessibility Services office assists prospective and current students with disabilities who identify special needs and require academic accommodations. We support students with physical or learning disabilities, sensory impairments, mental health issues, or chronic medical conditions. Experts will help you access academic supports such as alternative entrance testing arrangements, exam accommodations, individualized learning strategies, tutoring, note-taking assistance, technology training, and on-going disability counselling. We’ll show you how to secure funding to provide your individualized disability-related supports. Just let us know before you arrive if you require any assistance, so arrangements can be made before you begin classes.
