Accessibility Services

Accessibility Services coordinates academic accommodations and associated services for incoming and current students.

Our accessibility services team can help with:

  • setting up academic accommodations
  • applying for disability-related funding
  • connecting with other supports and services

Types of disabilities may involve mental health, physical, chronic, sensory and neurological disabilities whether temporary or ongoing, episodic, apparent or non-evident.

Academic accommodation is granted when the functional impact of a disability condition intersects with the academic environment causing a performance barrier.
