Reduced course loads
Students with a disability can take 40% of a full course load and still be considered a full-time student with all the rights and privileges that accompany that designation—including eligibility for OSAP.
Students who are using OSAP support, however, must have a permanent disability to reduce their course load to 40%, without affecting their OSAP status. All students can reduce their course load to 66% of a full course load and still be considered full time by OSAP.
You may find your learning needs are best met if you reduce your number of courses during a semester.

Test and exam accommodations
You can request accommodations to take quizzes, tests, mid-terms and exams. Accommodations include extra time (time and a half) and a quieter space to write the test in one of our Assessment Centres — usually at the same time as the rest of your class.
