Who can register?
Students who have a permanent or temporary disability or who suspect they have a disability and are awaiting an assessment are eligible to receive academic accommodations from Accessible Learning Services.
Temporary disability is a documented disability requiring accommodation which has a recognized endpoint.
Example — a student with a broken arm may require note taking services while they are healing.
Interim accommodations may be available if you are experiencing a serious medical or mental health concern for the first time.
Step 1 - Intake Form
- Download a copy of the confidential intake form and then fill it out.
- Complete all sections.
- Put N/A for anything that doesn’t apply to you.
Step 2 - Disability Documentation
- Submit medical documentation for your disability or disabilities along with your intake form
- If you are applying for OSAP, you will find a Disability Verification Form on the OSAP website. Complete that form by following the OSAP instructions. Make a copy of that form and submit it to our office for your disability documentation
(Verification of a permanent disability through the OSAP office will be needed to access the Bursary for Students with Disabilities and the Canada Study Grant)
- If you are not applying for OSAP, but require academic accommodations, check out this link as a guide to providing disability documentation: Having the right documents.
Step 3 - Submit Forms to Accessible Learning Services

- Remember to keep an extra copy for your own records.
Step 4 - Meet with an Accessibility Consultant to get your Accommodations
- The Intake Coordinator will email you to confirm your registration with Accessible Learning Services.

Step 5 - Accommodations for Placement and Pre-Admission Tests
