Meet with your Accessibility Advisor

The Accessibility Advisor will collect information related to the effect of the disability on access, learning, behaviour, and/or performance while pursuing your studies and complete an Initial Intake form with you. Depending on these effects, a variety of accommodations and/or actions will be discussed, considered, and decided upon.

You and your Advisor will enter information into the Clockwork program which outlines your required accommodations. Students will be assigned a status indicating their level of access to SAS services and the follow up required.

Referrals

Students lacking documentation of their disability or who are unable to provide recent documentation will be referred to the appropriate service(s) for assessment and/or to obtain documentation. If you believe you have an unconfirmed disability, you must commit to the process(es) involved in obtaining assessment and documentation as asked by the Accessibility Advisor. Students pursuing an assessment may be given accommodation during the process, but failure to follow through the process may result in losing accommodations.
