Please note: Based on restrictions enacted by the Government of Alberta with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic, accommodation services are currently available to students only through remote delivery. Some services have been modified for remote delivery and to more quickly facilitate students' changing accommodation needs. Access to some services is limited due to remote delivery.

1. Understand your eligibility

Students with diagnoses of permanent conditions are eligible to receive services through Accessibility Resources. Students who are exploring appropriate diagnosis(es) or are unable to provide recent documentation may receive interim services while waiting for documentation.

All students (except international students) using approved accommodation services with Accessibility Resources are required to apply for provincial and federal grants to defray the costs of those services. Failure to apply for both grants may result in an encumbrance being placed on the student's University file until the student makes up the shortfall.

All cases are considered individually and, in the circumstance that grant funding does not cover the cost of the approved accommodation service(s) required by the student, the University will assume responsibility for the remaining balance. International students must work with their Accessibility Advisor to determine funds available to cover the costs of approved accommodation services.

2. Collect accessibility-related documentation

The documents must be completed by a physician, psychologist, or other professional/specialist involved in your diagnosis and/or treatment. Bring all documentation with you to your initial consultation if not previously submitted.
