Student Remote Delivery Accommodations - Fall 2020

Updated - Monday, August 24, 2020

To support physical distancing benefits with regard to the spread of COVID-19, the Academic Success Centre is working remotely with instructors to coordinate students' academic accommodations. Accommodations will be managed by our office in collaboration with course instructors, or may be managed independently by students as a result of remote delivery. Learn more about roles and responsibilities for remote, in-person, and blended accommodation contexts on our Accommodation Processes and Delivery page.

Review the information below for details about the Fall 2020 accommodation process and important Fall 2020 deadlines. If you have questions about North/Main Campus and Campus Saint-Jean courses, contact arrec@ualberta.ca. If you have questions about Augustana courses, contact augar@ualberta.ca

PLEASE NOTE: 

  • The Academic Success Centre/Accessibility Resources is not proctoring exams in Fall 2020.
  • No exams will be conducted in person on U of A campuses unless they are part of a pre-approved in-person course section. If exam accommodations are required for pre-approved in-person exams, proctoring will be managed by Faculties, and our office will coordinate approved accommodation needs with instructors. 
  • All remote delivery exams will be proctored remotely/online via eClass or other online exam systems.
