1. Understand your eligibility

Before you begin to register with Accessibility Resources, take time to understand the guidelines used in determining reasonable accommodation. Accessibility Resources can assist students who are exploring appropriate diagnosis(es) or are unable to provide recent 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 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 Resources accessibility advisor to determine funds available to cover the costs of approved accommodation services.
