Non-disability related academic accommodations

Students identifying with one of the non-disability related protected categories who are experiencing barriers to their education are encouraged to reach out to Access and Inclusion Services to explore what academic accommodations may be available to assist them in order to participate fully in their academic studies.

Accommodations and services are intended to remove barriers to learning, allowing access to course information, enabling you, the student, to demonstrate mastery of the course content and 'level the playing field" while maintaining the academic standards and objectives of the course. Services are based on your unique needs and on the course requirements.

Documentation requirements are available here.

Note that the last day to meet with an Access Advisor to put accommodations in place for the current semester is two calendar weeks before the last day of classes.
