Accessing Academic Accommodations at MRU
Meet with Mount Royal University’s Accessibility Services Prospective Student Advisor (Grade 10, 11 & 12) before you apply to the University. The Prospective Student Advisor will help you understand the academic accommodation process and provide details regarding the type of documentation you will need to obtain accommodations. Having the appropriate documentation is the key to receiving services and funding at any post-secondary institution.
Apply to the University and contact Accessibility Services at the same time. You need to see an Accessibility Services Access Advisor to help you with your transition to post-secondary education. It takes several months to organize academic accommodations and funding for disability-related services. Contact us right away!
Accessibility Services needs a copy of your documentation before you see an Access Advisor. When you book your initial meeting with an Access Advisor you will be asked to provide a copy of your documentation (hard copy, email attachment, fax), so have it ready.
Students not yet registered with Accessibility Services can apply by visiting our public request form
If you need guidance or help in regards to obtaining current documentation please let us know at the time you book to see an Access Advisor.
