Accessibility Services

Accessibility Services ensures that the academic environment is accessible whether you are onsite or online. Barriers to learning are identified and resources are offered to support learning. Do you have a disability that requires physical adaptations or learning accommodations? Students who learn differently or who have physical challenges are encouraged to contact the advisors in Accessibility Services to discuss their program of study and any accommodations required. Accessibility services are designed for students who may have restrictions resulting from a physical, sensory, or mental health disability.

We encourage students to register with Accessibility Services and plan to attend the Accessibility Services Orientation before you begin your studies so that your supports are ready for you when you start classes.

Reach out for assistance if you live with:

  • Hearing impairments
  • Visual impairments
  • Mobility impairments
  • Learning differences and/or ADHD
  • Mental health problems (including anxiety and stress)
  • Medical conditions

Accommodations are designed to meet the unique needs of each individual.

  • Note-taking for lectures

  • Extended time for tests and exams
