Taking Courses at a Different Campus
To implement your accommodations on another campus, you must:
Once AccessAbility Services receives the tranfer of accommodation request from you, your accommodations will be faxed to the office of the applicable campus.
Call the appropriate office at the other campus to book an appointment (see contact information at the end of this section).
If you have specific course concerns, discuss this with the consultant at the campus where the course is taking place. They will be familiar with the campus policies and procedures.
However, if you would like changes to your accommodations or if you would like to discuss disability-related funding, you must speak to your home campus Disability Consultant (e.g. UTSC students taking a course at St. George would speak to their UTSC Disability Consultant).
You should speak with your home campus Financial Aid office and/or your home campus Disability Consultant for any disability-related funding (e.g. OSAP, BSWD).
You are not required to re-submit medical documentation to the other campus' disability office.Your documentation will be kept on file at the disability office on your home campus. If you wish to discuss potential changes to your accommodations, you should contact your home campus Disability Consultant. All updates and changes to your accommodations will be communicated to the other campus where you are taking the course.
The academic calendar is different on each campus so you must ensure that you comply with the accommodation request deadlines on the campus you are taking a course at. For example, due to the differing campus dates for when final exams are held, each campus has a different deadline to submit final exam accommodation requests.
*It is important to note that even though you may be taking a course at another campus, you are required to follow the academic and financial deadlines of your home campus.
Changing Your Home Campus (Transferring Academic Programs)
Once AccessAbility Services receives the request to transfer your file from you, your file will be sent to the applicable campus. This will include your accommodation plan, documentation and information regarding another other services you received.
Call the appropriate office at the other campus to book an appointment to ensure you are registered at the new campus and you are aware of the processes on your new home campus (see contact information at the end of this section).
