Important Dates and Deadlines

When making accommodation requests, students need to give the university (AccessAbility Services, Faculty, and Staff) ample time to ensure that accommodations will be available when needed.  Students should factor in not just requesting the accommodation but meeting with the staff and providing documentation if requested.

Please see the deadlines below to help ensure the service has enough time to arrange accommodations or other supports.

 

Requests to Register for Services (Intake and Documentation Review)

Registering at the end of a term (e.g. March/April) may result in the service referring students to the petition process as the service may not have enough time to meet with a student before the end of the term to determine eligibility, assess their disability-related needs, create and implement an accommodation plan.

 


Requests to Change Accommodation Plan

Depending on the nature of the request the service may not have time to implement an accommodation request at the end of a term within the time frame to implement before the term is over.  If students are considering requesting a change, we encourage you to follow up with your healthcare provider, gather relevant documentation and book a meeting with a Disability Consultant during the term as this will help reduce any wait time for implementation.

*Late requests will be considered on a case-per-case basis for exceptional circumstances.
