If you are experiencing difficulties affecting your learning and you identify with any of the following disability categories, or believe you may have a disability, we encourage you to register with Accessibility Services for academic accommodations. Accessibility Services supports students registered in courses on the St. George campus.
- Chronic health conditions refer to conditions that last for more than three months e.g. bowel diseases, epilepsy, migraines.
- Mental health conditions can be either permanent or temporary e.g. anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, eating disorders.
- Sensory disabilities relate to vision and hearing e.g. low vision/legally blind and D/deaf/deafened or hard of hearing.
- Physical disabilities can be either permanent or temporary e.g. mobility/functional challenges, broken limb.
To register with Accessibility Services, you will need to provide the Certificate of Disability (PDF) completed by a health care practitioner who is familiar with your disability, whose scope of practice includes your disability and who is licensed to make a diagnosis.
Additional documentation related to your disability can also be provided e.g. a report from an audiologist. If you live with a mental health disability, you are not required to disclose your specific diagnosis. Your physician must confirm a mental health diagnosis exists.
Doctors at Health & Wellness provide disability documentation services when appropriate.
