Follow steps 1 – 3 to register with Accessibility Services for academic accommodations.
Step 1: Obtain required documentation & get your UTORid
Before you continue with the steps below, make sure to activate your UTORid, which gives you access to online services, U of T email (UTmail+) and more. Visit the TCard website to learn more about converting your JOINid to a UTORid and how to book an appointment to get one. Your UTmail+ account is required for communications with the University.
Obtain documentation of your disability. The required documentation depends on the nature of your specific disability or disabilities.
For most cases, the required documentation will be the Certificate of Disability (PDF).
This should be 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. Doctors at Health & Wellness provide disability documentation services when appropriate and where they have assessed and/or treated the student for relevant disability-related concerns.
Read the following sections to determine what documentation you will need in order to register:
- Acquired brain injury or concussion
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)
- Chronic health, mental health, sensory disabilities (including D/deaf, deafened, or hard of hearing) and physical disabilities
- Learning disabilities
- Temporary physical disability
- Not sure if you have a disability?
Step 2: Complete our online Student Intake Form
Have your required documentation (e.g. the Certificate of Disability (PDF), recent medical documentation for concussions, brain injuries and/or temporary physical disabilities, or a psycho-educational or neuropsychological assessment and any supplemental or additional documentation related to your disability) available in a scanned PDF or similar format before filling out the Student Intake Form.
Set aside time to complete the online Student Intake Form without interruption. The form must be completed in one session. You will not be able to save and return to the form. Provide information in all required fields and when instructed, attach your required documentation. See Tips to navigate the Student Intake Form (PDF).
If you are unsure of which documentation you need, or require accommodations or assistance in completing the Student Intake Form, contact our front desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-978-8060.
Step 3: Attend an Intake Appointment
After you submit a complete Student Intake Package, you will be contacted to schedule an appointment with an accessibility advisor.
The accessibility advisor will review your Student Intake Package and discuss any barriers or difficulties you have been experiencing in your academic progress to develop effective accommodations.
The full process for registering with Accessibility Services is available on the Accessibility Services registration and documentation requirements page.
