Academic Accommodation for Students with Disabilities, Guidelines and Procedures

5. Provision of Academic Accommodation - General

  1. A number of factors can affect the timeliness of decisions regarding accommodations including but not limited to the adequacy of documentation, the nature of the accommodation requested and the timing of the request. Students are strongly encouraged to engage in the process of requesting accommodation early. Timelines for submission of certain kinds of requests are identified in Sections 5 and 6.

  2. The CSD has authority to make decisions for academic accommodation in accordance with Section 6. Other forms of academic accommodation are decided in accordance with Section 7. CSD advisors can help to identify appropriate academic accommodations, provide supportive information required in order to access resources, and assist in the arrangements for appropriate academic accommodations.

  3. Students registered with the CSD who need to have textbooks produced in alternate format (e.g., DAISY, Braille, large print, or e-text) must make the request directly to the Library Accessibility Services at least two months prior to the start of classes. Students with disabilities should consult the course outline prior to the commencement of the class to determine the required readings.
