Centre for Student Accessibility

Accommodation services and supports are provided from pre-entry through graduation to undergraduate and graduate students. Students are encouraged to register with the Centre for Student Accessibility early in order to ensure that registration is complete prior to the beginning of classes.

The Centre for Student Accessibility upholds the University of Regina's commitment to a diverse and inclusive learning environment by providing services and supports for students based on disability, religion, family status, and gender identity, as mandated under Saskatchewan Human Rights legislation and the Duty to Accommodate. The Centre for Student Accessibility aims to encourage independence, self-advocacy, and equality for all students, while maintaining privacy and confidentiality.

Important Updates

Software Update

The Centre for Student Accessibility is now using Accomodate which allows both students and instructors to view and apply for additional accommodations, submit letter requests and alternate format requests all through an online portal: https://uregina-accommodate.symplicity.com. Please see the following links for both an instructor and student guide on how to use Accommodate. There is also a short video showing students how to navigate the system. These resources are also available in Accommodate under the "Resources" tab.

Exam and Class Accommodations during COVID-19 

Please note that there are some accommodations that will NOT be applicable to remote class delivery. Due to some students receiving on-campus delivery of classes (including labs), all accommodations will remain in student plans. Please only implement accommodations that are relevant to remote classes; where that is the means of class delivery. 

Proctortrack and Accommodations: *NEW INFORMATION*

The University-adopted remote proctoring software, Proctortrack, which records student activity and takes screenshots of the student’s computer during an exam. This software is in place in order to facilitate instructors’ detection and investigation of potential academic misconduct. Some approved accommodations, such as pacing and bathroom breaks, may alert the Proctortrack program. Therefore, if such approved accommodations are part of a student’s accommodation plan, please discuss this situation with the student. It is recommended that when the student needs to temporarily leave the room for a bathroom break or another type of approved accommodation, they should report it to the instructor by using the UR Courses chat function and announce it to the webcam just prior to leaving the room.

Given that the Accommodations Test Centre (ATC) has remained unopened during the COVID-19 pandemic and that some speech to text/text to speech software is incompatible with Proctortrack, it has become necessary to deliver the reader/scribe accommodation to students through Zoom.  Please contact your Faculty if you have a student requiring the reader/scribe accommodation (with the date and time of the exam).
