Accommodation Process

Academic accommodations are modifications made to the usual University procedures and/or the provisions of support services. Accommodations help create the opportunity to demonstrate knowledge without fundamentally altering core course requirements. Accommodations are determined individually, based on appropriate assessment and documentation, consultation with an Accessibility Advisor, and instructional criteria.

Accommodation Process

  1. Make an appointment with an Accessibility Advisor. If you do not have current documentation the Advisor will help guide you through the process of obtaining verification.
  2. Register with the Centre for Student Accessibility and provide supporting documentation from a regulated health practitioner.
  3. Determine which accommodations you are eligible to access. At your appointment you will review your documentation, discuss your learning needs, and complete a Registration Contract outlining your recommended accommodations and corresponding expectations.
  4. Decide how to approach your instructors. Your Accessibility Advisor will assist you in deciding how you want to approach your accommodation requests with your instructors.
  5. Monitor your uregina e-mail account. Accommodation Requests are sent, via e-mail, to yourself, your instructors, and supporting staff every semester. Once the documentation is sent out, you must contact your instructors to discuss how your accommodation needs will be met.
  6. Contact your instructors. Accommodations are organized through your instructors and the supporting faculty. To ensure that your accommodations are in place it is important to ensure that your instructors are aware of your specific needs.
  7. Accommodation letters are issued on a semester-by-semester basis. You must request letters for each semester that you intend to use your accommodations. Your letters will not be issued without a request.
