Applying for Consideration with a Disability

If you were not accommodated for all or part of your high school, previous diploma or degree program, or believe there are extenuating circumstances such as that the accommodations you received were not appropriate which therefore negatively impacted your grades, you may be eligible for consideration on this basis. We expect the marks for students with disabilities who received disability related accommodations in high school or during a previous degree or diploma program will accurately reflect their academic ability.

Important Deadlines

  • If you are applying to the Faculty of Education, your application for consideration on the basis of a disability and supporting documentation must be received by December 15 of the application year.
  • For all other applicants (OUAC 101 and 105), your application for consideration based on a disability and supporting documentation must be received by February 28 of the application year.

HOW TO APPLY

If you meet the minimum published admissions average and program-specific prerequisites for the program you want to enroll in and wish to be considered for admission based on your disability, please submit the following four (4) documents.

You must download and save the documents before complete them.

To be completed by the student

To be completed by the attending health care professional

To be completed by your most recent educational institution

  • A Verification of Accommodations Form indicating whether or not you received disability accommodations (e.g. Accommodation Plan, IEP, IPRC, etc.). This form must be completed by an authorized professional and can be submitted either directly by the institution or by you.

We will only review your application package once we have received all documentation.
