Student responsibilities

  • Register with the Student Accessibility Services to discuss with an accessibility advisor or learning strategies counsellor your needs for accommodations. Together you will determine whether an accommodation will enhance your ability to successfully meet the requirements of a course.
  • Allow sufficient time to put those accommodations in place.
  • Attend all classes.
  • Be an integral part of developing an appropriate accommodation plan for each semester.
  • Contact Student Accessibility Services if you need to cancel or reschedule a meeting with your advisor or counsellor.
  • Inform your advisor or counsellor of any changes related to your disability, your courses, or your test or exam schedule. Likewise, if you drop a course for which exam accommodations have been arranged, please let your advisor or counsellor know.
  • Maintain contact with your advisor or counsellor throughout the school year. Remember to reach out when you need help or when problems arise.
  • Meet with instructors as needed to discuss your accommodations.
  • Provide recent psychological or medical documentation from a regulated health profession, which specifies your disability and/or restrictions.
  • Use your UOIT email account for communication with our staff and your faculty. This is for your own safety and privacy.
