Accessibility Services supports you through academic accommodations to achieve academic and co-curricular success.
Change To Renewal Process For Accommodations
For The 2015/2016 School Year for Returning Students
All Accommodations Have Expired As of May 1st 2015
In order to receive accommodations in the summer and fall 2015/winter 2016 terms, you need to reactivate your registration with Accessibility Services.
Starting this spring, some students with current documentation regarding their disability and where no changes in accommodations needs are anticipated by the student and/or disability counsellor will be able to renew their accommodations electronically through an individualized email that will be sent to you.
When updated documentation is required or changes to accommodations need to be reviewed, students will need to contact their counsellor to reactivate their accommodations. The updated documentation form can be used to submit the needed documentation.
Starting the week of May 4th, 2015, students will start receiving emails from Accessibility Services outlining the process of reactivation that is available to them for the upcoming year. Please watch for this email in your University of Toronto email box.
Renew As Soon AS Possible
You can renew your accommodations now even if you are not taking summer courses.
Accessibility Services is open all summer: even if you do not have summer courses you can renew any time during the summer to ensure your accommodations are in place during the fall term. If you have the opportunity to renew during the summer months, we are open to assist you during business hours 9:30 -4:30, Monday to Friday with lunch closure from 12:30 -1:30 p.m. On the last Wednesday of the month, Accessibility Services will open at 10:30 a.m.
If you do not have time this summer, please contact your counsellor as early as possible in the Fall to ensure you have the accommodations you need. You may wish to contact your counsellor to find out whether updated medical documentation is required to reactivate your accommodations as obtaining documentation may take some time.
