I know I have a disability
Step 1: Select the registration package that best describes your category of disability.
Choose the registration package that best describes your disability or the difficulties that you are having with learning. If you have more than one disability, fill out each of the packages that apply to you. Fill out as much of the form as you can. Please note, while it is requested, you are not required to disclose your diagnosed disability (or disabilities). You can discuss your needs further when you meet with your Accessibility Advisor.
Step 2: Documentation
Attach any documentation you have that provides information about the functional impacts of your disability and accommodation needs. Each registration package includes the documentation requirements for the disability you have identified.* Since documentation requirements vary by disability, it’s important to review this information. The Accessibility Advisor will review the documentation with you during your intake appointment and advise you about whether the documentation is sufficient, needs updating or whether additional information is needed. To protect your information, all University staff receiving information follow University policies and guidelines, the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act and other legal requirements.
If you do not have documentation or are unsure about documentation needs you can call or visit our front desk or make an appointment to consult with a Accessibility Advisor.
*Note: For students with ADHD or Learning Disabilities, please read Documentation Requirements for ADHD or Learning Disabilities.

I am a UTM or UTSC student taking courses at St. George. How do I receive accommodations for courses at St. George Campus?
If you are registered with Accessibility Services at the Mississauga or Scarborough Campus, you will need to complete a Transfer of Accommodations Form with your Accessibility Advisor at your home campus. Your Accessibility Advisor will fax this form to our office.
To register for accommodations at the St. George campus contact our front desk. A meeting will be scheduled for you to meet with a Accessibility Advisor who will explain how accommodations are provided here. Procedures and deadlines to receive accommodations may be different from those at your home campus, so you should contact us before or as soon as you start attending courses here. At peak times (August to October and January) you may experience a short waiting period for your first appointment.
Registering as soon as you are accepted to the University or before classes begin is best, but you can register with Accessibility Services at any time during the year and during any year of your studies!
Accessibility Services supports all registered students on the St. George Campus from Academic Bridging to Graduate students in all faculties and programs.
