What you need to know

To access academic accommodations, you must register with our office by completing this form. Students must also provide recent documentation from a healthcare professional which includes your diagnosis, the effects it has on your learning, and recommended accommodations. As this documentation should be no more than 1-5 years old (documentation requirements), you may wish to take steps to update your documentation before you arrive.

Students with permanent disabilities may be eligible to access the Canada Student Grant for Services and Equipment for Students with Permanent Disabilities to pay for services such as tutors or note-takers, and equipment such as a computer or assistive technology. To learn about the eligibility criteria and application process, please contact your province or territory’s student financial assistance office.  This is a wonderful opportunity to take advantage of before you arrive!

We wish to make your experience at the Mount as positive, fulfilling, and successful as possible; therefore, we place a strong emphasis on self-advocacy.
