REGISTERING WITH ACCESSIBILITY SERVICES
To register with Accessibility Services, a student must provide documentation confirming the presence of a disability, the functional limitations and whether the disability is permanent or temporary.
Students are advised to register with Student Accessibility Services prior to the start of their studies at York. Students can continue to register with our office throughout the academic term, however, access to academic accommodations such as accommodated tests and exams might be limited and not always available.
Registration with Glendon Accessibility Services will not be identified on official university records, academic transcripts or graduation documentation.
Print or download the PDF version of the required medical or psychological documentation form. This form must be filled out by a qualified medical professional (ie. registered psychologist, treating family doctor, specialized health professional).
- Complete the Glendon Accessibility Registration Form and attach your required medical or psychological documentation directly to the questionnaire. (You can use an app such as “CamScanner” to convert pictures taken with a phone.).Your registration form and documentation will be directly sent to the AWC Centre.
- Once we have received your registration form and required documentation, you will be contacted within 3 to 4 business days to schedule your intake appointment. Please note that during certain periods of the year, the wait time for an appointment can be up to 2 to 3 weeks.
- The initial appointment will take about two (2) hours, at which time you will discuss academic accommodations and sign any necessary paperwork.
Please arrive 15 minutes in advance to begin the intake process.
- Based on the initial appointment, students will receive accommodations specific to their needs. Where appropriate, students may be referred to other service providers.
