***Important Message to Students Registered With the Glendon Accessibility Services***

  • For online exams/tests, your professors/course instructors will continue to grant your test/exam accommodations (e.g., extra time). Make sure that your professors/course instructors have a copy of your LOA and that they are aware of your text/exam accommodations. 
  • If you require accommodations for in-person exams/tests (e.g., extra time), you will need to register/schedule your exams/tests with the Alternate Exams/Tests Centre and complete your exams at the Centre. Find more information here. Please be sure to still share a copy of your LOA with your in-person professors/course instructors as well; your LOA lists not only your test/exam accommodations, but also your classroom accommodations as well as other accommodations. 

If you have any questions or preoccupations, please contact : counselling@glendon.yorku.ca

***New pathway for Letter of Accommodation (LOA) Requests***

If you are a returning student registered with the Glendon Accessibility Services as having a disability and wish to renew your accommodations, you must request a new Letter of Accommodation (LOA). LOA’s need to be requested every academic year. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that they request a new LOA every year and share it with their professors/course instructors every semester (through the portal).

This year, York has a new pathway for students registered with the Glendon Accessibility Services to request their Letters of Accommodation (LOA’s). York will be launching a new LOA Portal on September 1st, 2021. Through this portal, students will be able to request their LOA and send it to all of their professors.  Please check the following page on September 1st, 2021 to access the LOA Portal :
