***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 with the Alternate Exams/Tests Centre and complete your exams/tests 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. 

***New pathway for Letter of Accommodations 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 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 again on September 1st, 2021 to access the LOA Portal:

REGISTERING WITH GLENDON ACCESSIBILITY SERVICES

To register with Glendon 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.

STEP 2

  • 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.
