Accommodation Plan

Your accommodation plan is an individualized support plan based on your needs and designed to help you meet the requirements of your academic program. 

Accommodations can help you with:

  • Note-Taking
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Test-Taking
  • any other tasks related to your learning outcomes

Setting Up or Changing Your Accommodation Plan

Your accommodation plan is based on the documentation you provide and the needs you report.  After you register with a Readiness Advisor, you will be asked to complete the Accessibility Intake Form and book an Accessibility Assessment appointment. 

To set up or modify your existing accommodation plan, you need to meet with an Accessibility Service provider.

Book an appointment with Accessibility Services online, call 780-644-6130, or visit the Student Services Reception Desk.

Assistive Technology Training

If your accommodation plan includes audio, lecture recording, voice typing, screenreaders, or anything else software or app-based, the Assistive Technology Team is here to guide you through installing and learning your programs.
