In addition to the information below, you may also be interested in reviewing our transition planner.
Applying Directly from High School
If you feel that your disability has adversely affected your grades, and that you may be close to the admission cutoffs, please fill out the Supplemental Information Form for Students with Disabilities (SIF-D), which will be available in November. SAS will retain this information and will use it collaboratively with Admission Services if needed. Note that if you receive an offer of admission, you will still need to register with SAS as soon as possible and this is a separate process.
SIF-D forms must be submitted by May 1.
Mature and Transfer Students
If you are applying to the University as a transfer student, or as a mature student, and you experience a disability that you feel has affected your qualifications, please contact Admission Services about providing supplementary information. In these circumstances, a letter from you with additional information may be helpful. If you have more disability-related questions or concerns, Student Accessibility Services would be pleased to discuss them with you.
If you are admitted to a graduate program and experience a disability, we would be happy to have you register with our office. SAS does support academic accommodation for students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. However, the grade requirements for admission to graduate programs cannot be adjusted as an accommodation. If you do not meet the minimum grades required, you may wish to consider taking some courses to upgrade your academic standing. Please consult with Graduate & Postdoctoral Studies for more information.
