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). 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. The process is now closed for 2018.
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 feel that your undergraduate grades do not reflect your potential as the result of a disability, please contact us to discuss your situation. Note that if you have been receiving academic accommodations relating to your disability, usually this should be sufficient to meet the established academic standards. However, we understand that there may have been extenuating circumstances and welcome the opportunity to discuss them with you.
