New System - Info for Students

SAS is moving to a new software platform that replaces Accessibility Online (AO). For students, the new system includes:

  • A tool to submit new or updated documentation
  • Online appointment requests
  • A change to the way you request your accommodations each semester
  • A new web interface for booking to use the SAS exam centre
  • A variety of other tools to help improve communication.

Eventually, we'll move our volunteer notetaking services to the new system, but not yet.

New System - Info for Faculty

We have sent an email to instructors for the fall 2023 semester with access to our SharePoint site. This includes tutorials in a variety of formats and a link to access the new Faculty Portal.

You might be prompted to login as SharePoint is a part of Microsoft 365. This content is only available to instructors. If you have difficulty accessing it, please let us know
