SIF-D for High School Applicants

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.

The deadline for submitting the SIF-D is May 1.

New Software Platform

SAS has already started using our new software platform in the background. Starting in May 2023, it will be more noticeable to students and faculty because this is when we will stop using Accessibility Online (AO). For students, the new system includes:

Mid-Semester Check-in with Peer Helpers

Student Accessibility Services (SAS) is pleased to inform you that our SAS Student Peer Helpers will be hosting Mid-Semester Check-in sessions in the coming days. These will be workshop style sessions where you can meet fellow students registered with SAS and hear tips and tricks from the Peer Helpers on things like managing your time and finishing the semester on a strong note!

The dates, times and locations are as follows:

Bloom Scholarship Program

The Bloom Scholarship Program offered by Deloitte focuses on addressing systemic barriers and inequities. It aims to support and empower students from underrepresented groups in in Deloitte's industry while providing them with the opportunity to develop their potential and start a flourishing career in an award-winning culture.

Plan Your Semester W23

We invite you to attend the Plan Your Semester Workshop offered through Student Accessibility Services! During this workshop, you will learn how to access your course due dates and test dates, fill out your calendar or planner with all the important dates for the semester, and learn tips and tricks for planning and success.

When there's snow and ice on campus

When there is active winter precipitation, Physical Resources makes a best effort to keep all walkways clear starting with the priority areas. At the same time, there are some limits to how quickly they can work. We also know that there are sometimes trouble spots where walkways (maintained by U of G) cross city streets (maintained by the City of Guelph). If a snow plough goes by after a walkway has been cleared, a snowbank may temporarily create a barrier. The university makes a best effort to monitor these spots and respond as quickly as possible.

Exam Booking Deadline

Check to ensure all of your tests and exams are booked!

If you need the SAS Exam Centre this semester, then you need to submit your booking by the end of the day onTuesday, November 1. Similarly, if you need to make a change to an exam you've already booked (e.g. because the format has changed, or your accommodations have changed), the deadline is the same.

Don't forget: if you drop a course or end up deferring an exam, you need to cancel your booking to avoid a $20 no-show fee.
