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.

Exam Booking Deadline

If you need the SAS Exam Centre for any midterms or final exams this semester, you need to submit your booking by this Friday.  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 to do so is this Friday too.

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.
