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.

Thinking about coming to U of G?

Do you experience a disability that might affect how you participate in the learning environment on campus?  Student Accessibility Services (SAS) works with students who have all types of conditions - mental health, learning disabilities, medical conditions, mobility/dexterity, vision, hearing and more.

COVID-19 Information from SAS

We understand that the situation with COVID-19 is worrisome and want to assure you that the University is committed to protecting everyone’s health and safety while the end of the semester draws near.

If you are emailing your SAS Advisor, please watch for an automatic reply and read the information carefully for details about how to obtain timely assistance.

At this time, the SAS Exam Centre  is closed and will not be invigilating exams until the University resumes normal business operations.

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 is now done through AO

Accessibility Online is our new system for exam bookings.  There are fewer steps and it should be easier to use.  For help with how to book an exam, after you login, click on "Exam Help" in the black toolbar.

This new system gives us the flexibility to make improvements over time.  We have received lots of feedback in recent years and we are looking forward to continuing to simplify things while making it easier to find the information you are seeking.

Register Now for "Intro to SAS"

This is a program that allows students who are new to the University of Guelph and who have a disability to meet SAS staff members and begin the transition process. We'll help orient you to SAS programs and services, university supports, and discuss the transition to university as a student with a disability. This will include a break out session for parents and students.
