Video Resources to Use Student Portal

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.

How are things going? Have you found it easy to navigate the resources around you? What are some things that are very new for you this semester?


You are not alone if you’re still looking for ways to turn your semester around and end on a high note.
