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.

System Restored

Accommodate, our system for handling exam bookings, appointments and our new student intake form is back online.  We apologize for any inconvenience the temporary outage may have caused.

More Exam Booking Workshops

Back by popular demand! We have more workshops to help you with using the new exam booking system.  If you think this would be helpful, please drop-in at a time and location that works for your schedule.  If you can email Stefanie (sferrant@uoguelph.ca) ahead of time, it would be helpful for knowing how many people to expect.

The Impact of Supports for Students with Mental Health Conditions

If you are registered with SAS and experience a mental health disability, you are invited to participate in a research study conducted by Dr. Margaret Lumley, Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology and graduate student Sarah-Lynn Boyle from the Department of Psychology at the University of Guelph.

Help Improve Work-integrated Learning

Your participation in this quick 10-minute anonymous survey can help us make recommendations to better support students with diverse needs to participate and persist in the workforce. You don’t need to have any experience with work-integrated learning to contribute to this groundbreaking research.

Please note: If you are registered with both Student Accessibility Services (SAS) and Co-operative Education, you will be invited to complete two different surveys related to work-integrated learning.

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.

Important Note about Exam Bookings

When booking a test or exam, students are required to book to start writing at the same time and on the same date as the class.  If you require an alternate date or time as an accommodation, you must provide written confirmation that the instructor has approved the alternate scheduling to the Exam Centre.  This must be provided before the booking deadline, which is 7 days before the test or exam, and not later than the 40th Class Day (March 8, 2019).

Job Opportunities for Students with Disabilities

New Online Platform: Exams & More

We are about to launch our new online platform for exam booking. The system is called Accommodate, and it will allow us to offer a whole lot of new online services including booking appointments with your SAS Advisor, reviewing your accommodations, uploading new documentation to support your disability.  In time, we will also introduce new features like signing up for workshops and events.
