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.

Group Registration for Some Returning Students

We are offering a new "group" SAS registration option for returning students this Fall semester.  This is specifically for students who have been registered with SAS in a previous semester and whose Advisor is: Wendy, Melissa, Susan, Laura or Patty.  

This option is available on September 13th and 20th at 5pm and again at 6pm.  This 30 minute session will include approval of existing accommodations, information about new resources, and updates about changes in SAS processes.

Note Taking Office: Fall 2017

To volunteer or to request notes, please use the SAS Portal.  This service helps individuals who experience barriers to taking their own notes, either because of a disability related to information processing, or because of a dexterity impairment.  It is not a good substitute for going to class, as engaging with the presentation of course material is an important learning strategy.
