New System - Info for Students

Posted on Monday, May 8th, 2023

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.

Learning How

We have created some resources to help you learn the new system. You can choose from a series of short videos, Power Point slides, and browsing key messages.

Getting Help

We will be offering a series of drop-in sessions where you can ask questions and get a quick tour of the system. Sessions are daily at 2 PM on Microsoft Teams through May 18 (excluding the weekend). More sessions may be added as needed.

Important: Tests & Exams

If you use the SAS Exam Centre, please remember that all test and exam bookings must be submitted at least 10 BUSINESS DAYS ahead of when you intend to write.

In addition, the last day any bookings can be received is the first business day in November, March or July as appropriate for the semester.
