Plan Your Semester W23

We invite you to attend the Plan Your Semester Workshop offered through Student Accessibility Services! During this workshop, you will learn how to access your course due dates and test dates, fill out your calendar or planner with all the important dates for the semester, and learn tips and tricks for planning and success.

When there's snow and ice on campus

When there is active winter precipitation, Physical Resources makes a best effort to keep all walkways clear starting with the priority areas. At the same time, there are some limits to how quickly they can work. We also know that there are sometimes trouble spots where walkways (maintained by U of G) cross city streets (maintained by the City of Guelph). If a snow plough goes by after a walkway has been cleared, a snowbank may temporarily create a barrier. The university makes a best effort to monitor these spots and respond as quickly as possible.

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 March 1st.

Exam Booking Deadline

Check to ensure all of your tests and exams are booked!

If you need the SAS Exam Centre this semester, then you need to submit your booking by the end of the day onTuesday, November 1. 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 is the same.

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.

Impact of System Outage on SAS

Update for September 20, 2022: the automated quiz extension tool is working normally again. We have compete course information about each student. We have full access to our files and records. At this point, the SAS team is working to catch up after delays and slowed productivity last week due to the outages. Some information sharing with other departments is slower than usual as we have had to revert to using paper for some tasks.

More Ways to Get Help

Swathy and Quynn are our new Accessibility Assistants and they're here to help make things work. They can help with practical things like filling out forms, booking to use the exam centre, online quizzes and tests, and more!

Your SAS Advisor will still help you figure out accommodations.

E-mail for information about Quynn and Swathy's drop-in hours, short booked appointments, and online help. They are great for troubleshooting problems and questions.
