Nervous about returning to campus?

We've heard from a number of students who are feeling apprehensive about returning to campus in the fall, which is understandable given that we've all spent the last year and a half learning and working from home. Sometimes these concerns are disability-related, in which case please speak with your SAS advisor. Below are some tips to think about if your concerns are not disability-related, or if you're simply looking for additional options to consider.

New to SAS? Services are Available

SAS continues to be available to students with disabilities and to collaborate with our campus partners. Although we are primarily working remotely, we are responding to general inquiries, the front desk in the JT Powell Building is staffed during regular business hours, and SAS advisors are still meeting with students. Appointments are generally conducted via Microsoft Teams or on the phone.

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 X days before the test or exam, and not later than the 40th Class Day (March 8, 2019).
