Registration Workshops

If you are having your first one-on-one appointment with your SAS advisor, we ask that you participate in a 30 minute registration workshop first. Usually students participate in the registration workshop at 9 AM for a morning appointment, or 1 PM for an afternoon appointment.

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.

Thinking about coming to U of G?

Do you experience a disability that might affect how you participate in the learning environment on campus?  Student Accessibility Services (SAS) works with students who have all types of conditions - mental health, learning disabilities, medical conditions, mobility/dexterity, vision, hearing and more.

Career Advising at SAS

Given the interest among SAS students last year, we are continuing to have Career Services available at the SAS Main Office on Tuesdays from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm.  No appointment needed.  Examples of support include:

Exam Booking is now done through AO

Accessibility Online is our new system for exam bookings.  There are fewer steps and it should be easier to use.  For help with how to book an exam, after you login, click on "Exam Help" in the black toolbar.

This new system gives us the flexibility to make improvements over time.  We have received lots of feedback in recent years and we are looking forward to continuing to simplify things while making it easier to find the information you are seeking.

Register Now for "Intro to SAS"

This is a program that allows students who are new to the University of Guelph and who have a disability to meet SAS staff members and begin the transition process. We'll help orient you to SAS programs and services, university supports, and discuss the transition to university as a student with a disability. This will include a break out session for parents and students.
