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.
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.

SAS is moving to the J.T. Powell Building at the end of the month. Our office will be closed for the move on Friday, April 27 and Monday, April 29. We will reopen in our new location on Tuesday, April 30, 2019.
The University has extended to the drop deadline to March 22 - that's the last day to drop a course. However, the deadline for booking with the SAS Exam Centre remains the same. Friday, March 8 is the last day any tests or exams can be booked this semester.
Back by popular demand! We have more workshops to help you with using the new exam booking system. If you think this would be helpful, please drop-in at a time and location that works for your schedule. If you can email Stefanie (firstname.lastname@example.org) ahead of time, it would be helpful for knowing how many people to expect.

If you are registered with SAS and experience a mental health disability, you are invited to participate in a research study conducted by Dr. Margaret Lumley, Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology and graduate student Sarah-Lynn Boyle from the Department of Psychology at the University of Guelph.
Your participation in this quick 10-minute anonymous survey can help us make recommendations to better support students with diverse needs to participate and persist in the workforce. You don’t need to have any experience with work-integrated learning to contribute to this groundbreaking research.
Please note: If you are registered with both Student Accessibility Services (SAS) and Co-operative Education, you will be invited to complete two different surveys related to work-integrated learning.
