The Impact of Supports for Students with Mental Health Conditions

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.

Help Improve Work-integrated Learning

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.

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