The Accessible Learning Centre (ALC) recognizes that academic requirements differ at the graduate level. For example, there can be more independent research, thesis development and writing, and fieldwork, which may require different or more individualized accommodations as well as a discussion of program and placement requirements. The ALC has designated a disability consultant to meet with graduate students, and to liaise with their department and the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies regarding accommodations.
New graduate students are encouraged to contact the ALC as soon as possible to begin the registration and accommodation planning process. If you are in a graduate program with a practicum component, we urge you to discuss your accommodation needs and the essential requirements of the practicum with both the practicum coordinator and disability consultant as early as possible upon acceptance to your program.
The intake process for graduate students is the same as for undergraduate students.
