Registering with the Accessible Learning Centre
If you’re in need of academic support services from the Accessible Learning Centre (ALC) for classroom or examination accommodation, you are required to self-identify and provide current documentation from a registered healthcare professional (e.g. physician, psychologist or psychiatrist).
You can begin the intake process as soon as you accept an offer of admission to Laurier. It is in your best interest to begin the intake process as soon as possible.
- Complete and send in the Self-Identification Form (Word document or PDF) to the ALC along with current supporting documentation. A medical form is available for your convenience.
- Attend a meeting with your disability consultant to discuss your learning needs and review your documentation.
If you have provided documentation that needs to be updated (e.g. an assessment that is more than 3 years old, an IPRC from high school, etc.), we will discuss documentation requirements, possible financial support and the referral process.
Students who provide out-of-date documentation may be eligible for interim accommodations (90 days) during the re-assessment process.
All returning sudents are required to complete the Express Registration Form at web.wlu.ca/alconline. The purpose of this form is to update all contact information and complete the yearly consent to renew accommodations for the current academic year. This does not negate the need to meet with the disability consultant if it is necessary. An appointment may be requested by the consultant or student if there is a specific need (e.g. to review outstanding documentation, health status or learning needs have changed, to request a bursary).
Participating in express registration allows you to access your needed accommodations and ensures a strong beginning to the term.
