Access and Diversity

Access and Diversity works with the University to create an inclusive living and learning environment in which all students can thrive.

Students registering for exam accommodations for the first time or changing exam accommodations for Term One W2016 need to contact us prior to Thursday, November 10.  After that date, we will still continue to see students who are seeking academic concessions for disability-related reasons or who are registering for accommodations for the next term.

About Access and Diversity
