Connect with ARS

Self Identification Form and Documentation Upload - please note that while ARS attempts to process accommodation requests as quickly as possible, the process may take up to 14 days from the receipt of all necessary documentation and students seeking to connect with ARS in respect of accommodations should plan accordingly. Where documentation is missing or insufficient or when the Accommodations and Modifications Committee might have questions about the accommodations sought or need to consult with documentation providers, instructors, program staff etc, this process may take longer.

If you have any questions or concerns about the Registration process please refer to our policies or contact us.

  • This form is for use by program applicants, incoming or current students who have a diagnosed and documented disability and who wish to request accommodations.

  • Accommodations cannot be provided retroactively. 

  • In order for ARS to consider requests for reasonable accommodations including academic, housing and dining accommodations, students must submit the documentation discussed, within the applicable section of the Policy, to ARS at least 14 calendar days prior to the start of the course or the event or time for which the student is seeking accommodations. Please note, returning students with agreed accommodations do not need to submit a Self-ID form for accommodations for any subsequent semesters but must issue notifications to their instructors.

  • Similarly, applicants needing accommodations for a selection process or event for admission to an academic program at the University must submit the documentation discussed within this section of the Policy to ARS at least 14 calendar days prior to the need for accommodations.

  • Under certain circumstances ARS may be able to identify provisional accommodations pending receipt of further supportive documentation; upon receipt of appropriate documentation ARS will make a final determination.

  • Students seeking accommodations in relation to an assistantship or paid position are advised that such a determination is made by the Equal Opportunities and Compliance Office.
