Accessibility & Accommodations

The College Counsellor and Accessibility Coordinator work collaboratively with students and faculty to ensure implementation of proper accommodations that provide necessary support, preserve academic integrity, and safeguard student privacy. New students requiring accessibility services should identify their needs to the College Counsellor upon confirmation of admission. Early intervention is critical in providing a barrier-free learning environment and supporting student success.
