Disability Services Information & Procedures

Memo to Faculty

Students registered with Disability Services (DS) must provide the instructor with a Memo to Faculty issued by their Disability Consultant.

The Memo to Faculty lists the accommodations to which the student is entitled. In accordance with the Human Rights Code, instructors are required to allow students the accommodations stipulated; however, it is not the instructor’s responsibility to arrange for all accommodations noted.

Please check the expiry date before accepting a Memo from a student.

Disability Services Procedures:

Please be advised that Humber’s Test Centre (B104) is now responsible for the administration of all testing (including disability-related accommodations) written outside of the classroom.

Note: The Disability Services office will no longer be issuing the pink Test Reservation Form for students with disabilities.

Please note the following:

  • Distribute the Memo to Faculty to the appropriate instructor
  • Book tests at the Disability Services office (B113) two weeks in advance to reserve a space
