Students need to registered with Accessible Learning Services if accommodations are requested. Students do not provide a Letter to Faculty.
Once a student has provided the appropriate information, Accessible Learning Services will issue an accommodation letter to the Instructor. Note: the accommodations letter will not disclose the nature of the disability, only the accommodations required by the student.
The Accommodation Letter 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.
- Accommodations may be granted on an interim basis while appropriate medical documentation is forthcoming
- Both temporary and permanent mental health disabilities will be accommodated
- Retroactive accommodations will be considered through Academic Consideration (please see: https://www.guelphhumber.ca/advising/consideration)
- Students are not required to reveal private medical information to instructors, professors or teaching assistants
