Accessible Learning Services

Faculty can negotiate accommodations with student if they feel they are reasonable and appropriate. Students may register with Accessible Learning Services if academic accommodations are requested that are disability-related. Students have a choice to provide an Accommodation Letter to Faculty directly to have it sent on their behalf by gh.accommodations@guelphhumber.ca.

The accommodation 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 Ontario Human Rights Code, faculty are required to provide the accommodations stipulated; however, it is not the faculty’s responsibility to arrange for all accommodations noted. Faculty are required to participate in the accommodation process and encouraged to contact the Consultant listed on the Accommodation Letter if they have questions or concerns.

Please note:

  1. Both temporary and permanent disabilities will be accommodated
  2. Students are not required to reveal private medical information to faculty or teaching assistants.
  3. Students do not need to disclose a diagnosis.
  4. Students do not need to seek accommodations directly from faculty or teaching assistants.
