The Accessible Learning Centre assists students with their academic needs such as accommodated examinations, assistive technology and alternate-format course materials. The Centre provides contacts for tutoring, note-taking and support services within Laurier and the community at large. Disabilities supported include (but are not limited to) mobility, learning, medical, psychiatric/psychological, chronic pain, acquired brain injury, hearing and visual.

While documentation of a disability is useful, any student who suspects a disability should contact the Centre.

Students are encouraged to apply for OSAP, since OSAP eligibility is necessary for access to funding through the Bursary for Students with Disabilities.
