Academic Accommodation for Graduate Students with Disabilities

Laurier encourages applications from students with disabilities. Students with disabilities have successfully completed a wide variety of programmes at Laurier and have made significant academic contributions to this University. Laurier will, upon request, provide admission information to applicants in alternate forms (Braille, audio tapes, etc.) within a reasonable time frame. In accordance with general admission procedures, Laurier will accept academically qualified candidates for admission to graduate programs by examining each applicant's academic record and the impact of any extenuating circumstances. Applicants are expected, where possible, to disclose their disability and any need for accommodation in the application process, and to seek assistance in selecting their courses/programmes from The Centre for Accessible Learning and their prospective department or Faculty.
