Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

About the Accessible Learning Centre

The Accessible Learning Centre (ALC) is committed to providing students with temporary or permanent disabilities any access or accommodations they may need to participate in equal opportunities. We highly encourage you to communicate with your student to learn about how the ALC can give them the support they need.

Some services that the ALC provides include:

  • examination accommodation
  • note-taking
  • alternate-format course materials such as electronic text (e-text), Braille or captioned video
  • peer support and learning strategies

Our ALC staff work collaboratively with students to determine appropriate accommodations. Staff and students work in conjunction with faculty, community and campus resources to develop and implement an individualized plan where appropriate.

There are no costs to students registering with the ALC. At times, there may be a cost associated with certain accommodations (e.g. purchasing technology for home use, tutoring, updated documentation, etc.). Students can discuss potential funding options with their disability consultant.

Transition Tips for Families

Families provide an important element of stability at a time when many things are in a state of change for students, and we welcome the opportunity to provide you with helpful information to support the transition process. We ask for your patience in understanding that the ALC staff is obligated to treat students’ personal information as private and confidential.
