Message to incoming students with a disability

Covid19 has created additional challenges for people with disabilities. If you have applied to TWU here are some of the steps we are taking to make your life easier.

  • We understand that some of you may not be able to update your documentation due to Covid19. For the time being the Centre for Accessible Learning will review any and all documents you have that help identify your disability. For example, we are happy to review IEP’s from your current school with a view to providing temporary academic accommodations when your classes begin. Once the Covid19 crisis is over we would then require updated documentation to allow for ongoing academic accommodations.
  • Though we can’t meet in person, we are happy to meet via zoom to discuss your situation.
  • Many provincial governments are allowing for more flexibility with signatures and are allowing students to sign documents electronically so that student loan and other programs continue to be functional.

If you have any questions or need additional support, please contact the Centre for Accessible Learning at accessibility@twu.ca.

Trinity Western University is committed to the dual goals of providing support designed to remove barriers related to a disability or ongoing medical condition while maintaining integrity in academic standards. 

The Centre for Accessible Learning promotes equitable access to educational programs for students guided by the Human Rights Code (BC) and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedom. If you have a disability or encounter some other barrier to participation at TWU, take a look at possible services and accommodations available to assist students.  Then contact the Director of Accessible Learning where you will be helped to address challenges by use of a self advocacy model.
