Academic Accommodations

Factors that are considered when determining appropriate and reasonable accommodations are:

  • Documentation and recommendations from specialists who are qualified to diagnose the disability
  • Historical information about previous accommodations
  • Need as reported by the student
  • Course and program requirements

TWU’s Centre for Accessible Learning works on a model of self-advocacy. Students with disabilities are not required to register with the Centre for Accessible Learning. In respecting student choice, we understand that students who do not self-identify have elected not to pursue academic accommodations.


Documentation about student disabilities is confidential. Information about a student’s disability is only released to other TWU staff or faculty employees on a need-to-know basis, in accordance with TWU’s Privacy Policy, governed by the Registrar’s Office.
