The staff and faculty at Booth University College are dedicated to making every reasonable effort to help our students succeed in their studies. We will endeavour to ensure we provide an accessible learning and working environment for all students with documented disabilities, and barring undue hardship for the institution, we will provide supports and services to help ensure they can thrive and succeed at Booth UC.

IF YOU HAVE A DISABILITY OR THINK YOU MIGHT HAVE ONE:
- INFORM US OF YOUR DISABILITY: You are encouraged to declare the nature of your disability when you apply for admission to Booth University College. You are guaranteed confidentiality and impartiality regarding your application. If your disability is/was not declared at the time of application, we strongly urge you to declare your disability within the first two weeks of classes to the Dean of Students if you wish to be considered for additional supports in a timely fashion.
- PROVIDE DOCUMENTATION: Upon acceptance to Booth University College, please provide the Dean of Students with the appropriate documentation to complete a needs assessment. Documentation of a disability must be within the last three years.
- MEET WITH THE DEAN OF STUDENTS TO DEVELOP A PLAN: Once this documentation is provided, the Dean of Students will meet with you to further discuss the learning resources available and classroom needs, develop an accommodation plan for exams, and determine what resources Booth University College can provide to assist you.
Booth University College’s Dean of Students will inform teaching faculty, department heads and the Academic Dean about any special arrangements that might be necessary to accommodate your needs. This will be done in a way that does not compromise the integrity of the course material and in a way that promotes equity. The Dean of Students will also make the Registrar aware of any alterations to the official exam schedule that will be necessary to support your situation.
