Student Academic Accommodation Guidelines

The University of Waterloo is committed to upholding the rights of persons with disabilities and creating accessible and inclusive learning environments for all. In order to do so, many are seeking guidance on how best to support students with disabilities and offer accommodations that maintain academic standards and integrity. Sometimes, individuals may be uncertain about their role in the accommodation process or are unclear on how to resolve an accommodation dispute should it arise.

This document provides guidance on roles and responsibilities in the accommodation process for students, course instructors/faculty membersand staff within the framework of Provincial legislation and the University of Waterloo’s existing principles and policies.
