Academic Accommodations

Are Academic Accommodations for you?

Accommodations at the SRC
If, and only if, you have answered yes to either of these questions, then only UBC's Centre for Accessibility determines your eligibility for academic accommodations in accordance with the university's Policy 73: Academic Accommodations for Students with Disabilities, that is, NOT the SRC, NOT our staff, and NOT your instructor. 

When a student has been deemed by UBC's Centre for Accessibility as eligible for academic accommodations, receives an approved an accommodations letter, and provides a copy to the SRC and his/her instructor(s), the SRC then facilitates disability-related accommodations and programming initiatives designed to remove barriers for students with disabilities and ongoing medical conditions, while following SRC procedures.
