If you are a student who identifies with having a disability, you may be curious about how to access your academic accommodations. We got you!

At Humber, Accessible Learning Services (ALS) works with students and staff to ensure that learners have what they need to be successful by providing a wide range of supports, including academic accommodations, assistive technology training, and referral to on-campus and community services. Here’s how to get started:

Step 1: Schedule an Appointment with ALS

Please contact us as soon as you have been accepted into a program at Humber or Guelph-Humber, or if you are already in a program and you are experiencing disability related barriers to learning.

You may contact Accessible Learning Services (ALS) in person, by phone, or email to book an appointment to meet with a member of our team who will explain our services and the resources available.

Step 2: Attend Your Appointment with ALS

We encourage you to bring your disability-related documentation to your first appointment. Documentation requirements vary depending on the nature of the disability. For specific information, please review the Disability Documentation Requirements.

At this appointment you will discuss your accommodation needs and learn about resources available to support your learning. You may find it helpful to prepare in advance any questions you would like to ask. If you need to re-schedule, please contact us.

Also it is important to know that your Accommodation Letter is not automatically renewed each semester. For more information about renewing your accommodations, visit How to Renew Or View Your Accommodations Letter.

If you are a new student looking for more information on services available to you, check out Accessible Learning Services Easy Start Transition Program, a service to assist students with disabilities in transitioning to post-secondary studies at Humber College and the University of Guelph-Humber.
