Students with a Learning Disability

The Ministry of Advanced Education has deemed that students with a learning disability must provide a psycho-educational assessment that is no more than 5 years old. This assessment must be done by a registered psychologist or a certified school psychologist in the Province of British Columbia. Only the standard of a learning disability that is listed in the DSM-IV is considered acceptable and accommodatable. This is often a key consideration for incoming students with learning disabilities entering post-secondary education in British Columbia for the first time as the standard of recognition of a learning disability is different from the K-12 system and the post-secondary level. Please contact a Disability Advisor for more information on the documentation requirements for a student with a learning disability.

If appropriate documentation is not available, the Disability Resource Centre may give accommodation for one semester only, pending receipt of suitable documents

Students are reminded to book your quizzes and midterms with the Disability Resource Centre at least one week in advance of the scheduled writing date. For final exams, the deadline for submitting your booking request would be November 26, 2014 due to the high volume of bookings requested for finals.
