Conestoga Student Success


New to Accessible Learning

At any time, if you need an alternate format of forms or information, or if you require assistance with our procedures, please let us know. We are happy to help!

Step 1: Fill out the Intake Form and upload documentation

Completing the entire Accessible Learning Intake Form is a necessary first step. Upload your documentation to minimize delay. 

Step 2: Book your intake appointment

Please monitor your college email for messages from Accessible Learning. We will review your completed form and let you know about next steps, which may include instructions for booking your intake appointment. 

Step 3: Attend your intake appointment

Your intake appointment with an Accessibility Advisor will be an hour. Please come prepared to talk about your strengths, barriers, and any other details that may be specific to your request for academic accommodations, particularly as they relate to your program or course of study. You are welcome to choose who accompanies you to this appointment; however, the most valuable information about your situation will come from you, and speaking with you directly as much as possible will be our priority. 

Please note: for privacy and confidentiality reasons, services will only communicate with you, the student. 

Step 4: Receive your accommodation letter

Your accommodation letter will automatically be delivered to your faculty each term in which you are enrolled in courses, until the expiry date of your accommodations. You will also receive a copy of your accommodation letter. 

Remote learning

Students who are unable to come to campus for an extended period of time and are seeking an academic accommodation for courses that are only offered in person/on campus are encouraged to speak with us BEFORE SEEKING documentation.

These situations tend to have a fair amount of complexity, and when requested for a duration greater than two weeks, can generate additional barriers to academic success and participation.

  • If you are already registered with us, please speak with your Accessibility Advisor.
  • If you haven't been assigned an Accessibility Advisor yet, please contact our intake team.

Note: In Ontario, accommodations at the post-secondary level cannot change required learning outcomes. As such, there may be some essential activities that can only be completed on campus (e.g. hands-on learning).
