Applying for Academic Accommodations: First Year and Upper Years Queen’s Students

Academic accommodations are organized by Queen’s Student Accessibility Services (QSAS) on main campus. You need to register online with QSAS and follow the procedures for obtaining a Letter of Accommodation before arriving at the BISC. Please start this process as early as possible. It is possible to apply for a Letter of Accommodation when you are at the BISC, but the procedure can be delayed because of the need to submit supporting documents from Canadian health professionals. Do not send medical or supporting documentation to the BISC. Upper Years Students should check their documentation to ensure their Letter of Accommodation is up to date. When you have your Letter of Accommodation please submit it to the Student Portal . You can also send your letter directly to the Student Success and Learning Development Advisor. Please do not send letters directly to your instructors.

Applying for Academic Accommodations: Upper Years and Non-Queen’s Students

If you are a non-Queen’s student requiring academic accommodation, you need to register with QSAS. Be prepared to submit any documentation (such as a Letter of Accommodation or equivalent document) from your home institution.

How Accommodations Work

The Student Success and Learning Development Advisor will contact you at the beginning of the term to ensure that you understand your Letter of Accommodation and advise how to make use of accommodations while at the BISC. The Advisor will send your Letter of Accommodation to your individual instructors and will help you with any issues that arise in implementing the accommodations. Final exams are arranged by the Student Success and Learning Advisor and the Administration Office. For tests and mid-term exams you need to speak to your instructor at least seven days in advance of the test to arrange accommodations.
