The Committee will meet at least once per academic term.  The Committee will:

  • Provide feedback and input on QSAS, Student Wellness Services and institutional administrative policies and procedures related to academic accommodations, deferrals and short term accommodations;
  • Share best practices with respect to deferrals and short term accommodation requests;
  • Advise QSAS and Student Wellness Services staff on matters related to essential academic requirements and standards, procedures and processes as they relate to the accommodation process;
