We recognize that students may have difficulties obtaining disability documentation during the COVID pandemic. More info on our change in process.
QSAS supports more than 2,000 Queen’s students each year who have various types of disabilities and access needs ranging from mild to complex. Professional staff connect directly with each student to develop individualized accommodation plans and offer the following supports and services:
- Initial assessments to determine eligibility for services and academic accommodations
- START-UP first-year transition program for students with disabilities
- Referrals to on- and off-campus services and supports
- Coaching in self-advocacy to promote autonomy and independence
- Support related to one's disability, self-concept, disclosure, and self-advocacy
- Advice, education, and awareness training for students, faculty, and staff on disability, accessibility, and accommodation matters
Queen's University is committed to supporting students with disabilities as they pursue their academic goals during COVID-19. QSAS continues to work closely with students and their instructors in meeting current and emerging needs in academics delivered in an adjusted format.
Students with disabilities sometimes require written verification confirming they are, or have been, accommodated at Queen’s University. More Info
