Student Accessibility Services is starting their brand new Peer Mentor Program! How it works is that students from different faculties will be available to meet with you one-on-one to answer any questions you may have about accessibility on campus and various programs offered by Student Accessibility Services.
All of the mentors have some worthwhile insight as well as experience of being registered with Student Accessibility Services which can help you onto a pathway to success. The mentors will be available every day in 520 UMSU University Centre at select times (see below) to maximize convenience. It’s becoming increasingly hard to navigate your way through all the programs and services available on and off campus, we can help!
Mentors will be available, excluding holidays:
Directions: Fifth floor of UMSU University Centre showing the route to take to arrive at room 520. From the elevators, turn right, then make a subsequent right to the end of the hallway and then turn right entering 520 UMSU University Centre (Student Accessibility Services).
Did you know that if you are taking any classes this Spring/Summer students are required to re-activate at the beginning of each term in order to receive accommodations. To re-activate, you can just email the SAS General Office, email@example.com, or your Accessibility Advisor, notifying them that you will be taking classes. If you do not re-activate, we have no way of knowing that you are taking courses and may not be able to have your accommodations in place.
If you require test or exam accommodations for Spring/Summer, the SAS online system requires at least 7 days (1 week) advance notice to accept the booking. You will receive a confirmation email once the booking has been processed. If you do not receive this email, the exam is not booked and SAS has not reserved space. Please keep your confirmation email until the exam date has passed in case of any technical difficulties. Also, the SAS online system allows you to check any booked tests/exams to confirm your schedule. SAS advises that you book your tests/exams as soon as you receive notice, i.e. upon receipt of your class syllabus.
The Service Disruptions webpage shares information about disruptions on our campuses that could affect users of all abilities to access services. Building, construction, roadway and transit notifications are listed.
Student Accessibility Services is here to support you and provide reasonable accommodations based on your documented disability. Did you know that if you are already registered with Student Accessibility Services, you have to reactive your account every term? This is done by contacting your Accessibility Advisor/Specialist directly, emailing reception at firstname.lastname@example.org, or calling us at 204-474-7423.
