What is an academic accommodation?

An academic accommodation focuses on removing barriers that may prevent a student from participating in a program or meeting the objectives of a course or program.

Accommodation does not make coursework easier for students — it creates equal learning opportunities. 

Students are able to request an accommodation at any time during their program but need to be advised that accommodations cannot be applied retroactively.
