Some key differences students entering post-secondary should be aware of are:
- Students with disabilities need to self-identify to the Access Resource Centre (ARC) if they wish to receive disability-related services.
- Students are required to discuss accommodations with Instructors; however, they are not required to disclose their disability to Instructors.
- Students are expected to be capable of independent learning and pursue their studies with the same diligence required of all students.
- Accommodations and services available in higher education are meant to provide students with disabilities with reasonable access to post-secondary education.
- While the University will strive to provide reasonable and appropriate accommodations, students will be responsible for meeting essential course and program requirements.
