How to Register

Applicants and students with a confirmed or suspected disability should contact AL to initiate the academic accommodation process, as soon as possible, following their acceptance of admission. Early registration with AL is strongly encouraged as some academic accommodations take longer to implement than others. AL Advisors work with students to determine appropriate and reasonable academic accommodations based on a review of disability documentation and student self-report.

Students must print out and have their Medical Practitioner fill out the Medical Information Request Form and bring it to your first appointment. 

How do I Register with AL?

You can register with AL in 3 Steps:

  1. Gather your disability-related documentation based on information provided by AL staff or by the AL website. Students are not required to disclose their disability diagnosis to register for services and access accommodations and support. Focus is on functional limitations as identified through documentation from a Register Health Care Professional.
  2. Schedule an intake appointment by contacting AL at any of the campuses listed below;
  3. Attend your intake appointment to have an Accommodation Form (AF) developed outlining testing and/or classroom accommodations. AL also provide support for students who may need to request accommodations for pre-admission testing and Work-Integrated Learning (WIL).

If you have questions about the registration process, please connect with us at your main campus.

Confidentiality:

Sheridan College will respect the privacy of all students concerning self-disclosure in accordance with Accessible Learning confidentiality agreement, College guidelines on access to information, and protection of privacy legislation.
