Equitable access to education for TRU students
We provide academic accommodations and services to all eligible TRU students, both on campus and Open Learning. We facilitate equal access to educational opportunities by reducing physical, attitudinal and systemic barriers.
Academic accommodations and services are tailored to a student's needs based on documentation provided by an approved and qualified health care professional, and the extent of the functional impact of the disability. Services and accommodations may include, but are not limited to the following:
Accommodated tests and exams
Alternative format text material
Peer note taking
Sign language interpreting
Access to technical aids and adaptive equipment
Access to assistive technology
Access to a learning specialist
Assistance with applying for disability related financial aid
Mobility and physical access assistance
Referral to other TRU services and community resources
Accommodations will be provided based on the functional impacts of the disability as outlined by the appropriate medical professional. This will be determined by an Accessibility Services Advisor and, when necessary, in consultation with the Director, Student Access and Academic Supports. The appropriateness and reasonableness of the recommendations will be reviewed in relation to the university’s academic standards and the essential requirements of the course and/or program.
It is a student's responsibility to make contact with Accessibility Services and meet with an accessibility services advisor in order to access services. We must be informed of your needs each academic term.
Persons Requiring Assistance Program
This optional program ensures anyone — employees, students, visitors and contractors — can safely evacuate with confidence by creating and regularly reviewing a personal evacuation plan.
