Students with disabilities are asked to register with Accessibility Services and allow ample time to ensure that academic accommodations will be available when needed.
Associated services, equipment and funding requests can require several months of lead time.
The process is initiated when a student submits an accommodation request and provides relevant verifying documentation of a disability.
The registration process is in three steps:
To receive an accommodation, you need to establish your eligibility through supporting documentation.
With the exception of a learning disability, documentation must be current (dated within three years), and include a diagnosis, statement of impact and whether the disability is temporary or permanent. Students with a learning disability require a full psycho-educational assessment that’s less than five years old or completed at age 18 or older.

At least one week before your first appointment submit your documentation to Accessibility Services:
Birch Building, room BR284
2055 Purcell Way
North Vancouver, BC V7J 3H5
604 983 7526 | firstname.lastname@example.org
This initial appointment will help us learn about your educational history, previous accommodations and how the learning environment needs to adapt to become accessible to you.
You will learn about how Capilano University can support you with academic accommodations that offer different ways to meet your course requirements. With an Accessibility Services Advisor you will construct a Notification of Accommodation letter to present to instructors.
The Notification of Accommodation maintains confidentiality about the nature of a disability and only informs instructors about authorized accommodations.
Email email@example.com or phone 604 983 7526.
Once you have registered with Accessibility Services, Notification of Accommodation letters will be produced for each of your instructors based on your course registration each semester.
Letters are available the first week of each semester and do not apply retroactively. If you add a course following the registration period, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to have that course instructor included.
The best way to implement your accommodation is to meet instructors early in the semester to provide Notification of Accommodation letters. This way you can directly and privately discuss how your accommodation needs can be met.
Students with a temporary disability, or who would like to discuss changes to their accommodations, should schedule an appointment with their Accessibility Services Advisor.
