Request(s) for academic accommodation

"Dalhousie University recognizes the diversity of its students and is committed to providing a learning environment and community in which students are able to participate without discrimination on grounds prohibited by the Nova Scotia Human Rights Act. In particular, the University is committed to facilitating students' access to the University's academic programs, activities, facilities and services." – Accommodation Policy for Students.

Students attending the College of Continuing Education are not required to make requests for accommodation under Dalhousie University’s Accommodation Policy for Students. Instead, students taking non-credit University Preparation courses and requesting accommodation should complete a Requestion for Accommodation Form and/or contact Jennifer Hann (Director, University Prep Programs) by telephone at (902) 494-1468 or by email at Jennifer.Hann@dal.ca.

Students are responsible for making requests for academic accommodation (related to classroom participation, the writing of tests and examinations and/or class evaluation) well in advance of the course for which accommodation is requested.
