Registration Process & Documentation Requirements

ACCESS AND SUPPORT CENTRE (ASC) REGISTRATION STEPS

  1. Complete our Student Information Form. You can do that by saving this PDF version and emailing it to us. We encourage you to complete this step as soon as you have accepted your Offer of Admission.
  2. Obtain your documentation.
  3. Submit your Student Information Form & documentation to the ASC by email.

* Please note that due to current Coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions to the Durham College campus we are not currently accepting documentation in person. Please feel free to email your documentation to our office. If you are having trouble getting your documentation to us, please email asc@durhamcollege.ca.

After the ASC has received and reviewed your documents, we will contact you to book your initial meeting.

DOCUMENTATION

Supporting documentation assists the ASC in understanding and predicting the impact of your exceptionality in a post-secondary environment and helps guide the development of your Access Plan. You will have an opportunity at your initial meeting to discuss if your supporting documentation reflects your current learning needs or if additional information is requested.

FOR STUDENTS WITH MEDICALLY-RELATED EXCEPTIONALITIES (INCLUDING MENTAL HEALTH)

To help the ASC team best support your academic needs please have your doctor complete the ASC Medical Form.

Download the ASC Medical Form here.

If you have a completed OSAP Disability Verification Form, we will accept that in place of the ASC Medical form.

Students who are deaf, deafened or hard of hearing can submit an audio gram that reflects the current level of their hearing loss.

FOR STUDENTS WITH LEARNING DISABILITIES

If you are a student with a learning disability, we would request a copy of your most recent psycho-educational assessment. If you do not have an updated assessment, within the last five years or after the age of 18, the ASC recommends that you submit what you have (e.g., previous assessments, Individualized Education Program (IEP) as a starting point so that supports can be put in place and it can be determined if an updated assessment will be needed.
