Getting Started: Accommodating Students

Accommodating Students

While not all students with disabilities at SLC register with Student Wellness & Accessibility, it is through the stewardship of Student Wellness & Accessibility and participation of the broader college and local communities that SLC continues to be committed to providing a learning environment that is accessible for all students.

Our Kingston, Brockville, and Cornwall campuses have full-time staff that support students with disabilities and faculty in a collaborative and encouraging manner. Students with temporary or permanent disabilities or functional limitations can access individually designed supports, personal counseling and accommodations to meet their academic and placement needs. SLC's goal is to address the attitudinal, informational, communication, technological,organizational, and physical barriers that can hinder the success of students with disabilities as they strive to achieve their educational, personal and career goals.

SLC embraces the legal and ethical rights to equal opportunity and freedom from discrimination for individuals with disabilities as noted under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (1982), the Ontario Human Rights Code (1990) and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (2005), particularly as it applies to our students.

Our services and supports are provided to students with a temporary or permanent disability to ensure equal access at St. Lawrence College. We work collaboratively with students and faculty to ensure that the academic environment is accessible to all.
