Register with DSS

Appropriate documentation is required to register with Disability Services for Students (DSS).

  • For medical-based disabilities, a physician must fill out a medical questionnaire (PDF).
  • For learning disabilities, a psycho-educational assessment that was completed by a registered psychologist within the past five years must be provided.

The documentation can be forwarded directly to DSS by the physician or psychologist. Alternately, the student can bring the documentation along to the registration appointment.

To register with DSS, contact us to book a one-hour appointment. Registration can proceed only if the documentation is on hand at the time of the appointment.
