About academic accommodations

USask is guided by Saskatchewan's Human Rights legislation and the university's Duty to Accommodate policy.

Accommodations are supports or services that allow a student with a disability, or other accommodation needs, a fair opportunity to engage in academic activities and fulfill essential course and program requirements. Accommodations are meant to level the playing field for students; they are never meant to provide an advantage to students. Accommodations are not the same as modifications; you must still meet the learning outcomes of your program.

How are they administered?

Some accommodations can be arranged by an instructor (e.g. record lectures, extensions for assignments) while other accommodations are managed by AES. Accommodations managed by AES include classroom changes, exam accommodations, assistive technology, note-taking, and alternative format materials.
