Academic Support

Accessibility Services

The Accessibility Services Office (AS) facilitates the inclusion of students with a range of disabilities into all aspects of university life. Services are provided to students with a documented disability whether physical, sensory, a learning disability, or a mental health condition. Students with temporary disability (e.g. broken arm) are also eligible for the service. Even if students never need any accommodations, they can relax knowing they can access them if necessary. Accommodations may include note-taking services, alternative format textbooks, and exam-writing support.

The Graduate and Professional Program Student Handbook (PDF) are designed as roadmaps to help you navigate the accommodations process, as well as the services and supports available at Accessibility Services at the University of Toronto’s St. George campus. Whether you are an incoming or returning student, please take the time to review their contents.

It provides graduate students with free advanced training in academic writing and speaking. It offers non-credit courses, single-session workshops, individual writing consultations, and website resources.
