Special Admission Consideration for Students with Disabilities

Français | Print

York has a policy of supporting and accommodating students with physical, sensory, medical, learning or mental health disabilities who wish to pursue higher education.

If you have a diagnosed disability, we encourage you to identify yourself during the admissions process. Even if your circumstances don't impact your admissibility to the University (you meet our admission requirements), we want to make sure you know about the support services we have in place. In no way will identifying yourself be a disadvantage to you. We want to know who you are only so we can ensure you get the support you need during the admission process and afterwards.

If you become a York student, contact Counselling & Disability Services (CDS) to arrange an appointment with disabilities counsellor as soon as possible after you accept your offer of admission in order to arrange for academic accommodations. Failure to make these arrangements may jeopardize your opportunity to receive academic accommodations in a timely fashion.
