Graduate Students with Disabilities
Do you have a newly diagnosed or newly acquired disability? Did you require academic accommodations during your undergrad?
If you believe you may require academic accommodations, both new and returning students, on campus or distance students, should contact the Disability Services Office (DSO). The DSO can assist you in connecting with those services, supports, and resources within the Queen's community.
Education, Training, and Awareness page lists many workshops and certificates offered at Queens.
Awards, Scholarships and Bursaries
There is a range of financial assistance and services available to students with disabilities at Queen's. Students are strongly encouraged to contact the Disability Services Office.
Accessibility Fund through SGPS and DSO
If you are a graduate, law, education or theology student at Queen's, the The Society of Graduate and Professional Students (SGPS) is your student society. Students who are registered with the Disability Services Office (DSO) and are in need of funding to cover costs associated with specific academic accommodations may qualify for the SGPS accessibility bursary. Your Disability Advisor is responsible for contacting the SGPS on your behalf to request support from the bursary and verifying that the funds are being requested to cover costs associated with an academic accommodation. This bursary was created by the SGPS and is supported by student fees collected from graduate and professional students. This bursary is open only to SGPS students.

SGPS Student Advisor Program
The SGPS Student Advisor Program offers advice and advocacy services to graduate and professional students on issues concerning their well-being while at Queen's. The advisors also act as an effective referral service to experts on campus.
