Transition to Employment
Congratulations on graduating Queen's! Did you receive academic accommodations? If so, you might need to put some thought on transitioning to work and whether you would benefit from workplace accommodations. Career Services has resources and services to help students.
- Strategize about asking for accommodation(s) during the hiring process or on the job
- Think about disclosure (is it necessary? When to do it? How to do it?)
- Connect with “disability-friendly” employer organizations
- Leverage your relevant experience (paid or unpaid) in resumes and interviews
- Use tools to determine career options that fit your unique interests, skills and needs
Career Services also has an accessible workstation for student use. It is equipped with JAWS, Kurzweil 3000, Dragon etc. in our Career Information Area (3rd floor, Gordon Hall).

Accommodation at Convocation
Queen's is committed to ensuring that all of our Convocation participants - graduates, guests and faculty - experience a day that is enjoyable, as well as memorable. If you are a guest with a disability coming to Queen's for a convocation ceremony, please visit the "for Visitors" section for more information for visiting the Queen's campus.
It is recommended that you arrive as early as possible, and no later than 30 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony. Doors open 90 minutes prior to each ceremony. Arriving early ensures that you will receive suitable seating before the Procession, which begins 15 minutes prior to the start time. If a graduate or a guest attending Convocation has a disability, seating can be reserved by completing an online form (PDF - Office of the University Registrar).
Please note that the Form must be submitted by the graduate on behalf of their guest(s).
The Office of the University Registrar's website has more important information and services for persons with disabilities under "Special Needs" (scroll down).
