Faculty and Staff at Queen's University

The information contained in these pages is intended to inform and assist Faculty and Staff at Queen's University in their work with and support of students with disabilities. 

Every student registered with Queen's Student Accessibility Services (QSAS) has provided medical or other documentation verifying they are a student with a disability.  Academic accommodations approved by QSAS staff are based on this documentation, the student's reported personal experience with their disability, and our screening processes.

Academic Accommodations

Academic accommodations for reasons of a disability are never intended to give an advantage or to guarantee academic success. Rather, they are intended to provide an equal opportunity for students who need to do certain tasks in a different fashion. Students with disabilities, like all students, are expected to meet the essential requirements of the curriculum, regardless of their need for accommodation.
