Accommodation request / approval

Students registered with the SAAC must request their accommodations and sign their Individualized Education Plan (IEP) EVERY semester.  It is important for students to provide each of their teachers with an accommodation letter if they intend to use their approved accommodations for their courses.

The deadline to request accommodations is consistent with the course withdrawal date established by the College.

New Dawson student

You must make an appointment with your counsellor; they will print your accommodation letters.  Be sure to give the letter to each of your teachers if you intend to use your approved accommodations in their courses.

Returning Dawson student

Returning students can request approval of their accommodations online by using the self-registration module.

From this platform, students can select some, or all previously approved accommodations from a list for each of their courses.  Once a request is received, their counsellor will either approve or deny the request.  Students can verify the status of their request by logging back into the “Self Registration” module.  Please allow three (3) business days to process all requests.

  • If approved, the student can pick up their letters and sign their IEP in 2E.8A.
  • If denied, the student will need to make an appointment with their counsellor.
