Campus-wide Policies and Regulations

Student Rights and Responsibilities > Academic Accommodation for Students with Disabilities

The University of British Columbia recognizes its moral and legal duty to provide academic accommodation. The University must remove barriers and provide opportunities to students with a disability, enabling them to access University services, programs, and facilities, and to be welcomed as participating members of the University community. The University's goal is to ensure fair and consistent treatment of all students, including students with a disability, in accordance with their distinct needs and in a manner consistent with academic principles.

The University will provide academic accommodation to students with disabilities in accordance with the British Columbia Human Rights Code R.S.B.C. 1996, c. 210 and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Part I of the Constitution Act, 1982, being Schedule B to the Canada Act 1982 (U.K.), 1982, c. 11. Provision of academic accommodation shall not lower the academic standards of the University. Academic accommodation shall not remove the need for evaluation and the need to meet essential learning outcomes.

Students with a disability who wish to have an academic accommodation should contact the Disability Resource Centre (www.students.ok.ubc.ca/academic-success/disability-resources/) without delay see UBC Policy LR7: Academic Accommodation for Students with Disabilities (universitycounsel-2015.sites.olt.ubc.ca/files/2021/10/Disability-Accommodation-Policy_LR7.pdf).
