Services for Students with Disabilities
register with Disability Services in order to receive accommodations in and outside of the classroom.
After you have accepted an offer to Mohawk College you can call the Disability Services office at 905-575-2211.
The sooner you do this the better, as it takes time to get all accommodations in place. The best time is in the summer before your program starts.
When you call the Disability Services office you will be making an appointment to see a Case Manager.
Case Managers are divided up by program and by disability group. The receptionist may ask you what your disability is to ensure that you meet with the correct Case Manager.Accessing Services

Students with Disabilities
To be eligible for the Bursary for Students with Disabilities a student needs to meet the following requirements:
Students need to talk to his/her Case Manager to ensure that he/she is eligible and to discuss what types of purchases would be appropriate to accommodate his/her disability.
The Bursary for Students with Disabilities is authorized by the student’s Case Manager. Students work with their Case Manager to determine eligibility and appropriate purchases to be made with the bursary.
It is not recommended that students make purchases prior to starting college or without consulting with his/her Case Manager.
Students should make an appointment to see his/her Case Manager once OSAP is either approved or denied the student’s application.
