How to register with Accessibility Services
If you have a documented disability you are eligible to register with Accessibility Services (AS) for accommodations and support. The process to register and receive academic accommodations is very easy. Please read the following information and view our "How to Register with Accessibility Services" video for more details.
Start by completing the Early I.D. Form by logging on to FanshaweOnline, look under “Resources” and click “Accessibility Online Services”. Click the “Early I.D. Form” link, then click the “Register” button.
Please note: You must have an active FanshaweOnline (FOL) Account before you can access the Early I.D. Form. Once you have confirmed your offer of admission by paying your $500 deposit, your FOL Account should be active.
Fill out and submit the Early I.D. Form. You will then receive an email from our intake coordinator requesting you submit disability documentation.
For students applying for or receiving OSAP funding:
To confirm a disability for OSAP purposes, the OSAP Disability Verification Form must be completed and submitted to OSAP through your OSAP account or directly to the Fanshawe Financial Aid Office. It is important that students requiring accommodations also provide the appropriate consent for the Financial Aid Office to be able to share this information with Counselling and Accessibility Services.
For students not applying for or receiving OSAP funding:
Documentation to confirm a disability needs to be submitted to Counselling and Accessibility Services. Please have a regulated health professional complete the Confidential Disability Information Form.
Information about obtaining a Psycho-Educational Assessment is available here:
Our intake coordinator will invite you to attend an AS orientation session and provide you with your Accessibility Counsellor's contact information. You can then proceed with booking an appointment with your AS counsellor who will work with you to determine appropriate accommodations. Your counsellor will also review the various supports, services, and potential financial opportunities that may be available to you.
Planning ahead for your First year at Fanshawe? You must have an active FanshaweOnline (FOL) Account to complete the Early I.D. Form. Access to FOL is granted when you have confirmed your offer of admission by paying your $500 deposit. If you would like to learn more about Accessibility Services before the deposit due date, please contact our Intake Facilitator (firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange an appointment with an Accessibility Services team member.
Remember: Please register for Accessibility Services through Early I.D. as soon as your FOL Account becomes active. Once your Early I.D. is received, you will be connected with your AS Counsellor to put your accommodations in place for the coming year!
Congratulations for taking these important steps to support your academic success.
