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 watch the video below for more details.
Step 1: Fill out and submit the Early I.D. form
Log onto FanshaweOnline (FOL), look under “Resources” and click “Accessibility Online Services”. Click the “Early I.D. Form” link, then click the “Register” button.
Step 2: Submit disability documentation
Once you 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 confirming a disability needs to be submitted to Counselling and Accessibility Services. Please have a regulated health professional complete the Confidential Disability Information Form.
Additionally, information about obtaining a Psycho-Educational Assessment is available here.
Step 3: Attend an Accessibility Services orientation session
Our intake coordinator will invite you to attend a virtual AS orientation session.
Step 4: Connect with your Accessibility Counsellor
If attending a virtual AS orientation session, you will be provided 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.
Remember: register early!
Register for Accessibility Services through Early I.D. as soon as you accept your offer of admission and your FanshaweOnline (FOL) account becomes active. The sooner your Early I.D. is received, the sooner you will be connected with your AS Counsellor to put your accommodations in place for the coming year!
If you would like to learn more about Accessibility Services before the deposit due date, please contact our Intake Facilitator (email@example.com) to arrange an appointment with an Accessibility Services team member.
Congratulations for taking these important steps to support your academic success!
