Accommodations and Experiential Learning

In order to facilitate accommodations for experiential learning opportunities, you can contact your Accessibility Counsellor to start a discussion. If you are not registered with Accessible Learning Services, please find a link to our How to Register page in the resources below.

Experiential Learning Accommodation Form

The Experiential Learning Accommodation Form is a communication tool developed with the student which outlines suggested accommodations to support the student while ensuring they are able to meet their learning outcomes. These suggestions can help guide supportive conversations that are geared toward the specific experiential learning opportunities.

Accommodation Documentation Form (for Nursing and PSW Clinical Placements)

The Accommodation Documentation Form (for Nursing and PSW Clinical Placements) is required for students to provide relevant documentation in order to participate in their clinical placement. This form is to be completed by a registered health care practitioner (RHCP).
