Requesting a Letter of Accommodation
Students registered with Learning Disability Services (LDS) with a permanent disability who DO NOT need changes to their academic accommodations, must complete a LDS Request for Letter of Accommodation Form to request a letter. Academic accommodations will be approved for the academic year ( e.g. September 2017 to August 2018) when the Letter of Accommodation is generated.
Students who are registered with LDS with a temporary disability, or those would like to discuss changes to their accommodations, should call our office to schedule an appointment with their Disabilities Counsellor.
Hours of operation and contact information are available from our Contact Us page.
Please Note: LDS relies upon the contact information provided to the university (e.g. telephone number) to reach students registered with our office. Update/verify your contact information with York online via the Student Personal Information page on the Registrar's Office website.
Requested Letter of Accommodation
Your Letter of Accommodation will be sent to you via email. Allow one week for your request to be processed.
Review the recommendations made in your Letter of Accommodation and let us know if you have any questions or concerns. You can forward your letter to your professor(s) electronically or you can print it and provide it in person.
It is expected that students registered with our office who require test/exam, classroom or practicum accommodations will discuss their academic accommodation needs and provide a Letter of Accommodation to each of their course directors at the start of the academic term, or as early in the term as reasonably possible.
