Accessibility Services

Accessibility Services

At Northern College, the centre providing accessibility services to students is called Accessibility Services. Accessibility Services is the primary place to find out about all of your disability related needs.


Accessibility Plan

For more information about accessibility at Northern College, and their current initiatives to address issues of accessibility, please see Northern College's 
Accessibility Plan.

Documentation Requirements

Northern College requires documentation from a regulated health care professional confirming a disability and identifying functional limitations in post-secondary education. Interim accommodations may be provided to students who are being assessed or waiting on documentation. Note: It is not a requirement to provide a specific diagnosis to access accommodations and support services at Northern College.

Students with a learning disability will need a current psycho-educational assessment completed by a Psychologist or Psychological Associate within the last 5 years or as an adult (18 years or older), confirming functional limitations. Referrals for updated psycho-educational assessment may be facilitated through Accessibility Services. Students with physical, medical, hearing, vision or mental health concerns, can have their registered health care professional can complete the Medical Information Request Form or provide similar documentation confirming functional limitations.

Please note:

  • An IEP provides background information, but does not confirm a disability or related functional limitations.
  • A registered healthcare professional is someone who is capable of providing confirmation of a disability and providing the functional limitations that may affect academic functioning (i.e. chiropractor, optometrist, family physician, psychiatrist, nurse practitioner, etc.)


For more information about required documentation or how to obtain proof of your disability, contact the Northern College Accessibility Services directly.
