Documentation Requirements

St. Lawrence College supports students with permanent and/or temporary disabilities based on their submitted documentation. Interim accommodations may be provided to students who are being assessed or waiting on documentation. Under the Ontario Human Rights Code, it is not a requirement to provide a specific diagnosis to access accommodations and support services. Disclosure of a diagnosis may be required for some government financial aid programs for interested students with disabilities.

Students with a learning disability must provide a current psycho-educational assessment completed by a Psychologist or Psychological Associate (within the last 5 years or as an adult), outlining functional limitations.

Students with physical or mental health concerns (examples listed below), can provide a Confirmation of Disability (COD) Form or similar documentation confirming your functional limitations, completed by a regulated health care practitioner.  Health concerns requiring this type of documentation include:

  • acquired brain injury
  • blind or partially sighted
  • Deaf, deafened, or hard of hearing
  • medical condition
  • mental health diagnosis (e.g. depression, anxiety, ADHD, ASD)
  • physical disability or mobility impairment

Please note:    

  • An IEP provides background information, but does not confirm disability or related functional limitations.
  • A regulated health care practitioner is someone who is capable of providing confirmation of a disability and providing the functional limitations that may affect an individual's academic functioning.
  • Requests for retroactive accommodations for students with disabilities are assessed on a case-by-case basis.


For more information on required documentation, please contact Student Wellness and Accessibility Service directly.
