International Students with Disabilities

ASD welcomes the opportunity and challenge of serving enrolled and prospective international students with disabilities.

International students with a disability must apply and meet the same eligibility criteria as Canadian students. (Please see the information about eligibility and how to apply.)

ASD will extend all the same assessment and documentation services that students residing in Canada receive, provided:

  • the language of communication is English
  • communications outside of Canada and the continental United States are conducted by e-mail; and
  • we can access the information we need to provide accommodation.

With respect to variables such as cost, available human or community resources, technological differences, and soon; ASD may not be able to extend a full range of services. We will work with you to determine the best possible accommodation that can be provided. Contact ASD for further information.
