Admissions Accessibility Considerations

Teacher Education Accessibility Admissions Form

If you meet the minimum admission requirements and feel you have been academically disadvantaged, please submit our online Admissions Accessibility Form and we will individually review your application.

If you have less than 70% on your top 10 full university credits, unfortunately, we will not consider you under the Admissions Accessibility Policy.

If you are admitted under this policy, you will be required to meet the same progression and graduation standards as other students.

Please note, we will begin accepting the Accessibility Admissions Form on October 10, 2021. Requests for special consideration, including the submission of any supporting documentation, must be submitted by is December 10, 2021. No Accessibility Admissions forms will be accepted after this date.

      • gender identity
  2. Extenuating Circumstances
    • An applicant who considers themselves to be academically disadvantaged for reasons that are beyond their control may request special consideration by submitting the Admissions Accessibility online form.

    • Request an individual review and special consideration by submitting the Admissions Accessibility online form and articulate how your disability has impacted your academic performance.
    • Supporting documentation must be provided.
