AccessAbility Information Management for Students (AIMS)

During the first week of classes please log in to the AccessAbility Information Management for Students (AIMS).  The link to AIMS is located on the Centre's homepage

Here you will:  

  • Register your tests and exams that you need to write with the Centre with academic accommodations
  • Confirm your upcoming tests and exams 
  • Register for note-taking services and download your notes from the Centre’s website

If you do not log in and register your tests/note-taking requests there will be a delay in your receiving services from the Centre.  

If you require assistance in logging into and using AIMS, please contact the Centre immediately at access.utm@utoronto.ca or 905-569-4699.

REMINDER: 

The test/exam confirmation policy is in effect.  Please review the policy and if you have any questions contact the Centre at 905-569-4699

It is ALWAYS your responsibility to take the initiative and make reasonable requests in a timely manner that you feel could make the university experience a more positive one.  Please remember that the AccessAbility Resource Centre operates in a very deadline-driven environment. It is crucial that you register with the Centre, complete all necessary forms, and confirm for tests and exams in a timely manner. If you miss a deadline for any of these, we cannot guarantee that you will be accommodated. You can meet with your AccessAbility Advisor and/or the Examination Coordinator if you have any questions or concerns.
