Re-Register for 2020-21 Academic Accommodations (For previously-registered Accessibility students)

Your Accessibility Advisor is now available to re-register you for your academic accommodations for the 2020-21 academic year. To schedule a re-registration appointment with your Accessibility Advisor, please call 905-569-4699 or email access.utm@utoronto.ca

For students eligible for Self-Renewal, you can log in to AIMS to renew your accommodations for the 2020 Summer Session (May-August).    

To renew your accommodations, please log in to AIMS (https://aarc.utm.utoronto.ca/Clockwork/custom/misc/home.aspx), click on “Accommodations Renewal”  from the main menu and follow the instructions.  By self-renewing online, a letter of accommodation will be sent to each of your instructors for the courses you have selected. Only self-renew for the lecture section of the course. If you are in a tutorial section or practical for the same course, do not select these options for self-renewal. Once you have renewed your accommodations and received a confirmation email from Accessibility Services, please log back in to AIMS and view your accommodation letters. If you see Instructor Info Missing on your confirmation email message, this will be addressed by Accessibility.

Accessibility has step-by-step videos available to view on all our AIMS procedures, this includes requesting notes, inputting tests or final exams and self-renewal. The videos can be found on our website at http://www.utm.utoronto.ca/accessibility/registered-students/aims-students

Self-Renewal will renew your accommodations and generate your Letters of Accommodation to your instructors. However, you are still responsible for placing a notetaking request and reviewing sample notes to select a note-taker, as well as inputting incoming test/quiz and exam dates (if applicable). If you are unsure how to request notes, or input test dates on AIMS, please review our Accessibility Tutorial videos or come by the main Accessibility office during office hours.

Please allow for 24 – 48 hours (not including weekends and statutory holidays) between your Self-Renewal Request and any Test/Exam requests and Note-Taking requests. 
 

Academic Accommodations for courses at St. George, Sheridan College or UTSC

If you have renewed your accommodations for 2020-21 and are taking courses at a different campus (St. George, UTSC, Sheridan College) and would like your accommodations transferred, please ensure you complete the Transfer of Accommodation Form

Please submit your completed form to the Accessibility main office (DV2037) or scan and send the form to access.utm@utoronto.ca.  Your form will be processed and your accommodations will be sent to the other campus. Please allow 24-48 hours for processing (not including weekends and statutory holidays).  Please schedule an appointment to see an advisor at the other campus to have your accommodation letter sent to your instructors.
