Accessibility Services recognize that attending BCIT can be a time of change for all students, whether from late adolescence to adulthood or the transition to a new career for a mature student. We respect that students with disabilities face similar challenges to other students plus the additional challenges imposed by disability-related limitations and barriers.
From the Accessibility Services’ model of student empowerment, the student is the person that initiates action to access services and accommodations. We look to the student to express his or her needs, provide us with the information that will help us to assist him or her, and to keep in contact with us.
A student should consider registering with us if he or she:
- has a documented disability that significantly impacts on his or her post-secondary education
- had an Individual Education Plan (IEP) in high school
- is a client of a disability-related vocational program
- was registered with Accessibility Services at another institution
