Step-by-step Process

A request for accommodation can be made by:

  1. Registering for BCIT program or course(s).
  2. Completing the Student Information Form [PDF] prior to your appointment and either:
    1. Download, complete, and email Accessibility Services the form
    2. OR
    3. Fill out the form in-person on campus at the Accessibility Services
  3. Contacting the Accessibility Services for an appointment.
  4. Bringing all relevant, current documentation to the appointment.
  5. Meeting with an Accessibility Services' Vocational Rehabilitation Specialist (VRS) to review the documentation, the impact on studies, and the accommodations BCIT may be able to provide.
  6. Updating your Individual Accommodation Plan each semester.

To allow sufficient time for assessment and implementation of accommodation requests, contact Accessibility Services in a timely manner. Wherever possible, requests for accommodation should be made before the time of acceptance to BCIT and six weeks before the start of any course or program for which accommodation is sought.

If a request for accommodation is for resources which are not regularly available at BCIT (such as interpreters, transcribers, alternate format textbooks, or adaptive technology) the request should be made at least four months before the start of the course or program.
