How to Register with SAS
Registering with SAS for Academic Accommodation
For incoming September, 2023 students: SAS101 is a full-day event offered by SAS, open to all new students with disabilities and their parents. This is an information day focusing on the things that require your attention as an incoming first-year student. There are three SAS101 sessions scheduled this summer: Friday, July 7, Friday, July 14, and Thursday, July 20 (Trent University's in-person Summer Orientation is the following day, on Friday, July 21). Check back as we post updates!
For all students, here's how to register with SAS:
1. Review our documentation requirements
Your documentation should be as recent as possible, and outline the functional limitations of your disability. If you have older or incomplete documentation, it is possible that only minimal accommodation can be implemented until more current or complete documentation is provided. Criteria regarding age of documentation is specific to the nature of a person's disability, and is outlined on the Documentation Requirements section of our website.
2. Complete the pre-intake questionnaire
All students who register with SAS begin the formal intake registration process by completing a Pre-Intake Questionnaire. This questionnaire is designed to connect you with an appropriate SAS Advisor, and helps us to anticipate questions or concerns that you may have prior to your first appointment. You will be asked a series of questions pertaining to your disability and how your disability impacts your academics.
This questionnaire will take approximately 15 minutes to complete, and it will "time out" after 30 minutes. Please have your disability documentation ready to upload to your questionnaire.
After you have completed and submitted the questionnaire, you will be contacted by a SAS staff member within 3 to 5 business days to schedule an intake appointment with one of our SAS Advisors. Thank you in advance for completing the Pre-Intake Questionnaire first. We appreciate your patience while we review your information and match you with the appropriate Advisor.
3. What happens during an intake appointment?
You and your SAS Advisor will develop an accommodation plan based on your strengths and your documented areas of need. With your permission, your professors are notified of your SAS registration and your academic accommodations. Information about your disability is not disclosed to your professors. At this point, you will now be considered fully registered with SAS at Trent.
