Registering at the Centre
New students with disabilities, or those with short-term illnesses and injuries (e.g., a broken leg/arm or recovering from surgery), who require an accommodation at the St. John's campus should arrange to meet with Ruth North, Student Affairs Officer, at least six-to-eight weeks before classes commence (i.e., in the case of students with disabilites). If students discover that they require accommodations or services once they are attending Memorial, they should contact the Centre as soon as possible to arrange an appointment.
At the beginning of the semester, students should identify themselves to staff at the Centre who can then prepare the Test/Exam & Classroom Accommodation Forms for their professors. See below for more information on the Test/Exam & Classroom Accommodation Form.
Students already registered at the Centre should identify themselves to the Centre at the beginning of every semester if they are requesting accommodations. Staff can then prepare the Test/Exam & Classroom Accommodation Forms for their professors. See below for more information on the Test/Exam & Classroom Accommodation Form.
Test/Exam & Classroom Accommodation Form
All requests for academic (testing) accommodation must be based on documented need. It is the responsibility of the individual requesting an academic accommodation to provide the necessary documentation to the Blundon Centre.
The Test/Exam & Classroom Accommodation Form outlines the accommodations that are recommended for the student that semester. Blundon Centre staff will prepare a form for each course the student is requesting an accommodation in that semester. They will consult with students themselves as to the most appropriate accommodations in their specific cases (i.e., the accommodations requested in particular courses could vary depending on the method of evaluation used by course instructor(s).
Once the student signs the form(s), they are asked to deliver them to their professors. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with their professors, lab personnel, etc., at the beginning of the semester to discuss the arrangements outlined on the form.
