Academic Relief

Academic relief may be provided when mental health concerns are inferring with a student’s ability to function academically (e.g. unable to attend classes, complete assignments, write midterms/exams).

Mental Health Services can only provide academic relief based on mental health concerns. Students requesting academic relief will be assessed on a case by case basis. Attendance of an individual counselling appointment does not guarantee a supportive letter.

If a letter of support is provided by Mental Health Services, students are required to contact the academic counselling unit in their faculty. All decisions regarding academic relief are finalized by the academic counsellor. A supportive letter does not guarantee that a specific accommodation request will be granted.

Students with ongoing academic accommodation needs may be eligible for Accessible Education. Please contact Accessible Education.
