Welcome

COVID-19 Update

The college is closed for the time being but we are still working. We ask that you contact us via email or phone. If you will be starting at Fleming in May or September and want to register with Accessible Education Services, we need you to send us your disability documentation by email. Please, if possible, scan your documents rather than take a picture of them and email them to disabilities@flemingcollege.ca

Welcome to Accessible Education Services at Fleming College.

We understand that as a college student with a disability you have unique needs, strengths and goals. We strive to improve the accessibility of the college environment for all students to have a positive and equitable learning experience.

We work to provide students with disabilities, no matter whether the disability is permanent or temporary and no matter what the diagnosis is or the functional limitations are, with the academic accommodations they need to level the playing field and eliminate barriers and the services they need to build skills, strategies and resources to make the most of college.

Your success is important to us. So, if you don’t have documentation about your disability available or if you have not yet been diagnosed, we can put in place interim accommodations. We will work with you to get documentation outlining your functional limitations and your accommodation needs. We know that getting documentation or a diagnosis of a disability can take weeks and sometimes an entire semester. Time lines for getting your documentation can be worked out between you and your counsellor.

We provide services to about 1100 students with disabilities. This means you are not alone, but on the other hand, you aren’t just a number to us.

Our services are free, confidential and voluntary. They are firmly rooted in our commitment to respecting your dignity, integrity and your right to make your own choices for yourself with respect to the services you choose to use.

To access these accommodations and services, you will need to register with Accessible Education Services.
