Accommodated Learning Centre

Supporting your Online Learning

The Accommodated Learning Centre facilitates equitable learning supports in the university environment for students with a wide range of documented disabilities.

Students with Disabilities Grant funding, through Alberta Ministry of Advanced Education, enhances our university's capacity to provide timely services, supports, and accommodations for students with disabilities seeking assistance so that they may seamlessly and successfully fully participate in their programs of study.


The Accommodated Learning Centre has sourced and created a variety of Online Learning Resources that have been made accessible to all students. Please navigate to our "Resources" tab where you can find resources for Academic Writing Assistance, Accessibility Features, Time Management, Online Learning, Wellness, and more!
