These circumstances may include a significant illness or injury, a diagnosed disability, financial or job difficulties, major life or family upheaval. Students may wish to tell us how their extenuating circumstances may have had a negative impact on their academic performance and what strategies they have, or will put into place to ensure that they can be successful at York University.
No medical or psycho-educational assessment documentation is required at this point. Applicants who are admitted to the University and register as a student and wish to have support from Disability Services will be required to provide formal documentation.
