Academic Supports for Students with Disabilities

The Academic Success Centre (ASC) has a diverse team ready to support students who have a disability and need education-related support such as tutoring or academic coaching services.

The ASC can provide students referred by an Accessibility Specialist up to 8 hours of tutoring and/or up to 4 academic coaching sessions per term with an assigned ASC staff tutor.

To request a referral for accessibility tutoring services, students should follow these steps:

Accessibility Services Tutoring Referral Process

  1. Book an appointment with Accessibility Services to discuss your academic support plan. Click here to book an appointment.
  2. Meet with an Accessibility Specialist to discuss support options. If you qualify for tutoring support through Manitoba Student Aid, or other agency, your Accessibility Specialist can assist you in completing the required documentation to access these services from the ASC.
  3. Your Accessibility Specialist will submit a tutoring referral to the Academic Success Centre on your behalf. You will receive a confirmation email with instructions and next steps, once the referral has been submitted to the ASC.
  4. The Academic Success Centre will review your referral and assign a tutor to work with you, if available. If we have a tutor for your course, you will receive a follow up email containing your assigned tutor's contact information and instructions to arrange a meeting schedule.

Additional tutoring hours can be provided on a fee for services basis when funded through the Canada Student Grant for Services and Equipment – Students with Disabilities, or other approved disability support agency. To determine if funded tutoring is an option, students should speak to their Accessibility Specialist about eleigibility requirements and how to access additional tutoring sessions with an assigned ASC tutor.

Students with disabilities are encouraged to refer to this page on our website or to contact the Academic Success Centre at for more information on how to access our services.
