Students with disabilities can be and are as successful as any other postsecondary student. There are however aspects to each disability – the functional limitations – which may impact the student’s academic performance and university experience. To gain a better understanding of such limitations, you will be asked to submit formal disability documentation from a helath care professional, and to complete the PMC Assessment of Functional Impairment (AFI). Documentation forms outlining requirements for specific disability categories can be downloaded from this page. The PMC AFI will be emailed to you and is used to evaluate the nature and the degree of functional impairment due to disability, in order to inform PMC support services.
Below you will find detailed information about certain disability categories and implications for your life and work as a Carleton student.
