Supporting Your Student
Accommodations for Students with Disabilities
If your student is admitted to York and has a diagnosed physical, sensory, medical, learning, or mental health disability, we encourage you to connect with York University's Student Accessibility Services as soon as possible after accepting an offer of admission. The SAS team will connect your student with an accessibility counsellor to arrange for academic accommodations.
International Arrival Support
The York International team offers information and support on immigration, work permits, health services, working as an international student and more. Most importantly, they are committed to helping students from around the world feel welcome, safe and connected to their new community.
Transitioning to University
We'll work together to set your student up for success from the moment they accept our offer of admission! We provide a variety of academic, orientation and transition services to ensure students feel confident and prepared for the academic, social and cultural changes of starting university.
