Express Registration Option (ERO)

ERO offers a remote and expedited way for AAS to develop and approve your academic accommodation plan.

This process is best suited for students who do not require a registration appointment with a Student Accommodation Facilitator. 

This option offers students the opportunity to receive an accommodation plan within approximately five (5) business days of the submission of a complete Intake Form. During the ERO process, AAS may request to meet with you to ensure that your accommodations are appropriate.

Once you have completed this registration process, you will be assigned a Student Accommodation Facilitator, but will only meet if you request an appointment.

The deadline to register for the Fall 2022 semester has passed.

Registration for the Winter and subsequent semesters will open in January 2023.

To explore appropriate consideration possibilities for your current situation, contact your Academic Advisor or Program Coordinator as soon as possible.

How to Register:

Step 1: Submit your intake form and documentation

The Intake Form requires you to review the AAS policy and consent agreements, upload your disability documentation, and provide some personal details.

Your documentation must be completed by a healthcare practitioner who is qualified to make the diagnosis. It should clearly outline the specific, functional limitations you experience in an academic setting, so that we understand how your disability impacts how you learn. Understanding these details helps us create the most appropriate, tailored, and effective accommodation plan with you.

To make the process easier, check documentation requirements for your disability, and have all of your materials digitized prior to starting the form. Once you have gathered your documentation you can complete the online intake form.

 Identify Documentation Requirements

Use this interactive tool to identify what documentation you need to register with AAS.

The type of documentation required is dependent on your diagnosis and we may request more information at any time.

 Gather your Documents

The Disability Assessment Form (DAF) is completed by your health care provider.

It is required for students with a medical condition, mental health, sensory disabilities, and/or physical, functional, and mobility disabilities.

It may also be used for students with ADHD, ASD, or an acquired brain injury.

 Complete the Online Intake Form

The Online Intake Form is a Google form, and is completed by you.

It requires you to upload all documentation digitally and provide some information about yourself. 

To access this form, you must login using your Ryerson email address.

Step 3: Review your accommodation plan

Once you submit your intake form you will receive a confirmation email*. Your responses and documentation will be reviewed. Sometimes, we may request that you provide additional documentation or information.

After we receive your completed intake form and appropriate documentation, your accommodation plan will be created and emailed to you within approximately five (5) business days.

In this email you will find your accommodation plan, Student Accommodation Facilitator contact information, resources, and next steps. Please be sure to read this email carefully to understand your roles and responsibilities.
