UCFV is committed to the integration of students with disabilities into its courses and programs. We encourage independence while providing services to students with disabilities who may require additional support in order to achieve their educational goals. We are student-centered and focus on abilities. Access advisors are available to arrange support services such as classroom and exam accommodation, and to act as resource people and liaisons between the student, faculty and staff, and internal and external agencies.
How to receive services
Call an access advisor at any one of the campuses to arrange for an information session to see if any of the services we have to offer may be of some assistance to you. Access advisors are available 9 am4 pm, Monday to Friday.
