Accessibility at UCN

UCN strives to ensure students who are registered with Student Accessibility Services (SAS) receive accommodations that they are entitled to in accordance with:
Accessibility for Manitobans Act (Legislative Assembly of Manitoba)

Manitoba Human Rights Code

**Four categories of disabilities are:

  • Mental – conditions that affect the mind
  • Physical – conditions that affect mobility
  • Cognitive – conditions that affect learning
  • Sensory – conditions that affect any of the five senses.

Student Accessibility Services (SAS)
SAS strives to provide accessible learning opportunities and reasonable accommodation for all UCN students with permanent or temporary disabilities. Medical documentation is required from the appropriate medical professional for students to be eligible for accommodations. UCN believes that students have the right and the responsibility to choose to register or not with SAS. Students are encouraged to declare their disability when applying; your decision to register or not can be made at a later date.
