Reduced Tuition Fee for Students with Disabilities

Students with disabilities who require the accommodation of a reduced course load due to the impact of a documented disability may be eligible to have tuition fees reduced for the final courses needed to complete their program.

What students need to know

You should pay the same amount of tuition fees for a program as other students without a disability if you were required to complete any semester on a reduced course load.

  • To be eligible, you must have a permanent disability with supporting documentation that confirms the disability and the need for a reduced course load as a learning accommodation.
  • This policy only covers one program even though you may have changed programs over the time you were registered.
  • If you are on a reduced course load as an accommodation and have paid the equivalent of full tuition for the program, you will only be charged $20 per course plus College ancillary fees until you complete your program.
  • This policy covers only courses that you completed successfully and for which you paid. It does not cover courses that you need to take again due to late withdrawal or unsuccessful completion.
  • If you are eligible to receive OSAP funding, the reduced tuition fee should be reflected in your assessment. If your OSAP assessment did not take into consideration the reduced fee, you may require a reassessment and are advised to contact the Financial Aid Office.  You do not need to be OSAP-eligible to qualify for the Reduced Tuition Fee. 

Please make an appointment with AccessAbility Services to discuss this policy, assess your eligibility, and to register for the Reduced Tuition Fee.
