CCNM will use all reasonable efforts to accommodate students with disabilities in a manner designed to provide them with education equity in order to meet the standards of the program. At the request of a student, reasonable accommodations will be provided with respect to the documented disability, permanent or temporary, that affects the student’s ability to function in an academic setting.
Students will need to submit a completed medical documentation form (PDF) from their licensed health-care professional. This documentation will be kept in confidence by accessibility services and used solely to assess requests for accommodations. This information will be kept separate from the student’s academic file.
Once students have provided the appropriate documentation, their accommodation needs will be assessed by accessibility services, which includes the student counsellor and the associate dean of curriculum & residency. Students will then receive a letter from accessibility services, outlining any approved accommodations.
Accommodations provided by CCNM may or may not be acceptable to a given licensing board or examining body independent of the College. Students with disabilities are strongly advised to consult the naturopathic licensing board in the province or state in which they intend to be licensed.
PLEASE NOTE: First-year students should register as soon as they are accepted to the College; do not wait until September. The provision of accommodations begins after the accommodation request has been fully processed.
