Academic Accommodations

SASS – Academic Accommodations works collaboratively with our university community and stakeholders to facilitate the academic accommodation process.

The academic accommodation process is a collaborative process and a shared responsibility among all parties involved.

Our role in the academic accommodation process is to assess, establish, and implement appropriate academic accommodations for students who have a temporary or permanent disability.

Students who need academic accommodations are encouraged to contact us as soon as possible.

What is new ?

Ventus Professor Portal

Professors will now receive one email inviting them to log in to the Professor Portal rather than receiving numerous emails.

The Professor Portal allows the professor to:

  • See a list of all accommodations needed for each course
  • Submit pre-filled Notices of Examination (NOE)
  • Delete and modify NOEs already submitted
  • Fil out / edit Proctor Instruction sheets
  • See which students have confirmed to write the exam at SASS - Academic Accommodations (with accommodations) or in-class (without accommodation)

Here is the link to log in to the new Ventus Professor Portal.:

If you have any questions please contact our team. 

Distance exams

We are proud to announce that it now can offer examination or test for other colleges, universities, or other types of institutions.
