New Online Student and Faculty Portals Available

Mon. Apr. 30, 2018

Accessibility Services (AS) has implemented some changes to our procedures that will increase accessibility and benefit you. Starting May 2018, AS will introduce online service portals for students registered with AS and their instructors. AS students of University of Winnipeg programs (Undergraduate, Graduate, and PACE) will now be able to request classroom and test accommodations and notify their instructors of these academic accommodations online. The two portals are: and

Links to the portals may also be found on our department’s website. Students and instructors will need the username and password from their WebAdvisor account to log in. For detailed instructions, visit: here for student information or here for faculty information.

The portals offer online access to several AS supports and services, including LETTERS OF ACCOMMODATION, and students’ TEST/EXAM BOOKINGS. This is a secure platform that has been tested with TSC, reviewed by the Privacy office, and is currently used by colleges and universities across North America.

Letters of Accommodation to Faculty/instructor

AS students should now use the portal to request their confidential Accommodation Letter for their course instructor(s), who will be notified once this has been done. A notification e-mail will provide faculty with instructions on how to access the Letter(s) online and view the documented accommodations the student has requested for their course. The student and instructor will also have the option to download a copy of the Letter(s) for their own records. We will continue to encourage AS students to speak to their instructors directly to discuss specifically how these accommodations might apply to their course and program.

Test/Exam Bookings

AS students will now be able to submit their test/exam booking requests online through the portal. The system will notify faculty to log in to their online portal, where they will be able to: view these bookings and a list of students in each course who have requested them, update our office on the test date/time/duration information and instructions, and (up to a day before the test) upload the test copy as a single document file.
These are major changes, so we understand that there may be some questions or concerns. If you require assistance, please contact our office to ensure a quality, positive experience through this transition.
