Working with your advisor


  • Review your documentation. (Is it up to date, sufficient, appropriate?)
  • Create an accommodation plan and discuss how it connects to the learning outcomes in your courses.
  • Discuss CAL procedures. (What do I need to know?)
  • Orient you to the online services portal
  • Discuss other resources and services on campus. (Do I need a referral?)
  • Discuss any concerns about confidentiality.
  • Discuss grants. (Do I qualify for funding for services --i.e. learning assistance-- or technology? What else is available to me?).

Communication and news

We communicate with all students by regularly scheduled email to your UVic preferred email address. Please verify that your email address is accurate and up to date, and ensure that “” is whitelisted in your email settings, as detailed here, to ensure that you don’t miss important or time sensitive emails.

Your advisor will respond to your questions by email or you can make an appointment to meet with them.
