Accessibility Services is responsible for the determination and provision of academic accommodations at the College through the Learner Accommodation Policy and the Accommodations for Learners with Disabilities Procedure.
Under Alberta Human Rights legislation, Bow Valley College has a duty to accommodate learners with disabilities. We are here to help you assist BVC learners with accommodations in your classes.
You will receive an email when a student in your class has been approved for an accommodation. You will be asked to sign in to the Accessibility Portal using your BVC Credentials to view the student’s Individual Accommodation Plan (IAP) and upload tests for those who write in LSS.

Universal Design for Learning
Universal design for learning (UDL) is a framework to improve and optimize teaching that eliminates barriers through initial design and instruction rather than overcoming barriers later, through individual accommodations. We encourage instructors to incorporate UDL principles in the design of curriculum and classes as this decreases the need for individual accommodations and increases access and engagement for all learners.
