How to Register

**COVID-19 Update: Access and Inclusion appointments will only be available by  Zoom virtual appointment effective from Monday, 23 March 2020 until further notice. If you have any questions, please send an email to access.inclusion@anu.edu.au

_________________________________________________

Registration with A&I involves meeting with a DisAbility and Equity Advisor (DEA) to develop a personalised Education Access Plan (EAP), which outlines reasonable adjustments to support you to achieve your personal best whilst studying at the ANU. This information will be kept private and will not appear on your academic record or transcript. 

In order for the University to adjust a process, provide equipment, or make any other adjustments, the student must disclose the nature and extent of the disability or medical condition. This information will be kept private and will not appear on your academic record or transcript. A&I will then assess the nature and extent of the disability or medical condition and facilitate the provision of support. Students may request that their assessment be reviewed at any time. 

Appointments will consist of a 50 minute consultation with a DEA to discuss your circumstances and develop and EAP. Please arrive 5 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time. Late arrivals may result in a rescheduling of your appointment.  

 Your EAP may include: 

  • Advocacy 
  • Accessible Parking 
  • Assistive technology 
  • Carer attendance flexibility 
  • Extensions 
  • Ergonomic equipment 
  • Note-taking 
  • Special (alternative) exam arrangements 
  • Advice and assistance for physical access issues on campus 
  • Accessible accommodation

============================================

Step 1

Arrange your current medical documentation outlining diagnosis, impact on studies and recommendations for reasonable adjustments.  

Your medical practitioner is to complete the Health Practitioner Report (HPR). Please click on this link for a copy Health Practitioner Report. If you have medical documentation which is no older than 2 years, you may submit this for consideration.  

If you are transitioning from Secondary/High school and have Individual Education Plan (IEP/EAP) or similar additional learning needs documentation, please also forward this with your email requesting a registration appointment at A&I.

Medical documentation

To enable a full and proper assessment we ask students to provide opinions from medical experts that describe the nature of the disability or medical condition and the extent to which that disability may impact on the student's ability to undertake their studies. This allows us to:

  • provide advice on the impact of disability in the tertiary education environment
  • provide advice on the nature of the supports and adjustments that would minimise the impact of disability in tertiary education
  • assist with negotiations and advocacy with other university staff
  • ensure that all students are protected by our policies and disability discrimination legislation.

Medical documentation outlining your diagnosis, impact on your studies and the recommended adjustments to support you in your studies must be provided to Access and Inclusion for assessment.  Please request your medical practitioner to complete our Health Practitioner Report. Alternatively if you have current (no older than 2 years) comprehensive medical documentation outlining the above, you may submit this for consideration.
