Academic Accommodations

The Student Academic Success Service (SASS) works with faculties and university services to develop exemplary student support services that provide for a successful university experience, in keeping with the University’s goals of fostering in students a thirst for knowledge, intellectual independence and social and community engagement.

Their main office is located on 100 Marie-Curie (4th Floor), Ottawa. ON, Canada, K1N 1A2, Tel.: 613-562-5101, Email: sass@uOttawa.ca

SASS is composed by five service centres committed to contributing to the academic success of all the students on campus and to enriching the quality of their university experience:

Aboriginal Resource Centre (ARC)
The creation of ARC in 1997 marked the beginning of a new relationship between the University of Ottawa and Aboriginal learners. The Center’s objective is to build a culturally sensitive and welcoming climate for Aboriginal students and provide services to First Nations, Inuit and Métis students to support their classroom, career and personal goals in a manner consistent with their culture and values.

Academic Writing Help Centre (AWHC).
Its goal is to help students develop strategies and skills that will enable them to identify and correct their mistakes. To do so, we offer individual writing appointments, classroom presentations and workshops, and online writing resources.

Access service
This department works collaboratively with our university community to facilitate the academic accommodation process. They are responsible to assess, establish, and implement appropriate academic accommodations for students who have a disability with respect and reliability, while adhering to the University of Ottawa’s policies, procedures, and administrative regulations, as well as Human Rights legislation.

Counselling and Coaching service
When students are feeling lost, are facing a problem that they don’t know how to handle or would just like to talk to someone in a safe place, they can contact the Counselling and Coaching service. Students are eligible to receive services at no charge if they are currently registered in and have paid tuition fees for at least one course in an academic session.

Student Mentoring
There are 18 student mentoring centres located across campus that provide students a welcoming and positive peer help environment focused on academic success. They also conduct workshops and study groups.
