Applying for Examination Accommodations/Concessions

In accordance with the UP Policy on Students with Disabilities and supporting inclusive education legislations, students with disabilities may apply for academic accommodations for tests and examinations.

If you would like to determine your eligibility for academic accommodations (concessions) kindly apply as early as possible in the academic year. Reasonable accommodation measures can only be put in place following a successful application to the UP Disability & Reasonable Accommodation Panel. In order for your reasonable accommodation requests to be reviewed and feedback be given timeously, please register with the Disability Unit and submit appropriate supporting documentation before the commencement of the first semester assessments.

Students can consult with the Disability Unit (walk-in; x2064; [email protected]) for all disability related queries and support (including to assess if a student is eligible for additional time on the basis of a disability).

Students at the Mamelodi campus can consult with a DU staff member every Friday at the Disability Unit Computer lab located within the Mamelodi Campus Library.

All forms are available at the Disability Unit or can be emailed following a consultation with the Disability Unit.

Once all appropriate documentation has been received, atleast 3 weeks required to process documentation particularly during peak periods.

It must be noted that concession applications for the 1st semester close on the 30th April 2019.
