Registering

To access disability services, you need to complete the registration process, and once you are registered in the system, you can view your profile and eligibility for services, and upload documentation. You can also request services and check on their status.

Firstly, confirm your eligibility to receive support from Disability Services, then register. As some services take time to organise we encourage you to register as soon as possible.

To begin the registration process, log in with your UniKey and enter the required information on the ‘Student request to register’ page. Once you have filled out the 'Student request to register' page, and have arranged your supporting documentation, you need to make an appointment to complete the registration process with a Disability Services Officer by calling +61 2 8627 8422.

Please note that all students registering with Disability Services must read and acknowledge the Disability Information and Acknowledgement of Use and Disclosure of Personal Information documents on the 'Student request to register' page. The University cannot provide students with adjustments or services if the Acknowledgement of Use of Personal Information form has not been read and acknowledged.

Supporting documentation

To support your registration, you must provide recent and legible medical documentation from your medical doctor or treating health professional using the Disability Services Supporting Documentation Form.

Once your medical doctor or treating health professional has filled out the form, upload the completed form to the 'Student request to register' page. Alternatively, you can bring the completed form to your initial appointment with a Disability Services Officer or ask your medical doctor or treating health professional to email the form to .

Supporting documentation for students with a learning disability

If you are requesting services due to a learning disability, Disability Services requires a complete copy of the results of the psychometric testing used to diagnose the extent of your learning disability.

This testing must have been conducted after you turned 17 as features of learning disabilities can change during childhood and adolescence. If required, a Disability Services Officer can refer you for psychometric testing with relevant assessment centres or psychologists.

If other conditions exist alongside your learning disability, you will also need to provide a completed copy of the Disability Services Supporting Documentation Form.

Supporting documentation for students with handwriting difficulties

If you are requesting services due to handwriting difficulties (unlrelated to an obvious injury or congenital concern), Disability Services requires a complete copy of the results of the assessment undertaken by an Occupational Therapist to diagnose the extent of your handwriting difficulty.

If other conditions exist alongside your handwriting difficulty, you will also need to provide a completed copy of the Disability Services Supporting Documentation Form.
