It would be best to make an appointment to see a Student Services Advisor (SSA) at your campus as soon as possible. It would be preferable to get the required medical documentation prior to your appointment with the SSA.
Unfortunately, it is very hard to provide adequate support without the required supporting medical documentation.
Unfortunately, without disclosure to the Student Services Advisor (SSA), there this very little that SAE can do to support you throughout your program. The information you provide is collected for the purpose of developing and approving your student access plan and the provision of other required support to assist you to reach your full potential here at SAE.
The SSA will only disclose your personal or health information to other SAE staff upon your consent. Please feel free to contact the SSA to discuss your concerns.
This is a document prepared by the Student Services Advisor in consultation with yourself as the student. Your SAPD is used to document information about the impact of your disability on your studies. It also outlines reasonable adjustments which you can provide to academic staff each trimester.
The Student Access Plan Disability (SAPD) is developed by the Student Services Advisor (SSA) in consultation with yourself. The SSA will need to see the medical documentation you provide. The SSA then seeks feedback from the Department Coordinator and Campus Academic Coordinator before the SAPD is finalised and an electronic copy is sent to you. Please note that the SAPD may not necessarily disclose the nature of your disability, only the impact that your disability has on your ability to study, and the reasonable adjustments that may be required.
You can then use your SAPD to negotiate reasonable adjustments with academic staff in your modules.
It is important to note that you are not obliged to disclose your disability to academic staff after the finalisation of the SAPD, but of equal importance is that the relevant SAE staff may not be able to meet your needs if they are not informed of your individual circumstances.
You will need to apply for Special Consideration, which must be made in writing and accompanied by appropriate supporting documentation.
You will need to complete the application before the submission date of your assignment or examination.
If you have a SAPD and your current illness is related to the diagnosis of your SAPD, then you do not need to provide any further medical documentation with your Special Consideration Form.
If your current illness/condition is related to something other than what’s on your SAPD, you will need to provide further medical documentation to support your application for Special Consideration.
