To be seen: Clients/families may self refer Fall/Winter Registration 1. Once you have registered for classes through Carleton Central, make an appointment with your PMC Coordinator for early September (or early January, if registering in the winter term). To book an appointment, please call 613-520-6608. 2. Attend your first class for each course to get a sense of what to expect and anticipate disability related needs. 3. When you meet with your PMC Coordinator, bring your course outlines. During this appointment, you will discuss with your PMC Coordinator classroom and/or test/exam accommodations that you will need for each course, and a Letter of Accommodation will be sent to each instructor by email. Registering with the PMC BEFORE you start school in September will increase the likelihood of a smooth transition and ensure you have supports in place without unnecessary delay. DOCUMENTATION REQUIREMENTS The Paul Menton Centre (PMC) is committed to assisting students with disabilities to meet essential requirements in their courses/programs through appropriate accommodations and support services while maintaining academic standards. To register with PMC, you must provide appropriate documentation of your disability from an regulated health care professional. Accurate and recent documentation will ensure that the necessary information required to evaluate requests for disability support services has been provided. For documentation requirements for your disability, please see Disability-Specific Information section.
