Do you have a learning or invisible disability?
e.g. Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Disorder, or Autism Spectrum Disorder.
If so, the University of Auckland offers a variety of academic accommodations, including special conditions for tests and exams.
You need to apply for special conditions, just like you did for school exams (e.g. NCEA, Cambridge, IB).
Special conditions are not automatic.
Apply as soon as possible, ideally before the semester starts, so that your special conditions can be processed in time for your first tests.
It can take 4-6 weeks from your initial appointment with Student Disability Services to meet with an Inclusive Learning Adviser to discuss your conditions.
Applying for special conditions takes time.
Am I eligible?
Your documentation needs to:
- Be from a qualified specialist.
- Be current (i.e. less than four years old).
- State your learning/invisible disability.
- Specify your previous conditions.
Please check our criteria.

It is easiest to do this before you leave school.

Make an appointment and bring your documentation with you.
Do this as soon as possible.
|Meet with Inclusive Learning staff. After you have been referred by Student Disability Services, we will discuss your special conditions with you.|
