Accessibility Services

Advocating for an accessible learning environment for all students at Red Deer Polytechnic.


If you are a Canadian student with a documented, permanent disability and in a course or program that is Student Aid eligible, you may be eligible for grants designed to assist you with education and living costs and exceptional education-related costs such as assistive services or equipment.


  • Complete an Alberta Student Aid application.
  • Meet with an Accessibility Coordinator at Red Deer Polytechnic to discuss the grants associated with both Canada Student Loans and Alberta Student Aid.
  • Submit appropriate documentation to Accessibility Services at Red Deer Polytechnic so that appropriate recommendations for services and technology can be made, and so the Coordinator can sign Student Aid's Schedule 4 that will recommend eligibility for grants.
