The next step requires you to read and agree to ‘Trinity Code of Practice for students with disabilities’. The Code of Practice outlines your rights and responsibilities as a student with a disability in availing of the supports provided by the Disability Service.

Once you have read the Code of Practice you need to confirm that you have read it and whether you agree to it. Tick ‘Yes’, if you have fully read it and agree to the points outlined within this document.

It is important to be aware that if you do not agree to the points outlined within the Code of Practice, then you will be unable to fully register with the Disability Service and this will delay your application to receive Reasonable Accommodations.

If you have queries about the Code of Practice, please contact a member of the Disability Service staff for more information.

The Code of Practice has been approved by the Student Services Committee in Trinity College Dublin.

You are required to upload your Evidence of Disability at this stage. You must select the type of evidence of disability that you are uploading from the drop down menu at the bottom of the page. 

Please be advised to check what evidence of disability applies to you by clicking on this link. For example, if you are registering with a mental health difficulty, depression, or anxiety etc., you need to upload evidence from a Psychiatrist outlining your disability.

If you have a Specific Learning Difficulty such as dyslexia, you need to upload a copy of your most recent Educational Psychology report clearly stating you have a specific learning difficulty.  For all DARE students, please upload the evidence you submitted to the CAO.

If you do not have appropriate evidence of your disability you should forward the evidence of disability form to your medical consultant / specialist to be completed.

Once you have selected the evidence of disability to upload, then click ‘Proceed to Upload Document’.
