We aim to provide an environment where students with disabilities can study without disadvantage.
We are committed to providing suitable and reasonable adjustments to support students with disabilities including health/medical conditions. Reasonable adjustments are based on individual support needs and are designed to enable students with a disability to participate in education on the same basis as other students.
We are an adult education institution and students require independent learning skills to operate within this environment. When you enrol at CIT, our relationship is with you as the student. We aim to empower you to access study options and to strive towards your study goals. You are welcome to have a parent or support person involved in your learning journey. However, irrespective of your age, they cannot replace you in the decision making or contact processes.
To be able to access reasonable adjustments at CIT you must register with CIT Disability Support.

How do I register?
To register, you need an appointment and must complete a CIT Student Support - Disability Contact Form (MS Word 37Kb) and provide supporting medical documentation, diagnosis or psychologist report.
At the appointment Student Support staff will discuss any individual reasonable adjustments you may require while studying at CIT. Together you will develop an Access Letter to share with teachers so they can implement the needed adjustments.
