A permanent disability means a functional limitation caused by a physical or mental impairment that restricts the ability of a person to perform the daily activities necessary to participate in studies at a post-secondary level or in the labour force and is expected to remain with the person for the person's expected natural life.
Acceptable documentation must be current (within 5 years):
- Verification of Permanent Disability Form (Section 4 to be filled out by physician)

- Psychiatric Report
- Audiologist Report

A temporary disability is a short term disability, injury or illness. The documentation should indicate the nature of the disability, anticipated duration, and the services which would be most appropriate.
- Temporary Disability Form for the physician to complete.
Reimbursement of 75% of the cost of one diagnostic assessment for learning disabilities may be available to an enrolled student with approval of Student Aid BC.
