O religious observance while it is strongly

This preview shows page 7 - 9 out of 12 pages.

o Religious observance – While it is strongly encouraged that students make requests within the first two weeks of class, requests for accommodation of specific religious or spiritual observance must be presented no later than two weeks prior to the conflict in question (in the case of final examinations within two weeks of the release of the examination schedule). The student must submit a Request for Accommodation form ( ) to their program office. The office will notify the instructor when they have received the request form. o Other requests for Academic Consideration which are not related to medical or religious observation must be submitted in writing together with the Academic Consideration form. The letter must clearly state the reasons for the request and describe the events or circumstances that seriously impair the student’s ability to meet their academic obligations, and that were beyond the student’s control. When possible, supporting documentation must be attached to the letter. The office will notify the instructor when they have received the request. o Students with disabilities - In order to facilitate the academic success and access of students with disabilities, these students should register with the Academic Accommodation Support Centre . Before the first graded work is due, students
8 should also inform their instructor through an “Accommodation Form for Professors” that they are registered with the Access Centre and what accommodations are required. o Regrading or recalculation – These requests must be made to the instructor within 10 working days of the return of the graded assignment to the class. These are not grounds for appeal, but are matters for discussion between the student and the instructor. Submission of the Academic Consideration form and all supporting documentation to your program office does not relieve you of the responsibility to NOTIFY YOUR INSTRUCTOR of the problem as soon as it arises, and to contact with the instructor again after the documents have been submitted in order to make the appropriate arrangements. If you do not have a justifiable reason for an absence and/or have not followed the procedure described above, you will not be given credit or marks for the work missed during that absence. For more detailed information on these issues, please refer to Senate Policy 134 at (Undergraduate Academic Consideration and Appeals) and Senate Policy 150 (Accommodation of Student Religious Observance Obligations). Both can be found at . Methods of Posting Grades Grades, when available, will be posted on D2L. Students who do not wish their grades posted on D2L must inform the instructor in writing by no later than the second class. Your final grade will not be posted on D2L. Official grades will be released by the Registrar’s Office via your RAMSS account. “Course Hero” and Related Websites Websites such as Course Hero (and others like it) encourage students to upload course-related materials. This is a very bad idea.
