The university distinguishes between ongoing accommodation needs and short- term (less than 6 weeks in duration). If you require ongoing accommodation you should approach Student Accessibility Services (SAS). For short-term requests, please approach the instructor. In either case, you should attempt to make alternative arrangements as soon as possible.

5 Academic Accommodation due to Religious Obligations Brock University acknowledges the pluralistic nature of the undergraduate and graduate communities such that accommodations will be made for students who, by reason of religious obligation, must miss an examination, test, assignment deadline, laboratory or other compulsory academic event. Students requesting academic accommodation on the basis of religious obligation should make a formal, written request to their instructor(s) for alternative dates and/or means of satisfying requirements. Please note that owing to the ‘grace-free’ period following the deadline for most assignments that is particular to this course, (see below), further accommodations owing to religious observance will not normally be warranted in the case of missed assignment deadlines. Medical Exemption Policy The University will accommodate students whose studies become interrupted, or who may be unable to complete academic work, due to an incapacitating medical condition. In these situations, the student should complete the Brock Student Medical Certificate - content/uploads/sites/45/Medical-Certificate.pdf and include any relevant medical documentation to support his/her request for academic accommodation based on medical grounds. The University may, at its discretion, request more detailed documentation in certain cases. Please note that owing to the ‘grace-free’ period following the deadline for most assignments that is particular to LABR 2P03, (see below) further accommodations owing to short-term medical issues will only be warranted if the documentation supports a request for a period greater than 7 days, and for a period prior to the original deadline date. In other words, the ‘grace-free’ period acts in lieu of 7 days’ accommodation. Any such documentation should be submitted no later than one week following the deadline. Non-medical/disability related requests Please note that work schedules will not normally be the basis for an accommodation. While it is unfortunate, perhaps even unfair, that some students must maintain paid employment while others are not so required, part of managing your life means being able to juggle certain kinds of responsibilities. I have constructed the syllabus in such a way so as to respect the juggling act that many students are required to perform. For all other non-medical/disability related requests please see the instructor as soon as possible.
