MEDICAL/PERSONAL PROBLEM


If you feel that you have a medical or personal problem that is interfering with your work, you should contact your home Faculty Academic Counselling Office and your instructor as soon as possible. Problems may then be documented and possible arrangements to assist you can be discussed at the time of the occurrence rather than on a retroactive basis. In general, retroactive requests for grade revisions on medical or compassionate grounds will not be considered.

Lastly, it is always most helpful to include your full name and student number on all academic correspondence or when leaving a voicemail message.
