If a problem arises that prevents a student from meeting his/her academic responsibilities, he/she must:
• contact his/her instructor as soon as he/she can
• meet with the instructor to request academic consideration as soon as possible
• submit documentation to the Departmental Office within three business days of the missed test/deadline
Please note that all excuses for absences will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Acceptance of an excuse by
the instructor is not guaranteed. Cases may be reported to and reviewed by the Programme Director. The
instructor may not grant accommodation for undocumented or unbelievable illnesses, funerals, automotive
Departmental policy concerning missed evaluations: Students are responsible for writing tests/exams and
submitting assignments on the dates specified by their instructors on the course information sheets. If a
student misses a scheduled evaluation or due date due to unforeseen circumstances, academic consideration
may be granted by the instructor provided BOTH of the following are done:
a) The student must inform his/her instructor, preferably by email, in advance of the evaluation. The student
should request academic consideration pending the submission of supporting documentation.
b) The student must present valid, verifiable supporting documentation (e.g. Ryerson Medical Certificate) to
his/her program department within three business days of the missed evaluation.
This policy is in accordance with Senate Policy 134. Students failing to follow these procedures correctly may
jeopardize their chances of obtaining academic consideration and/or a successful appeal. Only in extraordinary
circumstances (e.g. the illness is such that you are unable to operate a telephone or email, or unable to submit
a medical note by the deadline) will exceptions to these procedures be made. Under such circumstances, the
student must contact the instructor as soon as possible to inform him/her of the circumstance.
Instructors will evaluate all requests for academic consideration and the supporting documentation on a case-
by-case basis. Academic consideration is not guaranteed. Submission of fraudulent documentation is
Academic consideration: If documentation is provided and accepted, then the instructor will decide how the
missed evaluation will be made up on a case-by-case basis. Typical examples of academic consideration are as
• Missed Mid-Term: A make-up mid-term test can be given. It would cover the same material as the original
test but could be in a different format.
• Missed Final Examination: Alternative exams must be written once the student is physically able. If
necessary, a departmental make-up day may be arranged for students to write the missed exam. It is the
student’s responsiility to ontat the instrutor to arrange for the make-up exam.
Student Email Policy: Ryerso’s “eate poliy 157 states that only Ryerson e-mail accounts are to be used for
a istrutor’s eail ounication with students.
