Please note the following :
0) Website, assignments, midterms
Students are required to register with the website of the course. All course materials (including assignments)
will be posted there; no paper (except this outline) will be handed out.
If a course features online assignments, the students can check that their assignments were indeed submitted;
excuses of the type ‘I clicked the submit button but I did not realize that my answer did not get recorded’ are
not valid. Since the answers become public knowledge after the deadline has passed, no late submissions are
• Students will not be permitted to write make-up tests or hand in assignments late. Students with
documented medical or compassionate reasons will have the weight of a missed test/assignment moved to
the other test/assignments.
1) Policy on Unclaimed Term Work
Any term work that has not been claimed by students will be held for four (4) months from the end of the
final examination period for the term in which the work was assigned. At the conclusion of this time, all
unclaimed term work will be destroyed according to FIPPA guidelines.

• Writing and Learning Support
The Academic Learning Centre (ALC) offers services that may be helpful to you throughout your
academic program. Through the ALC, you can meet with a learning specialist to discuss concerns such as
time management, learning strategies, and test-taking strategies. The ALC also offers peer supported study
groups called Supplemental Instruction (SI) for certain courses that students have typically found difficult. In
these study groups, students have opportunities to ask questions, compare notes, discuss content, solve
practice problems, and develop new study strategies in a group-learning format.
You can also meet one-to-one with a writing tutor who can give you feedback at any stage of the
writing process, whether you are just beginning to work on a written assignment or already have a draft. If
you are interested in meeting with a writing tutor, reserve your appointment two to three days in advance of
the time you would like to meet. Also, plan to meet with a writing tutor a few days before your paper is due
