2. Within 48 hours, complete an online Special Consideration Request at
https://utmapp.utm.utoronto.ca/SpecialRequest. Late requests will not be
considered without a "letter of explanation" as to why the request is late.
Please note that the system only supports Microsoft Internet Explorer and
Firefox for the time being.
3. Within one week of submitting the online request, submit original supporting
documentation (e.g. Verification of Student Illness or Injury form, accident
report, etc.) to the DROP BOX located outside Room 3274, Innovation
Complex Building. Do not email the documents to the instructor or the TA’s.
a) The Verification of Student Illness or Injury forms (available on the
Registrar’s webpage) must show that the physician was consulted within
ONE day of the test date. A statement merely confirming a report of illness
made by the student is NOT acceptable (such as, “This patient tells me
that he was feeling ill on that day.”).
b) If support was obtained from someone other than a practitioner listed on
the U of T Verification of Student Illness or Injury form, then a Verification
of Extenuating Circumstances form is acceptable.
c) If you missed your test for a reason connected to your registered
disability, the department will accept documentation supplied by the UTM
AccessAbility Resource Centre.
d) ROSI declarations are not accepted as supporting documentation.
e) If your reason for absence is due to a last-minute flight change due to a
family emergency (illness/death etc.) you must provide your flight itinerary
INCLUDING the date the flight was purchased as well as boarding passes in
addition to proof of death/illness/accident.
f) Other documentation can include, but is not limited to, letter of support
from AccessAbility, automobile collision or police reports, death
certificate, and supporting documentation from employers, lawyers and
other related personnel.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your email account is working and able to receive
emails. Claims that a Departmental decision was not received will not be considered as a
reason for further consideration. Pre-purchased plane tickets, family plans, weddings, or
busy schedules are not acceptable reasons for academic accommodation.
Missed Final Exam: Refer to the Deferred Exam instructions on the Registrar’s webpage.
Re-grading: Written requests for re-grading of term tests MUST BE SUBMITTED within
one month of the test to the DROP BOX located outside Room 3274, Innovation Complex
Building. The request must clearly explain where extra marks are warranted. Re-grading
involves the whole test. Please note that while rare, your grade can potentially be
lowered if a mistake in grading is found. Also note that the teaching assistants who lead
your weekly tutorials do not grade your term tests. Re-grading concerns should not be
directed to them.
