LATE OR MISSED ASSIGNMENTS
If the student anticipates having difficulty meeting a deadline, they should speak with their instructor. Late or missed assignments may receive a zero grade, unless the student provides documentation of extenuating circumstances or makes prior arrangements.
At the discretion of the instructor, students may be granted a rewrite or resubmission under extenuating circumstances.
Students may request a formal reassessment if they can demonstrate that inappropriate evaluation criteria or unfair interpretation of their work has been made. The assignment to be reassessed must be greater than 25% of the overall course value.
A designation of Incomplete is granted under extraordinary circumstances in which a student is unable to complete requirements by the end of a course. A request must be made one week prior to the last class. The student, together with their instructor, fills out the Incomplete Request Form and determines the due date, no later than dates indicated in the Important Dates section. If the work is not submitted by this date, a grade of ‘F’ will be assigned.
Supplemental Assessments provide students with an additional opportunity to demonstrate competence to achieve a passing grade. Students who have received a failing grade are eligible for a Supplemental Assessment when:
- The student has regularly attended classes.
- All required course work is completed during the term.
- A final course grade of 50% or greater has been achieved.
- The failure is not due to academic dishonesty.
All students are in Good Standing at the start of their program. This is reviewed at the mid-point and end of each academic term. This review determines the students’ status as follows:
- Good Standing: The default category assigned to each student upon registration in a program or course. Good Standing is maintained by meeting or exceeding the course pass mark of 60% in all courses.
- Academic Probation: Students may be placed on academic probation at any point during the term if their level of academic achievement in any course falls below the course pass mark of 60%.
- Academic Suspension: Students are involuntarily suspended when it has been determined that there is no likelihood that the student will achieve success in their program or course of studies.
- Academic Leave: Students will discuss with their Academic Advisor and complete an Academic Leave form.
Students are responsible for contributing to a positive learning environment and respecting others’ health and well being. They have right to security through adherence to College and government policies and procedures.
Students are expected to conduct themselves with academic integrity, ethical conduct and honesty in the learning environment. Academic misconduct includes, but is not limited to: dishonesty, cheating, plagiarism, and submitting the same work to fulfill the requirements of more than one assignment without prior arrangement.
Students who have reason to believe themselves to be unjustly treated within the College are encouraged to seek to amend the situation by means of an Informal Appeal. Please see your Academic Advisor, College Counsellor, Registrar or the Academic Dean to submit a request for an Informal Appeal.
After students have made attempts to resolve through the Informal Appeal process, the next step is to submit a Formal Appeal in writing to the College Director.
