Absence from course commitments

Statement from the Dean’s Office, Faculty of Science

If you are unable to meet a course requirement due to illness or other serious circumstances, you must provide valid medical or other supporting documentation to the Dean's office as soon as possible and contact your instructor immediately. It is the student's responsibility to make alternative arrangements with their instructor once the accommodation has been approved and the instructor has been informed. In the event of a missed final exam, a "Recommendation of Special Examination" form must be obtained from the Dean's Office immediately (see C: Special Examinations, below).

A. Absence for medical illness:
Students must familiarize themselves with the Policy on Accommodation for Medical Illness: https://studentservices.uwo.ca/secure.index.cfm
A student requiring academic accommodation due to illness, should use the Student Medical Certificate when visiting an off-campus medical facility or request a Record’s Release Form (located in the Dean’s Office) for visits to Student Health Services.
This form can be found at: http://studentservices.uwo.ca/secure/medical_document.pdf
Medical documentation for missing quizzes, midterm tests, and/or the final examination must be provided immediately to the Dean’s Office (Rm 191 Western Science Centre for students registered in Science and BMSc degrees). Students should immediately notify the course coordinator if a quiz or exam has been missed.
Absence from quizzes: Make-up quizzes must be completed prior to the next laboratory.
Absence from labs: Students may contact the laboratory coordinator directly for missed lab exercises.
Absence from 3 or more laboratories requires documentation submitted to the Dean’s Office.
Absence from midterm tests: Make up tests will be provided on direction from the Dean’s office
Absence from the final exam: In the event of a missed final exam, a "Recommendation of Special Examination" form must be obtained from the Dean's Office immediately (see C: Special Examinations, below)


B. Absence for non-medical reasons:
Approval from the Dean’s Office is required for non-medical absences from quizzes, tests and/or the final examination. Absence from quizzes: Make-up quizzes must be completed prior to the next laboratory.
Absence from labs: Students may contact the laboratory coordinator directly for missed lab exercises.
Absence from 3 or more laboratories requires documentation submitted to the Dean’s Office.
Absence from midterm tests: Make up tests will be provided on direction from the Dean’s office
Absence from the final exam: In the event of a missed final exam, a "Recommendation of Special Examination" form must be obtained from the Dean's Office immediately (see C: Special Examinations, below)


C. Special Examinations
A Special Examination is any examination other than the regular examination, and it may be offered only with the permission of the Dean of the Faculty in which the student is registered, in consultation with the instructor and Department Chair. Permission to write a Special Examination may be given on the basis of compassionate or medical grounds with appropriate supporting documents.

A Special Examination must be written at the University or an Affiliated University College no later than 30 days after the end of the examination period involved. To accommodate unusual circumstances, a date later than this may be arranged at the time permission is first given by the Dean of the Faculty. The Dean will consult with the instructor and Department Chair and, if a later date is arranged, will communicate this to Registrarial Services. If a student fails to write a scheduled Special Examination, permission to write another Special Examination will be granted only with the permission of the Dean in exceptional circumstances and with appropriate supporting documents. In such a case, the date of this Special Examination normally will be the scheduled date for the final exam the next time the course is offered.

5. Additional Information/Statements


Statement on Use of Electronic Devices No electronic devices are required for tests or examinations.

Statement on Academic Offences

Scholastic offences are taken seriously and students are directed to read the appropriate policy, specifically, the definition of what constitutes a Scholastic Offence, at the following Web site: http://www.uwo.ca/univsec/handbook/appeals/scholoff.pdf

Computer-marked multiple choice tests and/or exams may be subject to submission for similarity review by software that will check for unusual coincidences in answer patterns that may indicate cheating.
