Remember, it is your responsibility to contact the Program Manager to discuss accommodations* and procedures related to alternative examinations, or your course Instructor in cases of missed coursework, within 48 hours of the originally scheduled test/exam. Unfortunately, failure to do so will result in a grade of zero (0) on the coursework/exam, and no further consideration will be granted.
Note: Supporting documentation will be required, but will not ensure approval of accommodation(s).
SCS works in partnership with York University’s Student Accessibility Services and the Office of the Registrar to support alternate exam and test accommodation services for students with disabilities at the Keele campus. Please submit any Alternate Exam and test requests at least three (3) weeks in advance of the scheduled test dates.
Students with sufficient academic grounds may request that a final grade or an assignment in a course be reappraised. To start the process, please complete a reappraisal form. Please note that a request for a grade reappraisal may result in the original grade being raised, lowered, or confirmed.
All students are expected to familiarize themselves with the following information, available on the Senate Committee on Curriculum & Academic Standards webpage: http://www.yorku.ca/secretariat/policies/index-policies.html
- Students and instructors are expected to maintain a professional relationship characterized by courtesy and mutual respect.
- It is the instructor’s responsibility to maintain an appropriate academic atmosphere in the classroom.
- The instructor will decide whether such an atmosphere is no longer present in a class, and is trained to take appropriate steps to return to a professional environment.
If you feel that this policy has been violated, you should notify your instructor as soon as possible. You may be asked to provide a detailed written description of the complaint to the instructor. The instructor may take measures they feel are appropriate to resolve the issue and/or may forward the complaint to the School of Continuing Studies (SCS) for review. Please refer to the full policy document on the York University website at: http://www.yorku.ca/scdr/ Please find the Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities here.
If the University is open, then classes will be running. If the University is closed, then classes will not be running. Any missed classes will be rescheduled.
University Closures/Class Cancellations: (416.736.5600 OR www.yorku.ca) While this is rare, weather and/or other emergencies do occur that require us to suspend our operations. While every effort will be made to contact students, this is not always possible. If you are unsure of whether the course is running, please call the University’s weather/emergency information line, or check the SCS Twitter feed.
