CSC108H Summer 2018: Policies and Forms

Special Consideration

Students experiencing illness or other emergencies that prevent them from being able to complete homework on time, or write the midterm, can apply to the instructors for special consideration. You will be required to affirm that you are abiding by the Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters, in particular that it is an offence

to engage in any form of cheating, academic dishonesty or misconduct, fraud or misrepresentation not herein otherwise described, in order to obtain academic credit or other academic advantage of any kind
that is, that you are truly experiencing an emergency, and acknowledge that to falsely claim so is an academic offence. Applying does not guarantee that you will be granted special consideration.

To apply for special consideration in CSC108, email the instructors ( from your UofT email address and include ALL of the following:

  1. Your UTORid and student number.
  2. The coursework you are applying for special consideration on.
  3. The date when you think you will to be able to complete coursework again.
  4. An affirmation that you are experiencing a personal emergency, and understand that to falsely claim so is an offence under the Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters. You do not need to provide details of the emergency. You MUST give an affirmation. Do NOT send a medical note instead of this.

IMPORTANT: Notify the instructors as soon as possible if you find yourself in such a situation. It is always easier to resolve situations earlier rather than later. If your emergency will affect your ability to complete coursework for more than a few days, or in multiple courses, we recommend you also talk to your registrar.

Note that this procedure does NOT apply to the final exam.

Midterm Test Remark Requests

Mistakes sometimes happen when marking. If you feel there is an issue with the marking of your test, you may request that it be remarked.

Remark requests are accepted for two weeks after tests are returned, and will be completed before the final grades are submitted at the end of the term.

You must give a specific reason for each request, referring to a possible error or omission by the marker. Remark requests without a specfic reason will not be accepted.
