NOTE: The University of Guelph-Humber Undergraduate Calendar states:

 

 “Students need to remain aware that instructors have access to and the right to use electronic and other means of detection”

 

Accordingly, instructors may decide to use originality checking services, such as Turnitin.com, to ensure that submitted work conforms with the university’s Academic Misconduct policy. Students will be notified of such a requirement in advance by the instructor. More information on Academic Misconduct is included below in this outline. 

 

All sources used in written work are to be cited in accordance with APA (American Psychological Association) format.

Academic Policies

Important University of Guelph-Humber Academic Regulations

Academic Integrity / Academic Honesty

Academic misconduct is behaviour that erodes the basis of mutual trust on which scholarly exchanges commonly rest, undermines the University's exercise of its responsibility to evaluate students' academic achievements, or restricts the University's ability to accomplish its learning objectives.

The University takes a serious view of academic misconduct and will severely penalize students, faculty and staff who are found guilty of offences associated with misappropriation of others' work, misrepresentation of personal performance and fraud, improper access to scholarly resources, and obstructing others in pursuit of their academic endeavours. In addition to this policy, the University has adopted a number of policies that govern such offences, including the policies on Misconduct in Research and Scholarship and the Student Rights and Responsibilities regulations. These policies will be strictly enforced.

It is the responsibility of the University, its faculty, students and staff to be aware of what constitutes academic misconduct and to do as much as possible through establishment and use of policies and preventive procedures to limit the likelihood of offences occurring. Furthermore, individual members of the University community have the specific responsibility of initiating appropriate action in all instances where academic misconduct is believed to have taken place. This responsibility includes reporting such offences when they occur and making one's disapproval of such behaviour obvious.

University of Guelph-Humber students have the responsibility of abiding by the University's policy on academic misconduct regardless of their location of study; faculty, staff and students have the responsibility of supporting an environment that discourages misconduct. Students should also be aware that if they find their academic performance affected by medical, psychological or compassionate circumstances, they should inform the appropriate individuals,(instructors, Program Advisor) and follow the available procedures for academic consideration outlined in the University's calendar.

Students are encouraged to review the policy in the 2018-2019 Academic Calendar at: http://www.uoguelph.ca/registrar/calendars/guelphhumber/current/c07/c07-amisconduct.shtml

Grading Procedures

Feedback to students on work completed or in progress is an integral part of teaching and learning in that it allows students to measure their understanding of material and their progress toward achieving learning objectives. Feedback often goes beyond grading and should be an indication of the standard a student has achieved and should to include comments on the particular strengths and weaknesses of a student’s performance. While the nature and frequency of such feedback will vary with the course, the University of Guelph-Humber is committed to providing students with appropriate and timely feedback on their work. Faculty members are urged to provide meaningful feedback (approximately 20% of the total course evaluation is the standard), prior to the 40th class day. This is the last day that students are permitted to drop classes without incurring any academic penalties.

Missed Final Exams / Deferred Privileges

When students do not write a required final examination, complete a final assignment, or complete a work term report prior to the last class date, they must request Academic Consideration to be considered for a deferred privilege. When granted, a deferred privilege allows a student the opportunity to complete the final course requirements after the end of the semester, but during established timelines.

Please note that faculty members do not grant deferred privileges. Faculty can only grant academic consideration for work that is due during the semester and cannot grant extensions beyond their deadline for submission of final grades.

The nature of the deferred privilege may take the form of either a deferred condition or a deferred examination. The Admissions and Academic Review Sub-Committee grants deferred privileges on the basis of medical, psychological or compassionate consideration. Please see your Admission and Program advisor for details.

Accommodation Procedures

Students will identify themselves to Services for Students with Disabilities and, where required, provide appropriate documentation of their need. Where appropriate, students will inform individual instructors of their disabilities and academic accommodations required, by distributing the "SSD Memo to Faculty".

 When students require test accommodations, they will:

         Remind instructors at least one week in advance of each test or as soon as possible, that they require test accommodations

         Book the test date and time in the SSD office or make the appropriate arrangements to write in the Test Centre at least one week in advance of each test, or as soon as possible.  

Students with special needs are accommodated through Humber ITAL Services for Students with Disabilities. Students should make themselves familiar with the policies relating to special accommodations by visiting the website at: http://www.humber.ca/disabilityservices

 It is the student’s responsibility to be familiar with the University’s policies and Academic Regulations. These policies can be found at: http://www.uoguelph.ca/policies/
