Academic Consideration: A student who, because of illness or compassionate considerations, cannot do prescribed term work or cannot complete it by the prescribed deadline or misses an examination, should request academic consideration from the faculty member concerned. The faculty member may require verification of the circumstances on which the request is based. It is recommended that students use the Ryerson Student Medical Certificate available at www.ryerson.ca/forms to accompany the request for consideration. If the problem affects more than one course, the student should consult with her/his program department.
