As of September 1, 2020, all graduate students must submit their requests for academic consideration online. View the online request, external link form and instructions for submission.
You must submit the online request in advance of the missed work (e.g., test, assignment deadline, lab, etc.) When circumstances do not permit this, you must submit the request as soon as reasonably possible within three working days.
Your instructor(s) will be notified automatically and you will have an electronic record to verify when your requests were submitted and approved. The entire system is linked to Ryerson Administration Management Self Service (RAMSS), which makes it faster and less prone to error.
Please familiarize yourself with the PDF fileAcademic Consideration Policy [Policy 167] to determine if you will be required to include documentation in your submission online through this system.
If you have any questions, please contact your program administrator.
Academic honesty and respectful conduct are key factors of your Ryerson experience. Please familiarize yourself with the Academic Integrity Policy, Student Code of Non-Academic Conduct and Academic Integrity Office student resources.
Grades and grade point averages
Your Academic Standing is assigned after each term. This is calculated using your course grades and takes into account any Academic Standing Variations that your program might have.
As a student you use copyrighted materials all the time. Copyrighted material contained in textbooks, posted course readings, handouts, multimedia material and library books are a central part of your learning experience here at Ryerson University.
Canada’s Copyright Act has a copyright exception called “fair dealing” that gives you the right to copy short excerpts (up to 10% of a work or one chapter) for certain purposes (such as private study and research). Please respect these limits.
Tax receipts are available for download from your RAMSS account usually during the third week in February each year for the previous calendar year (January – December). There are two types of tax receipts available to students, the T2202 Tuition, Education & Textbook Amounts Certificate and the T4A Statement of Pension, Retirement, Annuity, and Other Income.
A T2202 is an official statement for income tax purposes of the tuition and fees paid for qualifying courses that are eligible for claim on the income tax return.
A T4A is an official statement for income tax purposes of scholarships, bursaries, awards or other income as defined by CRA that were provided by Ryerson to a student.
For further information, please refer to the Canada Revenue Agency, external link.
Students can choose to receive their T4A through the mail by opting out online through RAMSS before January 31 each year.
