G.1.1 In-Person Assessments and Absences

A student who is absent from an in-person assessment in a course will receive a grade of zero on the assessment. If a student communicates with the instructor and explains the circumstances around the absence, the instructor may transfer the percentage weight for the assessment to another component of the course (such as the final examination), set another assessment, or make other alternative arrangements. An instructor will normally make this decision based on the information provided by the student. The instructor may ask for supporting documentation to confirm an absence. For additional information on supporting documentation, see section M.1. Supporting Documentation and the Use of a Statutory Declaration.

Students are responsible for costs that may be associated with obtaining supporting documentation.
