Students with disabilities who require academic
accommodation must contact Student Accessibility
Services (SAS) at 905-525-9140 ext. 28652
or firstname.lastname@example.org to
make arrangements with a Program Coordinator. For further information, consult
McMaster University’s Academic
Accommodation of Students with Disabilities policy.
Academic Accommodation for Religious, Indigenous or Spiritual Observances (RISO)
Students requiring academic accommodation
based on religious, indigenous or spiritual observances should follow the
procedures set out in the RISO policy. Students should submit their request to their
Faculty Office normally within 10 working days of the beginning of
term in which they anticipate a need for accommodation or to the
Registrar's Office prior to their examinations. Students should also contact
their instructors as soon as possible to make alternative arrangements for
classes, assignments, and tests.
As a McMaster student, you have the right
to experience, and the responsibility to demonstrate, respectful and dignified
interactions within all of our living, learning and working communities. These
expectations are described in the Code of
Student Rights & Responsibilities (the
“Code”). All students share the responsibility of maintaining a positive
environment for the academic and personal growth of all McMaster community
members, whether in person or online.
It is essential that students be mindful
of their interactions online, as the Code remains in effect in virtual learning
environments. The Code applies to any interactions that adversely affect,
disrupt, or interfere with reasonable participation in University activities.
Student disruptions or behaviours that interfere with university functions on
online platforms (e.g. use of Avenue 2 Learn, WebEx or Zoom for delivery), will
be taken very seriously and will be investigated. Outcomes may include
restriction or removal of the involved students’ access to these platforms.
