Late Policy

Due dates are created to assist you in time management and to help me return marked assignments to the class in a timely fashion. Due date extensions without penalty are given when circumstances exist that are detrimental to your studies and are explained to me prior to this due date. 5% of the value of the assignment per day late is the usual penalty otherwise.

 

Accommodation Policy

Accommodation for assignments or other class components due to personal needs or other exigencies will always considered. Please talk to me about these circumstances as soon as they become known.

 

Disability Accommodations

Part of this commitment includes arranging academic accommodations for students with disabilities to ensure they have an equitable opportunity to participate in all of their academic activities. If you are a student with a disability and think you may need accommodations, you are strongly encouraged to contact the Disability Services Office (DSO) and register as early as possible.

Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is constituted by the five core fundamental values of honesty, trust, fairness, respect and responsibility www.academicintegrity.org

These values are central to the building, nurturing and sustaining of an academic community in which all members of the community will thrive. Adherence to the values expressed through academic integrity forms a foundation for the “freedom of inquiry and exchange of ideas” essential to the intellectual life of the University (see the Senate Report on Principles and Priorities www.queensu.ca/secretariat/policies/senateandtrustees/principlespriorities

 

Students are responsible for familiarizing themselves with the regulations concerning academic integrity and for ensuring that their assignments conform to the principles of academic integrity. Information on academic integrity is available in the Arts and Science Calendar (see Academic Regulation 1 www.queensu.ca/artsci/academic-calendars/2011-2012-calendar/academic-regulations/regulation-1  on the Arts and Science website (see www.queensu.ca/artsci/academics/undergraduate/academic-integrity  and from the instructor of this course. Departures from academic integrity include plagiarism, use of unauthorized materials, facilitation, forgery and falsification, and are antithetical to the development of an academic community at Queen’s. Given the seriousness of these matters, actions which contravene the regulation on academic integrity carry sanctions that can range from a warning or the loss of grades on an assignment to the failure of a course to a requirement to withdraw from the university.
