Course Policies and Regulations 

Code of Professional Conduct:

The University is a place of higher learning. Perhaps the most important thing you will learn here is how to be a functioning and productive member of society. Accordingly, you should conduct yourself in a professional manner in your interactions with your professors and peers. In particular, this means
  • Be punctual. Arriving late for class can be distracting and disruptive to the people in the class.
  • Please do not use laptops, cell phones, or other electronic devices during lectures unless approved by the instructor.
Mid-term test:

A student who misses a mid-term test due to illness must contact their course instructor by e-mail on the day of the missed test explaining the reason for their absence.

The student must subsequently provide appropriate medical documentation to the course instructor, at which time the instructor and student shall discuss how the missed exam will be made up.

A student who cannot attend a mid-term test for religious reasons or due to conflict with another class or examination must inform the course instructor at least two weeks prior to the test date so that alternative arrangements can be made.

Final examination:

A student who misses the final examination for any reason, has a conflict with another final examination, or cannot attend the final examination for religious reasons must follow the appropriate procedures outlined in the University of Saskatchewan Calendar.

Non-programmable calculators will be permitted on all tests and examinations in this course.

Academic Honesty:

Students are expected to be academically honest in all of their scholarly work, including course assignments and examinations. Academic honesty is defined and described at the University of Saskatchewan Academic Honesty Website.

If an instructor has reason to suspect academic dishonesty on an assignment, the instructor will not return the original assignment to the student. The instructor and student shall meet to discuss the issue and attempt to resolve the issue. If the instructor and student cannot resolve the issue, the assignment will be forwarded along with all relevant evidence to the Arts and Science Academic Affairs Committee for a disciplinary hearing.

The Student Academic Affairs Committee treats all cases according to the University Policy on Academic Honesty and has the right to apply strict academic penalties. See the following document for details.
