Student Participation in Formal College Activities
1. Introduction and Purpose
The purpose of this policy is to provide a mechanism to address evaluations missed by students participating on Varsity Athletics teams, Student Government, the College Board of Governors or other formal College activities.
This policy applies to all Loyalist College students engaged in formal College activities.
3. Policy Statement
As the participation of students in Varsity Athletics, Student Government, the College Board of Governors and other formal College activities benefits the College as a whole, the College will recognize the time commitment required of students who are members of the Varsity Athletics teams, Student Government, the College Board of Governors and those who participate in other approved College activities, who are in current good academic standing, by rescheduling evaluation sessions, if requested.
Students are to notify their course faculty member of their need for a rescheduled evaluation 10 days, when possible, prior to the scheduled date.
Faculty members are to extend reasonable consideration to members of Varsity Athletics teams, Student Government, the College Board of Governors, and any student participating in a formal College activity by:
- Extending deadlines for submission of assignments, lab reports, and similar projects.
- Giving alternative assignments.
- Being lenient about attendance, late arrival to, or early exit from, classroom sessions, labs or practicums.
- Adjusting the regular academic timetable of the student to facilitate the Varsity Athletics, Student Government, College Board of Governors, or other College sanctioned activities, where possible.
In the case of a missed evaluation or lab session, a revised evaluation or an alternate lab session will be rescheduled as soon as possible after the original date.
If the student does not believe the accommodation offered by the faculty member is reasonable, the decision can be appealed to the Dean or designate, as per the Academic Appeal policy (AOP231).
