integrityReminder - Academic integrity and consideration

The end of term is a stressful time and we understand the pressure on students during the current climate. We also acknowledge that it can be tempting to take short cuts and resort to desperate measures during tough times. Please remember that resources are available through Student Wellness Services and the Academic Considerations Process to help you when things get too overwhelming.

Top five things you should know going into exams:
  1. If you are too ill (physically or mentally) to write an exam DO NOT WRITE. If you write while ill and perform poorly, this is considered to be a valid attempt and your mark will stand. Rather, you should submit a request for academic consideration. For more information, please see
  2. If you experienced extenuating circumstances this term and you are unable to salvage some or all of your winter term courses, reach out to an academic advisor right away. Call our office at 613-533-2470 to book an appointment and we will be happy to review your options with you.
  3. Check and double check your exam schedule! Missing an exam because you misread the date or time can lead to you earning a zero grade on your exam. If you are studying outside of the Eastern Standard Time Zone (EST) make sure you account for the time difference.
  4. Be prepared! Do you have a reliable computer and internet connection to write your exams? Do you have the software you need loaded onto your computer? Have you performed a test-run? Make sure everything is in good working order well before your first exam to avoid running into any stressful situations during your exams.
  5. Be careful! Before you write any exam, put your phone and study notes away well out of reach from your workstation. Even just being in possession of these items can lead to a departure from academic integrity.
