Exam arrangements vary depending on the program and the type of exam to be administered. This is solely up to the discretion of the instructor/program coordinator. If there is a disagreement with a grade or mark is there an appeal process? Yes - It is the intent of the Academic Complaint and Academic Appeal policy to provide a reasonable, efficient and effective process to facilitate the resolution of matters affecting a student s academic performance and, where relevant, his or her standing in a program. An Academic Complaint or Academic Appeal is deemed to be an appeal of an academic decision of Humber, and not a complaint against an individual Professor, Program Co-ordinator or Dean. The academic decisions dealt with through this policy are: a) Decisions on grades b) Decisions based on academic misconduct, including suspension or expulsion. c) Decisions arising from the methods and criteria used by a professor in assigning a final mark. d) Decisions regarding academic probation and withdrawal or special consideration on the basis of medical, psychological or compassionate grounds. e) Decisions regarding denial of a request for re-admission to a program. Note: Where readmission to a program has been denied, the student must be able to present, for consideration, evidence of the ability to perform at an acceptable level in the program in question. Humber is organized into a number of Schools, for example, The Business School or the School of Health Sciences. The intent of this policy is to allow the student and the School the

4 opportunity to attempt to resolve the issue through the Academic Complaint process before proceeding to a college-level Academic Appeal. How long has the program been offered? Since 1999 Are the equipment and books current? Yes. Are there special accommodations such as wheelchair ramps, large print or interpreters available? Yes - The Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning and the University of Guelph-Humber are governed by provincial and federal Human Rights legislation.

Services for Students with Disabilities facilitates the provision of those accommodations. If students utilize computers are they required to share?
