Grievance Procedures

A student who believes an individual item of term work has been incorrectly or unfairly marked may ask the course instructor for a re-evaluation. Students should make such requests as soon as reasonably possible after receiving the work back, but no later than two weeks after it was returned. Such a request entails a remarking of the work. Hence, if a remarking is granted, the student must accept the resulting mark as the new mark, whether it goes up or down or remains the same. Continuing with the remark or the appeal means the student accepts this condition. If the student is not satisfied with the remarking that has been granted, he or she may appeal to the Undergraduate Associate Chair.

Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is fundamental to learning and scholarship at the University of Toronto. Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in this academic community ensures that the U of T degree that you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement, and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.

Familiarize yourself with the University of Toronto’s Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters. It is the rule book for academic behaviour at the U of T, and you are expected to know the rules.

If you have any questions about what is or is not permitted in a course, please do not hesitate to contact your instructor or TA. If you have questions about appropriate research and citation methods, seek out additional information from the instructor, or from other available campus resources like the U of T Writing Website. If you are experiencing personal challenges that are having an impact on your academic work, please speak to your instructor or seek the advice of your college registrar.
