What is the Academic Consideration process?
There are two ways to request academic consideration:
1. Medical Absence
2. Non-Medical Absence
For missed course work under 10%, please contact your instructor if your course outline does not indicate how to handle missed course work under 10%.
Students can fill out the Academic Consideration form(s) here. Students are required to include supporting document(s) with their request. The filled-out Academic Consideration form and supporting document(s) should be emailed to the Hive (email@example.com). For more information on the types of documents that are accepted please see the chart below.
Please note, the Exam Conflict and Multiple Exam Situation is in effect for both midterm and final exams. Please visit the Exam Conflicts & Multiple Exam Situations for more information on what constitutes for an Exam Conflict or a Multiple Exam consideration.
What if I cannot get documentation?
For extenuating circumstances, Academic Advisors can approve Academic Consideration based on Compassionate Grounds. However, it is always recommended that students provide supporting document(s).
Can I submit an Academic Consideration for a final exam?
Yes, depending on the student's reason for submitting an Academic Consideration (Multiple Exams Conflict, Compassionate and Illness) the process will differ. Please refer to above, What is the Academic Consideration process? for more information.

Academic accommodation consists of arrangements that allow a student with a disability a fair opportunity to engage in academic activities and fulfill essential course and program requirements.
