Requests should be made as early as reasonably possible. We acknowledge that some issues may make it impossible for you to report until you've received medical attention or support for a traumatic event.
Read the course syllabus
To see the options for making up missed work when you're unable to meet academic requirements over a short period, check the course syllabus.
If the work you missed is optional (e.g., it's one of several quizzes and two can be missed without penalty), you may not need to make up the missed work.
Check with your advising office
Depending on your circumstances and your program, requesting a concession may have different requirements. Your first step is to check with your academic advising office.
To learn the process for requesting an academic concession, check with your faculty's or school's academic advising office or your graduate advisor/supervisor.
In some cases, your request will be managed with the advising office. In other cases, your course instructor will manage it.
Other reasons to contact academic advising
Please contact your faculty’s academic advising if:
- You’re unsure whether you’re eligible for an academic concession
- Your circumstance or situation lasts more than a few days
- You continue to face difficult life events repeatedly
