standing (see Academic Regulation 10.2.1) is reserved for a student who, because of illness or other extenuating
circumstances beyond his or her control, is unable to complete all the work for
a course. At least 60 per cent of the work
to be evaluating in the course (assignments, midterms, laboratories, final
examination, as specified in the course outline) must be completed and passed
to be eligible to make this request. For more information about aegrotat (AG) standing, please read Appeal Regulation 3.3.3.
following material must be included as a part of the appeal:
- Associate Dean (Studies) Appeal Form [PDF]

fee (payable by debit, Master Card or Visa). Students may fax credit card information to
the Faculty of Arts and Science office at Fax: 613-533-2467 using the Payment
Form for Arts and Science Administrative Services.
- A letter of explanation clearly
demonstrating the significant extenuating circumstances, beyond the student’s
control, which prevented him or her from completing all the work for the
course. See also Tips for Writing a Good
- Supporting documentation/letter
from an appropriate professional that clearly indicates ways in which the
extenuating circumstances directly affected the student’s performance. The letter should verify that these effects
were substantial enough to cause the academic problem. Students are encouraged to read the Appeal of Academic Decisions Section 1 portion of the Academic Calendar. Students are advised to submit an Off-campus Physician's Note [PDF] if requesting
support from a medical professional outside of Health, Counselling and
letter of support from the instructor should also be included. The instructor may e-mail their statements to email@example.com.

other information or insights from the instructor about the student’s
participation in the course.
