To all graduate students who began a new graduate degree program on or after September 1, 2011:
In February 2011, Queen’s University approved that, as of September 2011, all new graduate students shall receive mandatory training in accessible customer services, as required by the Government of Ontario, under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA). The applicable regulation appears in the calendar of the School of Graduate Studies here: http://queensu.ca/calendars/sgsr/Accomodating_Students_with_Disabilities__and_Accessible_Customer_Service.html
Queen’s graduate students who started their graduate degree program on or after September 1, 2011, will satisfy the requirement by completing the online course created for this purpose under the course number/title, AODA-800 Accessible Customer Service Training. This is to advise you that you will be enrolled in this mandatory course, AODA-800. Course enrolment will be done automatically by the Office of the University Registrar. Completion of the course is a graduate degree requirement that must be completed prior to graduation. AODA-800 is graded on a Pass/Fail basis, and successful completion of the online training course shall result in a Pass for the course.
For more details about the course and this requirement, please go to our website http://www.queensu.ca/equity/apps/AccessibleCS_Training.php
SGS 804 Human Research Ethics (aka CHRPP) is a non-credit course that must be taken by all graduate students who will engage in research involving human subjects. It must be listed on an Academic Change Form so that it will appear on transcripts. SGS 804 does not count towards the MES degree and cannot be substituted for a regular graduate course. It is a web-based tutorial on Canada's national standards of ethics for research. We encourage MES-2 students to take this course if their research involves human subjects. It is compulsory for MES-1 students engaged in this type of research.
