Macdonald Campus Medical Notes - Winter 2016

Guidelines on Medical Notes and Accommodation for in-course assignments, tests or exams and course outlines  –  Pilot Project for Winter 2016

For Instructors teaching courses at Macdonald Campus Winter 2016:

  • Students seeking medical accommodation for in-course assignments/tests/exams for courses on the Macdonald Campus have been asked to submit these requests, and the medical documentation, to the Student Affairs Office (106 Laird Hall). Instructors are not to assess or view any medical documentation, or discuss the medical situation with the student at any time during this process.
  • The Student Affairs Office will receive and hold the documentation, review it, and will inform both you and the student, via email, whether or not the request has been approved. This will be done within two working days of receiving the request from the student.
  • If accommodation is granted, it is the student’s responsibility to contact you and enter into a discussion about make-up tests, reweighting of other assessments, extensions on assignments, etc. Instructors may contact chris.buddle [at] mcgill.ca (Associate Dean Chris Buddle) (514-398-7711) if they wish to discuss appropriate accommodations.
  • This process does not mean you cannot help students who may be unwell, perhaps by directing students to Student Services (Centennial Centre room CC1-124, 514-398-7992), or by simply being compassionate and considerate of their situation. You may be the right person to help them.
  • You are asked to include the following sentence on your course outlines for the Winter 2016 Term, perhaps alongside the other required parts of the course outline:
    • Sickness/illness during the term: Please visit Student Services (CC1-124) at Macdonald Campus if you are suffering from any mental or physical health-related issues during the term. If you need to seek accommodation for in-course assignments, for medical or other emergencies, please bring medical documentation to the Student Affairs Office (106 Laird Hall).

Any questions about this process can be directed to meline.chatoyan [at] mcgill.ca (Meline Chatoyan), at the Student Affairs Office (514-398-7925)
