Course Resumption Update
UPDATE: All UofGH classes will resume on Monday, Nov. 20 and Tuesday, Nov. 21. Please visit guelphumber.ca/updates for more information
If the campus closes due to hazardous weather or emergency situations, we announce it through the website's homepage, local radio stations and the university's main phone line (416-798-1331).
Classes cancelled due to inclement weather may be rescheduled if students in the class agree. You are responsible for arranging any rescheduled classes and confirming classroom space is available with Registrarial Services.
Please notify your Faculty Support Officer and Program Head if you need to cancel a class. To make up for the missed class time, you can either choose to add time to the beginning or end of class or plan a make-up class. Whichever method you choose, it must meet the needs of everyone in your class. Consult with your Program Head before making a decision on how to make up the missed class time.
In an emergency situation, contact Security by dialing ext. 4000 from a University of Guelph-Humber phone or from the main phone line (416-798-1331). You can call Security free of charge from one of the yellow emergency phones by the entrance of the administrative offices on each floor or from one of the blue phones around the exterior of the campus.
To contact Security for a non-emergency, dial ext. 8500 from an on-campus phone or from the main phone line (416-798-1331).
For more information on emergency procedures, please refer to the Instructor Handbook.
When you hear a fire alarm, remain calm and evacuate the building immediately by the nearest safe exit. Do not use the elevator. Walk to your exit and close the doors behind you. Once outside the building, remain there until a staff member or the Fire Department authorizes you to return.
For students unable to submit assignments during class time, we have set up a drop box with an electronic date stamp feature in the Learning Commons on the 2nd floor. This box is checked twice daily. We will deliver student work to you in a secure manner. We ask that you inform your students of the drop box at the start of the semester.
Do not use instructor mailboxes to drop off or pick up student work or assignments.
The Ontario Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act requires the university to protect personal information by making reasonable security arrangements against the following unauthorized activities: access, collection, use, disclosure or destruction of personal information. As student tests and assignments fall under the definition of personal information, we must make reasonable security arrangements when we receive or return tests and assignments.
You must follow these guidelines whenever you return tests or assignments:
DOs for distributing tests and assignments
DON’Ts for distributing tests and assignments
We believe that timely and constructive feedback in response to student work is an essential element in the learning process. It’s critical that you provide timely feedback before the 40th class day, so that students can make informed decisions about dropping courses within deadlines.
You should return or discuss all term tests, assignments, laboratory reports, etc., with students as soon as possible before the last day of the examination period. If students need the material to prepare for the final exam, you must return or discuss it as soon as possible and no later than three days before the exam.
For more information, please refer to the University of Guelph-Humber Academic Calendar.
You must submit final grades within 7 days of your final exam. If your class does not have a final exam, you must submit final grades within 7 days of the first day of the final exam schedule.
Your Faculty Support Officer will send you a final class list after the 40th class day. We also send detailed directions for submitting grades well before the final exam period – make sure to follow the directions provided.
You can use our scanning services whenever you use multiple-choice tests for classroom assessment. We process tests and exams daily, and results are normally available 24-48 hours after you submit your request.
In some cases, you may want to use a multiple-weighted test or exam, where different sections or answers are worth different marks. Please tell your Faculty Support Officer if you will administer a multiple-weighted test or exam, so that the appropriate Scantron form can be issued. For more information on multiple-weighted tests or exams or to see an example of the format you should follow, contact your Faculty Support Officer.
It is the responsibility of the instructor to provide the Faculty Support Officer with a separate test or exam key.
Students have the right to review their final exam or final project (if there is no final exam) for up to one year after they submit the work. As a result, you must submit all graded final exams (or final assignments, if there is no final exam) to your Faculty Support Officer for storage. We store final exams or final projects for at least one year. After one year, we destroy or dispose of student work in a confidential manner.
Please contact your Faculty Support Officer for information or assistance.
If a student misses a quiz, test or midterm exam, you can evaluate the student’s eligibility for a make-up test at your discretion.
If you grant permission for any student to write a make-up test, you must inform your Faculty Support Officer of the date and time of the make-up test and provide a copy of the test. All make-up tests are written in Humber College's Test Centre room LRC2141.
The following is an overview of the process once you inform your Faculty Support Officer:
If a student misses a final examination, it is NOT at your discretion to evaluate the student’s eligibility for a deferred exam. The student MUST apply for Academic Consideration through the Registrar’s office (GH 108) and will be emailed the result of their application.
If a student has been approved for a deferred exam, they will write the exam during the deferred exam period specified by the Registrar. The Academic Advisor will communicate the decision, date and time of the deferred final exam to the Faculty Support Officer, instructor and student.
For the full policy on missed tests and exams, please see the University of Guelph-Humber Academic Calendar.
