Academic Policies on: Accessibility, Plagiarism and Scholastic Offences, and Accommodation for Medical Illness

All students should familiarize themselves with Western's current academic policies regarding medical accommodation, accessibility, plagiarism and scholastic offences.

Here is a link to the Academic Calendar:

Please contact the course instructor if you require material in an alternate format or if you require any other arrangements to make this course more accessible to you.

Student Accessibility Services has staff members who specialize in assisting students with various disabilities to adjust to the university environment. These disabilities include, but are not limited to, vision, hearing and mobility impairments, learning disabilities, chronic illnesses, chronic pain, and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorders.  Students who require special accommodations should make a formal request as early in the semester as possible. Please view Western's policy on Academic Accommodation for Students with Disabilities.

Students who are in emotional/mental distress should refer to Western's Health and Wellness page for lots of different resources to connect you for support.
