Attendance and Program Standards
Working Together to Plan Your Success
Your success matters! Regular, punctual attendance, and active participation in scheduled classes, field and clinical placements, labs and any on-campus and off-campus activities scheduled by your program will help you to understand and master the learning complexities of your program.
If extenuating, unplanned circumstances require you to miss a class or an assessment, please note that it is your responsibility to follow up with individual faculty members prior to the class/assessment and access any missed information.
Attendance for Evaluations
Evaluations are critical components of each course and your overall success in your program. It is your responsibility to attend all evaluations (e.g. test, exam, presentation, etc...). If there is a concerning pattern of absence from evaluations across your program, you may be asked to meet with the Program Coordinator and/or Student Advisor to discuss strategies for success.
While circumstances such as religious holidays and academic accommodations may necessitate rescheduling of evaluations and will be accommodated, please note that there will be no special arrangements made for rescheduling evaluations due to personal conflicts such as work, commuting, or vacation plans.
- To communicate the dates of each evaluation at the beginning of each semester through the Instructional Plan.
- To communicate, in writing, any unplanned extenuating circumstances that may require changes to the course schedule.
- As per the Religious Holiday Procedure, provide alternative evaluation arrangements for missed evaluations due to recognized religious holidays as defined by the College Employer Council.
- To provide all accommodations requested by Accessible Learning.
- To consider alternative evaluation requests in good faith and examine the unique circumstances (e.g., unexpected family obligations, personal emergencies, etc...) and collaboratively determine an appropriate solution.
- Note, do not request doctor's notes from students.
- To review the instructional plan and familiarize with the dates of evaluation.
- As per the Religious Holiday Procedure, inform your faculty member in writing that the religious holiday defined by the College Employer Council will occur during the semester and may require considerations for evaluations to be rescheduled.
- If you must be absent from any scheduled evaluation, report your absence on the Student Portal using the procedure below. You must do this prior to the start of the evaluation or risk receiving a mark of zero.
How to Report Absences on the Student Portal
- Log into the Student Portal and click on the 'Absence tab'.
- Indicate whether or not there is an assessment scheduled on that day by clicking 'Yes or No', as well as the reason for the absence (illness or other).
- Click 'Continue' to report the absence.
- Click 'I agree' to confirm the absence.
- You will receive a confirmation email that your absence has been recorded.
Important! Please note the following:
- The earliest you can record an absence for a particular day, is after 8:00 p.m. the day before. You must report each day you are absent.
- The Absence Recording System will show you as being absent for the day, starting from the time that you recorded the absence. For example, if you record your absence on a specific day at 11:00 a.m., the system will show you as being absent for all classes starting after 11:00 a.m. that day.
- If you are going to be present for any other classes on the day for which you recorded an absence, please let the faculty member know by attending or following up by eConestoga or college email.
- As soon as possible, email the faculty member associated with the evaluation you missed and arrange for appropriate follow-up.
Documentation for Absences
Conestoga recognizes that unexpected circumstances, such as brief illness, do arise during the term. As a visit to a health practitioner may not be necessary or possible, we do not ask you to provide a doctor's note except in exceptional circumstances.
If the evaluation cannot be rescheduled, (e.g., experiential activity, lab, or a group presentation) your professor may provide you with a revised assignment or allocate its marks to another evaluation item, so long as the combined total does not exceed 40% of the course grade. This will be communicated to you by email.
Attendance - Program Standard
In the case of unforeseen circumstances that result in late arrival or early departure, whenever possible, students are expected to communicate this in advance with their faculty. Otherwise, students who arrive late for a scheduled class may be counted as absent after 20 minutes from the start of the class. Students who leave more than 20 minutes before the end of class may be counted as absent.
The School of Trades and Apprenticeship uses a 'flag' system to track unauthorized absences. As a result, attendance issues may be flagged during the program. Students run the risk of being ineligible for supplemental assessment opportunities due to poor attendance as well as possible discontinuance in the program.
This program standard applies to both on-line and in-person classes.
What is Academic Integrity?
Having academic integrity means acting fairly and honestly when engaging in academic activities.
By having and applying an Academic Offences Policy and Procedure, Conestoga ensures graduates complete their studies fairly and honestly through hard work and dedication, and thus are well-prepared for their future careers.
Conestoga facilitates access to print, media, and electronic resources to support and enrich learning, teaching, and research in compliance with the following:
Plagiarism is submitting or presenting work of another person(s)/organization in whole or substantial part as one's own without proper citation and referencing.
Required Supplies and Texts
Faculty members are responsible for distributing a suggested minimum tool list, where applicable. Texts required for each course are included on the pertinent course outline. A Personal Booklist is available through the Conestoga Bookstore once program schedules are issued.
Academic Progress Through the Program
The college's approach to academic progression is governed by the Promotion Decision Procedure.
A student's academic achievement results in a promotion decision, such as eligible to continue, graduate, and discontinued.
Progress from one level to the next in a program is dependent upon the successful completion of courses and/or meeting program promotion standards.
Academic Standing and Promotion Requirements – Program Standard
Students are responsible to ensure they have fulfilled the program design requirements necessary to graduate. If for any reason a student is concerned about their academic progress, they should arrange to meet with a full-time faculty member or the program coordinator.
Students must achieve a minimum passing grade of 55% in all courses, except for courses that align with apprenticeship, which have the minimum passing grade of 70%. Failure or withdrawal from any course(s) may result in the student not being promoted to the next academic level, if applicable.
If a student withdraws from the program for any reason, they have a maximum of five years from their original start date in order to complete the program requirements and earn the related and current certificate or diploma. If the program design changes significantly during the five year timeframe it may be necessary to fulfill additional program requirements.
Common Academic Decisions
At the end of each level / semester, the program team reviews students' grades through a promotion meeting which includes the program chair, program coordinator and relevant faculty. Below are the most common academic decisions issued by the program team determined during this meeting:
Eligible to Continue
Students who pass all courses, and complete their electives, are eligible to continue in the program. Students who fail any course(s) and are unable to make up the course(s) until the following year, will also be eligible to continue as long as they meet all prerequisites.
Students who have not successfully completed all of the required courses for the semester or the program may be eligible to complete work or write a supplemental assessment in order to complete the requirements of the level or program. Only one supplemental assessment will be permitted per semester in the core courses.
Supplemental Assessment: Students who have failed any courses may request a supplemental assessment (a "make-up"). It is the student's responsibility to check the grade postings. It is not the responsibility of the professor to contact the student and offer a supplemental. Supplemental assessments may be approved by the program team, if the course is supplemental-eligible and if the following academic criteria is met by the student.
- Failing grade must be no less than 50%. If the minimum passing grade for the course is 60% or higher, the minimum failing grade must be no less than 10% below that grade.
- Attended 80% or more of the specific course.
- Passed at least one formal evaluation in the course.
- Has no registered academic offence class in which the supplemental is being requested. (Warnings do not constitute an academic offence.)
The test must be completed within three weeks from the end of the semester. To register for a supplemental, the student must meet with the applicable faculty and complete an Authorization for Supplemental form and submit the appropriate non-refundable fee ($40.00) to the Registrar's Office. The student must provide proof of fee payment at the time of the supplemental exam.
Failure of the supplemental will result in no change to the original course grade. Successful completion of the supplemental evaluation will result in the minimum passing grade being awarded. The final grade as a result of the supplemental will be automatic and is ineligible for appeal.
For more information visit the College Policies, Procedures, Practices and Guidelines webpage then click on the Academic Administration side tab and search for the document entitled Clearance of Academic Deficiency.
Special Timetable – Same Level
Special timetable status applies to students who are not promoted to the next level of the program or allowed to graduate due to missing / failed course(s). Students are allowed to return to the program to complete and / or repeat the missing / failed course(s).
NOTE: A special timetable cannot be used for the first level of a program.
Discontinuance and Withdrawals
If a student fails an elective course they must make up the credits prior to the completion of the program. If the failed course(s) occurs in the final semester of the program, the student has five years from their original start date in the program to earn the missing credits.
If a student fails a core course, i.e. non-elective, they may be placed on a special timetable, may be discontinued in the program or may not be eligible to continue until the failed courses are completed. Students may also be discontinued from a program based on misconduct, or in some sponsored programs, for lack of attendance.
Students who wish to terminate their studies must officially withdraw from their program in writing by completing the Withdrawal Form located on the Student Portal. Students who do not officially withdraw are still liable for outstanding fees and may not be eligible for a refund. Non-attendance does not constitute official withdrawal and academic records may reflect failures.
Discontinuance: Registered but Did Not Attend (DNA)
A missed course, DNA, will be considered a course failure (mark of "F") for purposes of discontinuance. Refer to the Student Guide for the refund deadline.
Readmission - Voluntary Withdrawal or Absent students
A student who voluntarily withdrew or was absent from Level 1, prior to the Program Withdrawal Without Academic Penalty Date, will be required to reapply to the program through Ontario College Application Service (OCAS).
A student who voluntarily withdrew or was absent from the program, following the completion of Level 1 must reapply to the program through the Registrar's Office.
Readmission is not guaranteed and is subject to space availability within the program.
A student may be readmitted to the program level consistent with the program courses previously completed at the discretion of the Program Coordinator.
A student has a maximum of five years from their original start date to complete the program requirements and earn the related and current certificate or diploma. If there are program design changes during the five year timeframe it may be necessary to fulfill additional program requirements.
– Discontinued students
discontinued student may apply to return to the program as a part-time student
for a one-year period. If accepted, the academic program team will determine an appropriate course load for each term, up to a maximum of three failed and/or missed courses, including any general education courses. If the part-time
student obtains a passing grade in all their courses over the one-year period,
they can apply for readmission as a full-time student.
is not guaranteed and is subject to space availability within the program.
students cannot graduate from this program without first applying and being
granted readmission to the program.
A student has a maximum of five years from their original start date to complete the program requirements and earn the related and current certificate or diploma. If there are program design changes during the five year timeframe it may be necessary to fulfill additional program requirements.
The Academic Program Team reserves the right to modify the implementation of the above, in individual cases, due to extenuating circumstances.
Students are eligible to graduate upon completion of all academic requirements in their program of study, including co-op work terms if applicable. Students can visit their Student Portal to confirm they have met all program requirements including Conestoga 101 and General Education courses as required.
Students are expected to respond to their invitation to graduate through their Student Portal. Convocation ceremonies are held in the Winter, Spring and Fall of each academic year. Students, who take longer than the advertised program length, are responsible for completing any new or additional courses due to a program design change. Students who complete their program after the scheduled completion date are required to fill out an Application to Graduate form and submit it with payment to the Registrar's Office. Students who have withdrawn and then return to the college will be placed in the current program design and must meet all requirements to graduate. Rules surrounding graduating with merit are outlined on the academic recognition section of Conestoga's website.
Equipment and Facility Information
Classrooms, Computer Labs and Shop Access
Generally, no food is permitted in any classroom, computer lab or shop. In some areas, and at the discretion of faculty, beverages may be permitted in unbreakable, re-sealable containers; however, they must be kept away from any computers or other sensitive equipment.
Access to shops and use of equipment outside of regularly scheduled class times is not permitted without written permission from the faculty and the presence of either the faculty or technologist. For safety reasons, it is recommended that a minimum of 3 people be present at all times.
Students are required to sign a Conestoga College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning (CCITAL) Acknowledgment of Safety Training and Responsibilities Form (if applicable to program), which will be provided by the faculty at the start of the program.
In situations where an individual's behavior, whether or not it is suspected to be the result of substance use, is deemed to pose a risk to their own safety or the safety of others, the individual's faculty member or supervisor has the right to limit participation in academic or workplace activities.
Conestoga's Substance Use Guidelines were developed to ensure that the college is in compliance with provincial and federal legislation regulating the use of both legal and illegal substances.
The college recognizes the risks associated with substance use and is committed to providing education on harm-reductive use and prevention as well as individualized support for members of our college community.
Machine Operation and Safety
Machine operation and safety requirements will be provided by the faculty responsible for the delivery of each course, as necessary. Students will sign-off after they have received safety training relevant to the machinery in use. Students must not use any equipment for which they have not received training or which they do not feel comfortable using.
A student who does not follow appropriate safety measures and puts themself and/or others at risk, may be asked to leave the shop by the faculty, technologist or staff. It will be the student's responsibility to make up for the content missed while away from the shop.
Physical Protection / Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
For classes with a shop component, the following are the minimum PPE requirements:
- CSA-approved (Omega Symbol required) steel toe work boots or shoes
- CSA-approved clear-lensed safety glasses
- Conestoga-approved crested coveralls
Other physical protection requirements in the shop include:
- Long pants must be worn (shorts or capris are not permitted)
- Coveralls, shop coats or business uniforms (shirts tucked in) must be worn. No hooded sweatshirts are permitted.
- Long hair must be tied back
- No rings, bracelets or loose jewelry
Any additional personal protective equipment requirements will be provided by the faculty responsible for the delivery of each course. Faculty and staff will monitor the student's compliance with college and class specific safety requirements and may restrict access to the shops if safety policy and requirements are not followed.
Use of Electronic Devices in Classrooms and Labs
Electronic devices may be used for learning or instructional purposes. Professors or technologists may request devices be put away when a safety issue or distraction occurs. Devices used for accommodations are always welcome. Unauthorized devices used in a testing situation constitutes an academic offence and the Academic Offences Procedure will be applied in this situation.
The Student Engagement Department is here to help you transition to the Conestoga College experience, connect with your community, and build your skills.
Start your college experience by completing Conestoga 101 (CON0101) on eConestoga, a mandatory course for all new full-time students that will take you approximately one hour to complete. CON0101 provides an overview of the supports, services, and opportunities available to you throughout your time at Conestoga. Make sure you complete it early on in the term, as it contains valuable information that will help you transition to Conestoga.
Student feedback is an essential component of our continuous improvement process. Our opportunities for student feedback include:
Ontario College Student Experience Survey
All college programs in the province are evaluated using the Ontario College Student Experience Survey. This survey is conducted each academic year in select classes - every student is invited to participate in each year of their program. Strategic goals to improve the programs are developed from these results. This data and other data specific to the campus and the program/school are collected so that Conestoga College can continually improve quality.
Student Appraisal of Teaching (SAT)
The Student Appraisal of Teaching (SAT) allows direct feedback from students on teaching for a particular course. Completion of the SAT forms give teachers and academic managers valuable information to use for the improvement of teaching at Conestoga.
The SAT process has two components: the Early Course Check-in and the Full-SAT. The Early Course Check-in is 8-12 questions, occurs during week 10 of classes and provides early feedback to faculty about the student experience within their classroom. The Full-SAT is 43 questions and occurs late in the semester; a summary of the results goes to the faculty member and their academic manager. Typically, about one-quarter of the faculty is appraised per term. All full-time faculty have a SAT review at least once every two years. Part-time faculty may be reviewed more frequently.
Program Advisory Committees (PACs)
Program Advisory Committees (PACs) provide the necessary link between Conestoga and the community it serves. PACs operate in an advisory capacity to Conestoga administration with the objective to keep Conestoga responsive to current and future workforce needs, trends or opportunities in industry and the marketplace.
All post-secondary education programs of study at Conestoga, both full-time and part-time, which lead to an employment related credential, or are approved by the Ministry of Colleges and Universities (MCU), will be associated with a PAC, with the exception of apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship programs. For any program not leading to an employment related credential, such as foundation programs, PACs are optional.
At the beginning of each year, the coordinator(s) of the program will ask for student volunteers. The coordinator(s) will select which student(s) will represent the program at PAC. Student attendees are important members of the PAC and are expected to be present at all meetings and are responsible for preparing and submitting a report based on guidelines provided by the program coordinator.
Students who participate in PACs will receive credit on their Co-Curricular Record (CCR) . Your CCR is an official document, complementary to your academic transcript, which recognizes and records learning that you have achieved through approved Co-curricular experiences at Conestoga.
Activities within Conestoga's Co-Curricular Portal (CCP) enhance students' growth and development outside the classroom. The Co-Curricular Record is an official document, complementary to an academic transcript, which recognizes and records learning that has been achieved through approved co-curricular experiences at Conestoga College.
Conestoga Policies and Procedures
