Academic Advising

Laurier Brantford Academic Advisors offer advice and counsel on all Brantford campus programs of study and coach students through learning challenges and opportunities. The goals of out advising program are aligned with the goals of our core program, Foundations, and the ethos of our campus as a whole.

Contact Information:

Amy Chesworth (Acting Manager, Academic Advising - until October 2017)
P| 519.756.8228 ext. 5408

Laurier Brantford Academic Advising Centre
P| 519.756.8228 ext. 5849

Although academic advising is available within the Dean's Office, it is solely the responsibility of students to ensure that they are properly registered and meet course requirements and the requirements of the program for which they are registered. All students should review the relevant program requirements and course information carefully.

Academic Misconduct

Academic misconduct is an act by a student, or by students working on a team project, which may result in a false evaluation of the student(s), or which represents an attempt to unfairly gain an academic advantage, where the student either knew or ought reasonably to have known that it was misconduct. 

Some obvious examples of misconduct are presenting the work or ideas of others as one's own, copying answers from classmates during exams, misrepresenting the reasons for deferring an exam, and turning in papers that were wholly or partly authored by others.

If you encounter a case of academic misconduct, please complete the "Allegation of Academic Misconduct Form", discuss it with your student and provide them with a copy of the form, and forward a copy to your faculty's Associate Dean (Faculty of Human and Social Sciences: Dr. Andrew Welsh). Please reference this link for more information.

Academic Misconduct Investigation and Adjudication Process

Accessible Learning/Exam Accommodations

The Accessible Learning Centre provides academic support services to students with disabilities. Students with disabilities are accommodated to give them an equal opportunity to succeed academically and to participate fully in the university experience. It is the student’s responsibility to make initial contact with the Accessible Learning Centre to identify individual needs and to request services as well as examinations where applicable. Staff work closely with students while they liaise with faculty, campus and community professionals to determine and implement effective and appropriate academic supports to enhance student success.

Key Services and Supports 
•    Conducts preliminary screening for students without documentation who suspect they have a disability that is impacting their academic performance 
•    Liaises with faculty regarding specific student disability-related issues 
•    Establishes appropriate in-class and examination accommodations 
•    Transcribes print materials into e-text, Braille or other alternate formats 
•    Makes referrals to resource staff on and off campus

Angel Evans will contact you in advance when registered students are writing tests/exams with Accessible Learning. Depending on the type of accommodations or exam format, students may write some tests/exams with the class.

Please submit a copy of your exam (electronic or hard copy in a sealed and labeled envelope) 3 days in advance of the examination date, or earlier if possible.  The deadline is important to ensure that accommodations are made for all tests and exams booked through Accessible Learning. (Example: Accommodations may include Braille transcription or audio recordings of entire exams) 

Hard copies can be delivered to:
Angel Evans (Exams and Educational Supports Coordinator)
97 Dalhousie, room 212
P| 519.756.8228 ext. 5786

If you choose to submit the exam electronically, please e-mail to: Final exams will be requested and collected by Ruth Cole.

Please visit the ALC Website for additional information for faculty and staff. 

Contact Information:
97 Dalhousie, room 214
P| 519.756.8228 ext. 5871


If your students are unable to submit papers on time in class, they should be advised to slide the paper under your office door. Advise students to keep a copy of any paper they submit to avoid disputes later. DO NOT INSTRUCT STUDENTS TO SUBMIT PAPERS TO ANY ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE.

If you have assignments to return to your students before or after classes have ended, there are two options:

1.    Set office hours and inform students of the time and location

2.    Return the assignments at the Exam room (after student has finished writing their exam)

When returning papers, please follow FIPPA regulations. see “Privacy & Access (FIPPA)” for further information)

Assignments and Tests in the Last Week of Classes

Normally, work such as assignments or tests, due in the last week of classes will be made known to a class at the beginning of the term. In no case, after the first half of the term, shall the assignment of such work first be made known to a class. To ensure that the workload of students is not unreasonable in the last week of classes, the university sets the following limits for the final week of regularly scheduled classes of each term:

1. Assignments, projects, presentations and other evaluated work, to a maximum worth of 50 percent of the total marks available in the course, may be due for submission or presentation during the last week;
2. In a course or section with a final examination scheduled in the examination period, an in-class test or examination worth no more than 20 percent of the total marks available in the course may be administered during the last week of classes;
3. In a course or section that does not have a final examination scheduled in the examination period, no tests or examinations may be administered during the last week of classes, excepting only small quizzes and the like, worth no more than 10 percent that are part of a weekly or biweekly series of such items. 

At Risk Student Reporting Form

The At Risk Student Reporting Form is designed to:

•    Identify early in the academic year students who may be at risk of academic difficulty or failure

•    Intervene with measures that are tailored to each individual student's situation.

Once a student is identified using the form, the Academic Advisor’s in the Laurier Brantford Dean’s Office will:

•    Contact the student,
•    Work with the student to identify factors contributing to his or her academic difficulties,
•    In collaboration with appropriate academic and student services support personnel, develop a plan to help the student achieve his or her academic goals.

To access the At Risk Student Reporting Form, please click here. This section is restricted to staff and faculty. Please enter your Laurier login and password to access the early alert form.

When should you contact the CSST?
If you receive or observe threatening behaviour (email, verbal, written, writing, etc...)
If you observe or are the target of violence
If you feel uncertain about an individual's behaviour on campus at any time

If you are unsure, it is best to report your concern.

How to contact the CSST:

Directed Studies

Students may contact their instructors inquiring about setting up a Directed Studies class. Some students will test a thesis they might want to explore in grad school, some students may choose a topic that will be marketable for a future job while others choose to explore curiosities and connections they have discovered in their learning.

Between yourself (the instructor) and the student, you will discuss what you want the student to learn and negotiate the readings, assignments, and assessments expected of the student over the term. This all must be completed before the professor completes the Directed Studies form, available from Bre Carnes or Jennifer Connor. Attach a course outline to the Directed Studies form before submitting the paperwork to the appropriate Administrative Assistant (Bre Carnes or Jennifer Connor).

Students don't register for these classes on LORIS. The process involves filling out the Directed Studies form, choosing a professor with which to work, preparing an outline and getting approval from the appropriate Dean. This all must be done before the Add/Drop deadline of the semester in which you want to do the Directed Studies, so plan ahead! Once the paperwork is complete, hand it in to the appropriate faculty-where it will be signed off by the Associate Dean. Once approval is given, the paperwork is sent to Registraial Services, where the student will be manually registered into the class. It is essential that no steps are missed in the Directed Studies process. If you have any questions, please ask.

Instructors are required to provide Registrarial Services with exam information.  An email will be sent out at the beginning of the term, requesting information. Instructors must respond to this request for information regardless if a final exam is a component of their course.  Instructors with no final exam requirement must still indicate this information. 

Exams will take place Monday to Sunday.  Final exams can be a maximum length of 2.5 hours. Exams will be scheduled at 8:30am, 12:00pm, 3:30pm and 7:00pm.  Instructors will proctor their own exam(s).  You will be notified if your course has qualified for an examination proctor to assist you with your exam(s).

It is University policy to provide us with a copy of your final examination (reference in Article in the F.T. Collective Agreement or 16.1 in the CAS Collective Agreement). It is crucial that we receive your final exam for the following reasons:
-    A copy is needed to plan and organize slip day for students with examination conflicts
-    Accessible Learning requires time to prepare the exam for students registered with their office
-    A copy has proven to be helpful if an instructor is unable to attend the examination, due to unforeseen circumstances.

Further information and required examination documents (e.g. Laurier Brantford Examination Cover Sheet, and Attendance Sign-in Sheets) will be e-mailed to instructors later on in the term.

Please advise your students of the following:
•    I.D. cards (or one form of government issued photo identification) MUST be presented at every exam.
•    No cell phones or electronic devices of any kind are to be brought into exam rooms.
•    No food or drink except for clear water bottles.

Wilfrid Laurier University exam regulations are available here.

Exam & Document Retention Policy

According to Appendix A of 3.4 Data Classification & Information Management Policy “Exams, essays and other student work should be kept as long as is necessary for the student to exhaust all avenues of appeal. This is generally a period of two (2) years.

  • Further clarification from the University Secretariat’s office indicates that the two (2) year limit on retention of academic materials only pertains to students who have filed an appeal within the first six (6) weeks of finalized grades being released from the Registrar’s Office.
  • If no appeal has been filed, then retention can remain at one (1) year before shredding

Storage Location

The Part-time Collective Agreement (Article 4.2.9) states that “[…] Materials submitted by students for evaluation that have not been returned to students during the academic term shall be submitted to the University for storage within ten (10) days of the end of the academic term in which the course was taught.”

  • APAs should request that all final exams, papers, etc., not returned directly to students, be submitted to the program/departmental office to be held in safe keeping, according to University policy. If space is not available in the program/departmental office, please send to the Academic Administration Assistant for the Faculty of Human and Social Sciences, Bre Carnes.

Exam Printing

Final examination printing can be completed by the instructor or submitted to their program’s Assistant to the Program Coordinator for processing.

If you wish to print your own exams we recommend using the Printing Services website. For confidentiality concerns all exams are now to be delivered to the attention of Ruth Cole, Scheduling and Examination Coordinator.

Registrarial Services will notify you once the exams have arrived and will make arrangements via e-mail for you to pick up your exams.

Detailed information about exam printing will be circulated through email later on in the term.

    Make-Up Mid-Term Exams

    The Midterm Make-Up Days which were initiated in the Fall 2014 term were highly successful for FHSS faculty members. This process is voluntary to participate in, but based on recent conversations, by scheduling 2 midterm make-up days each term, students will have the opportunity to make up their midterm, without having to schedule a one-on-one test with their instructor. Please keep in mind, this process only applies to midterm examinations.

    The process will go as follows:

    1) Instructors will schedule and advertise all midterms on their course outlines (provided to students at the beginning of the term).

    2) If students contact you before or after the midterm (whether they know in advance they cannot make it, or an emergency comes up), it will be your discretion whether you allow that student to write on the scheduled make-up day.

    3) Midterm make-up exam days are as follows:

    - Friday, February 10th, 2017

    - Friday, March 3rd, 2017

    All midterms will run from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. in RCE004 and will be supervised by proctors (arranged via Megan Chipman)

    4) It is the instructor’s responsibility to conform the detail of the exam to the student.

    5) Please ensure you are stressing to students that they must being their WLU One Card.

    6) If you provide permission for one or more of your students to write on one of the make-up days, it is solely your responsibility to deliver the exams to Megan Chipman (located in the Research and Academic Centre, East Wing, Room 116). You will be required to provide her with:

    - A list of students writing the exam on the make-up day, as well as which exam they will be writing. This will be used for I.D. checks as the students enter the exam room

    - The appropriate number of exams – you will be required to make photocopies as necessary.

    - These items must be dropped off to Megan’s office no later than 2 days before the exam.

    - If the appropriate number of exams is not provided, or a student shows up that has not been listed (by the faculty member), the student will be denied entry.

    - Your organization is appreciated.

    7) Megan will meet with the scheduled proctors prior to the exam(s) to distribute the necessary documents. After writing the exam, proctors will be responsible for dropping off the exams (in a sealed envelope) to the Dean’s Office. On the Monday following the make-up midterm exam day, instructors are asked to return to Megan’s office to pick-up the (now completed) exams for marking. Exams cannot be sent through interoffice mail.

    By providing two midterm make-up days, instructors can easily re-schedule a student’s midterm without having to book a room, schedule a separate time, etc. We hope that in providing these dates that the rescheduling of midterms is easier.

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Megan at or via ext. 5782.

    Midterm Proctor Request

    Before requesting a midterm proctor, please consider producing two versions of your exam to eliminate the need of an empty seat between students. Provisions for proctoring are made within the Instructional Assistant (IA) contract; therefore, your IA should be utilized when possible (rather than requesting a Proctor).  Same can be said should a Graduate Student be assisting in your class.

    Please note; if your class size is less than 80 students, you are not eligible for a Proctor (unless "extraordinary circumstances" exist). Requests for a proctor must be received at least two weeks prior to the date of your midterm exam. 

    1. Submit your request via the online form “Request for a Midterm Exam Proctor” available via the 'forms' section on each Faculty website. Click here if you are part of the Faculty of Liberal Arts or click here if you are part of the Faculty of Human and Social Sciences.
    2. The Administrative Assistant (Jennifer Connor; Faculty of Liberal Arts or Bre Carnes; Faculty of Human and Social Sciences) will schedule a proctor (from the provided ‘proctor pool’) and communicate the date, time and location where the midterm is to take place with the chosen proctor.
    3. Once a proctor has accepted the offer to proctor the midterm, the Administrative Assistant will confirm all details with the instructor (regarding who will be proctoring the exam).
    4. Payroll sheets will be completed by the Administrative Assistant.  In the event the proctor does not arrive to assist in supervising the midterm exam, please contact Jennifer Connor (ext. 5894) and/or Bre Carnes (ext. 5994) immediately.

    "Slip Day" Examinations

    In all cases, students are first asked to approach their instructor with exam conflicts or change of date requests.  As written in the Undergraduate calendar, "the student may apply to the instructor or designate to be allowed to write the exam at an alternate time, ideally during the regularly scheduled examination period, but at the latest not beyond the date by which final grades for the last scheduled exam are to be submitted to the Registrar's Office.”   Many instructors prefer to reschedule their own exam session with the student.  If an agreeable solution cannot be worked out between the student and instructor, the following is in place to assist students:

    Slip Day is an exam session for students with exam conflicts for the following reasons:

    1.    Three exams within a 24 hour period
    2.    Two or more exams scheduled at the exact same time
    3.    Campus conflict (students taking courses at the Waterloo and Brantford Campus)

    These three reasons are automatically approved by Registrarial Services.  Students must complete the Laurier Brantford Final Examination Conflict Form, available through the Registrarial Services website. 

    For reasons outside of those listed above, Slip Day may also be approved through the Dean's Office.  These instances can include such things as serious illness, death in the family, etc.  If the student cannot be accommodated by the Instructor, please direct students to the Dean's Office.

    If you have a student who has been approved to write on Slip Day from the permission of Enrolment Services or the Dean's Office, you will be copied on the e-mail to the student which notifies them of the date and time they will be writing.

    We also provide specialized support services for specific learning needs including on-line consultation, conversation and academic skills practice for students who are English Language Learners, and an on-going support programme for students who are on academic probation.
