FAQs

Face-to-face learning

Students enrolled in face-to-face courses are expected to attend class in-person.  If students miss class, they are responsible for getting notes from classmates.  Instructors are not responsible for providing alternate delivery to students who do not attend in person.  If there are grades awarded during class activities, absent students may miss the opportunity to earn these grades unless a deferral request is approved (See below). 

Please note that in order to attend classes with an in-person component, students must be compliant with the University of Calgary Vaccine Directive Any student who fails to comply with the requirements of this directive will be deemed ineligible to register for in-person courses and thus will be-registered from any course with an in-person component.

Students who are compliant with the Vaccine Directive, but who foresee issues with attending face-to-face classes regularly should enroll in online sections of the course (if available), or consult their academic advisor regarding modifying their schedule and registration plan.  It is important to note that if the course is required in the program, it will have to be completed in whatever mode it is offered.  Please see below for more information pertaining to each program.
