You may be asked to provide supporting documentation for an exemption/special request associated with your student record. This may include, but is not limited to, a prolonged absence from a course where participation is required, a missed course assessment, a deferred examination, or an appeal.
You're encouraged to submit documentation that will support your situation. Supporting documentation will depend on the reason noted in your personal statement or the explanation outlining your situation. This could be medical documentation, references, police reports, an invitation letter, or a statutory declaration — to name a few. The decision to provide supporting documentation that best suits the situation is at your, the student's, discretion. An instructor or staff member at the University of Calgary cannot require you to provide specific supporting documentation such as a medical note.
Falsification of any supporting documentation will be taken very seriously and may result in disciplinary action through the Student Non-Academic Misconduct policy.
