The following information is College-wide:

Email
Algonquin College provides all full-time students with an e-mail account. This is the address that will be used when the College, your professors, or
your fellow students communicate important information about your program or course events. It is your responsibility to ensure that you know how to
send and receive e-mail using your Algonquin account and to check it regularly.

Centre for Students with Disabilities (CSD)
If you are a student with a disability, it is strongly recommended that you identify your needs to the professor and the Centre for Students with
Disabilities (CSD) by the end of the first month of the semester in order that any necessary support services can be arranged for you.

Academic Integrity
Adherence to acceptable standards of academic honesty is an important aspect of the learning process at Algonquin College. Academic work
submitted by a student is evaluated on the assumption that the work presented by the student is his or her own, unless designated otherwise.  For
further details consult Algonquin College Directives
E16 (http://www.algonquincollege.com/directives/sectionE/E16.pdf)
and E43 (http://www.algonquincollege.com/directives/sectionE/E43.pdf).

Course Assessments
It is Algonquin College’s policy to give students the opportunity to complete a course assessment survey in each course that they take which solicits
their views regarding the curriculum, the professor and the facilities.  For further details consult Algonquin College Directive E38
(http://www.algonquincollege.com/directives/sectionE/E38.pdf).

Use of Electronic Devices
With the proliferation of small, personal electronic devices used for communications and data storage, Algonquin College believes there is a need to
address their use during classes and examinations. During classes, the use of such devices is disruptive and disrespectful to others. During
examinations, the use of such devices may facilitate cheating. For further details consult Algonquin College Directive E39
(http://www.algonquincollege.com/directives/sectionE/E39.pdf).
