Ethical ConductPlease read the University statement on Academic and Research Misconduct. Incidents of plagiarism and/or failure to comply with the University Regulations on Academic and Research Misconduct will be reported to the Dean of Science. Sanctions and Procedures for investigation and discipline in cases of allegations of academic or research misconduct are clearly laid out in the Laurier Undergraduate Calendar.
Final Exam DateThe final exam date will be announced as early as possible (as soon as it has been scheduled by the Registrar's office). The Academic Dates section of the Calendar (Printed and Web Site Versions) clearly states the examination date period for each semester. Students must note that they are required to reserve this time in their personal calendars for the examinations. The examination period for this course is April 11, 2002 to April 30, 2002. Students who are considering registering to write MCAT, LSAT, or GMAT or a similar examination, should select a time for those examinations that occurs outside the University examination period. For additional information that describes the special circumstances for examination deferment, consult the University calendar.
