Academic Integrity Remediation

According to the Academic Integrity Procedure for Sheridan College, the Library & Learning Services' Academic Integrity Remediation (AIR) process can be used by faculty as part of a Level 1 academic integrity (AI) sanction. Remediation provides students with the opportunity to learn more about Sheridan’s expectations for academic integrity and helps them identify how to avoid engaging in a future breach.

All Library Learning Commons are currently closed, until further notice. All AIR appointments are now offered online, by booking an appointment through sheridan.tutorocean.com. Once you book your appointment, an Academic Integrity Remediation Specialist will contact you through your Sheridan email with further instructions for your appointment.

The Process

Remediation is tracked through the Student Information System.
After being notified of the sanction, students have 45 days to complete remediation.
Students may have the opportunity to re-submit their work at the discretion of faculty after successful completion of remediation.

Here's how students complete the AIR process:

  1. Faculty notify student of sanction, and refer students to Tutoring to book a remediation appointment with an Academic Integrity Remediation Specialist.

  2. After receiving notification of the sanction, students will have 45 days to meet with an Academic Integrity Remediation Specialist. Academic Integrity Remediation Specialists are available for appointments during daytime hours, Monday-Friday.

  3. The Academic Integrity Remediation Specialist will register the student in the Academic Integrity Tutorial on SLATE. Students must complete this tutorial prior to their appointment with the Academic Integrity Remediation Specialist. The tutorial will take approximately one hour to complete.

  4. The Academic Integrity Remediation Specialist will meet with students for their appointment to answer any questions about the tutorial, academic integrity, research and citation practices.

  5. Students will complete a quiz during the appointment based on the Academic Integrity Tutorial.

  6. To pass remediation, students will need to complete a formal quiz, and obtain at least 80% or higher. Faculty will receive an email if students do not complete remediation within 45 days.

  7. Faculty will receive an email if students do not complete remediation within 45 days. Faculty may re-assess the sanction according to the Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. See Sheridan College’s Academic Integrity Policy.

Completion of remediation will be tracked through the Student Information System (i.e. PeopleSoft).
