  1. TAs must deliver all marked work, mid-term tests, assignments and final exams IN PERSON to the instructor.
  2. Instructors keep marked work not picked up by students for one year or deliver it to the appropriate department front office to be held; not including final exams, (see #3 below).
  3. The instructor must deliver all marked final exams and completed cover sheet IN PERSON to the Exams Coordinator at the Office of the Registrar, unless alternative arrangements have been made in agreement with department office staff.
  4. “Campus mail must not be used to transport students’ completed exams, graded or otherwise” (FAS/RO). Marked work and final exams MUST NOT be sent by Canada Post, campus mail or courier, or scanned/emailed under any circumstances.

Note: SCANTRON sheets are not permitted to leave the campus under any circumstances because Scantron machines are located on the St. George campus.

If an emergency arises and a TA cannot deliver all marked work in person to the instructor, the TA may request to deliver the tests or exams in person to an Anthropology department staff member to hold for pick up by the instructor.
