University of Calgary Calendar 2018-2019 Academic Regulations G. Examinations and Tests G.4 Scheduling of Examinations
G.4 Scheduling of Examinations

All final examinations must be scheduled by the Registrar, except:

  • final examinations which are take-home examinations, oral examinations or terminal projects.
  • final examinations in Law, Medicine (MD program only) and Veterinary Medicine, which are scheduled by each Faculty. The Faculty of Environmental Design also schedules its own final exams except for courses in the Architectural Studies minor.

Common mid-year tests in courses that run over more than one term must occur during the final examination period, and must be scheduled by the Registrar, except:

  • mid-year tests that are take-home or oral tests, or mid-term projects.
  • mid-year tests in Law, Medicine (MD program only) and Veterinary Medicine, which are scheduled by each Faculty. The Faculty of Environmental Design also schedules its own mid-year tests except for courses in the Architectural Studies minor.

In all Faculties, unscheduled examinations, assignments, tests, etc., may not be held by instructors after the last day of classes, i.e., during the study break or the examination period at the end of each term. Any such testing should be conducted by the instructor during the regular class periods before the end of a term. (See G.1 Scheduling of Tests for weighting of tests during the last 14 calendar days of the standard term.)

Requests for pre-assignment of examinations to special dates for whatever cause or reason will not be accommodated. Similarly, requests for changes to the dates of scheduled examinations will not be approved. Student votes and petitions to change a scheduled final examination will not be considered as these have been found to result in undue pressure on students not in agreement with an altered examination schedule.

The Examinations Timetable for Registrar-scheduled examinations will be published approximately one month after the start of the term and will be available via MyUofC in the online Student Centre and at the Enrolment Services website: ucalgary.ca/registrar/exams.
