G.6.2. Debilitating Illness and Severe Domestic Affliction

A. Prior to a Scheduled Exam:

Students must inform their faculty as soon as possible if they are unable to attend a scheduled final exam. Typically, this would be done via email to the instructor or the Dean (or designate) or as per approved faculty regulations. Students will be required to provide supporting documentation. In the case of illness/medical a completed Physician/Counsellor Statement Form is required. Letters from a physician/counsellor in lieu of a Physician/Counsellor Statement Form will not be accepted. Students are responsible for any costs associated with obtaining a medical assessment or the completion of the Physician/Counsellor Statement Form.

B. During a Scheduled Exam:

If a student experiences debilitating illness or is notified of severe domestic affliction during an examination, the student should report to the instructor of record, hand in the unfinished exam and request the exam be cancelled. Normally, students are not permitted to leave the examination due to illness/domestic affliction once 50 per cent of the examination time has passed. Students will be required to provide supporting documentation confirming the illness/domestic affliction experienced during the examination. In the case of illness, a completed Physician/Counsellor Statement Form is required. Letters from a physician/counsellor in lieu of a Physician/Counsellor Statement Form will not be accepted. Students are responsible for any costs associated with obtaining a medical assessment or the completion of the Physician/Counsellor Statement Form.

In either situation (A. or B. above), documentation must normally be provided no later than two business days after the scheduled exam. Students who do not apply for a deferred final examination within this time period will not be considered for a deferred final exam.
