Deferred Final Exam Information

In light of the tragedy that has impacted the University of Calgary family, three options are being provided for students who are not able to write during their originally scheduled exam time:

    • Use the regular deferral dates: Wednesday, May 14–Friday, May 16
    • Use the alternate exam period which will be Wednesday, April 30–Saturday, May 3
    • Use an extended deferral date, Monday, June 23–Wednesday, June 25

If none of the options mentioned above are applicable, students will be assisted on an individual basis.
The procedure to request an exam deferral has been simplified and will be coordinated through Enrolment Services (deferral form). Enrolment Services will also provide extended hours on April 16–17 and from April 21–25, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. to assist students with deferral requests and exam related questions (MacKimmie Block 117) or via email at Students may also call (403) 210-7625.

Academic Integrity Bags - Final Exams

The University of Calgary is piloting a new program that empowers students to help enforce academic integrity. During the upcoming semester examination period, students who are writing exams in the Red, Gold, or Auxiliary Gymnasiums will be provided with a large clear plastic bag for their personal valuables.

The plastic bag is meant for small items of value, like a wallet, phone, tablet, or laptop, but could easily fit a textbook. All electronics will be required to be fully shut down and bags should be returned at the end of the exam for re-use.

It is recommended that students leave their larger backpacks at home, in a locker, or at an alternate safe location. Coats may be placed on the back of chairs, but pockets should be emptied and items placed in the clear bags.
