3.2.8 Deferral of Term Work

Students who are not able to complete assignments or other required coursework, including exams, due to unforeseen circumstances by the dates published in the course outline should contact their instructor to request an extension, prior to the original deadline. Students will be required to provide documentation to support their request. Should a student require an extension that is beyond five days after the last day of lectures, the student must apply for a Deferral of Term Work. Deferrals are not guaranteed, will not exceed 30 days past the last day of lectures, and will be granted at the discretion of the Associate Dean, or delegate. In exceptional cases where students have been granted a deferral of term work with a deadline that extends into the following semester, they will be permitted to begin subsequent courses, but if the deferral of term work is not successfully completed by the agreed upon deadline, they will be withdrawn from those classes. Should a student not meet the agreed upon deadline on an approved Deferral of Term Work, they will receive a zero on that course component.
