A. Prior to a Scheduled Final 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, the Dean (or designate) or as per approved faculty regulations. Students will be required to provide supporting documentation (for more information, see M.1. Supporting Documentation and the Use of a Statutory Declaration). Students are responsible for any costs that may be associated with obtaining supporting documentation.
B. During a Scheduled Exam:
If a crisis/illness occurs during an examination that prevents a student from continuing with the exam, the student must report to the course instructor (or equivalent), hand in the unfinished exam and request the exam be cancelled. Normally, students are not permitted to request a cancellation of their examination once 50 per cent of the examination time has passed. Students will be required to provide supporting documentation confirming the illness/crisis experienced during the examination.
In either situation (A. or B. above), the application and supporting 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.
