G.7 Deferral of Term Work

Term work is defined as any papers, projects, tests or other assignments that are due on or prior to the last day of the term.

Term Work due Before the End of Lectures:

Instructors, subject to any established departmental or faculty procedures, may establish their own deadlines for the completion of term work. Students must be made aware of any departmental or faculty procedures on the course outline.

Term Work due After the End of the Term:

Should a request to defer term work exceed the end of the term, a Deferral of Term Work form must be completed. Deferrals are granted at the discretion of the Dean (or designate) and are normally granted for 30 days beyond the end of term. Should circumstances warrant, the maximum time that may be granted for a deferral of term work is one additional term. Application forms are available at:

See section E.3 Attendance for additional information regarding absences from tests.
