Request for Deferred Examination

A request for a deferred examination is completed when a student misses a final examination due to compelling medical or personal reasons. Students in Humanities may submit a request for deferred examination form and the accompanying documentation (e.g. doctor’s note) to our office. Students in a program outside of Humanities should contact their own faculty office.

It is the student’s responsibility to check on the status of their request. This may be found in the Mosaic Student Centre in the drop-down menu ‘other academic…’. Students must be available during the Deferred Exam Period (published under the Registrar’s Office Sessional Dates) and check their personal deferred exam schedule, which will be made available in the Mosaic Student Centre in the drop-down menu ‘other academic…’.

Deferred examination requests will not be granted for the purpose of travel. The final examination periods for the fall and winter terms are published well in advance of the start of the school year, and students are expected to be available for the entire examination period.

If a final examination has already been written, no special consideration will be granted.
