Rescheduling Exams

Once posted, exam dates/times cannot be changed without the consent of the instructor and all the students in a class. Students are responsible for attending final exams on their scheduled dates. The university will not accommodate a request to reschedule an exam unless it falls under one of the following exceptions:

Two exams at the same time is a valid conflict. Two exams on one day does not constitute an exam conflict. If you have a valid conflict, contact Student Central immediately.

One night exam must be included to have three or more exams in a row. Examples of three exams in a row (24-hour period) would be:

  • 9:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m., and 7:00 p.m. (all in the same day)
  • or 2:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m., and 9:00 a.m. (the next day)
  • or 7:00 p.m., 9:00 a.m. (the following day), and then 2:00 p.m.

If you have a valid conflict, contact Student Central immediately.

A student who is absent from a final examination through no fault of his or her own, for medical, compassionate, or other valid reasons, may apply for a deferred exam. Such application must be made within three business days of the missed examination and be accompanied by supporting documentary evidence.

Students whose religious practices prohibit the writing of exams on religious holidays can apply to have their religious conflicts accommodated on an alternate date.

The following steps must be followed:

  1. You must apply to the Examination office at least three weeks prior to the start of the exam period by submitting an application through their exam channel in PAWS. This allows us time to contact the instructor, set a new date and book an exam room.
  2. You must also print and fill out and sign the Declaration to Secrecy form and bring it to Student Central in the Administration building.
  3. You must also provide a current letter of reference from your religious authority and bring it to Student Central in the Administration building. The letter of reference needs to state that you are a member in good standing and a brief explanation of why and which dates you cannot write exams.

Once all the forms and your letter of reference have been received and approved, your instructor will be contacted and we will set an alternate date for you to write your exam which will be as close as possible to the actual date of the exam. You will then be contacted by the examinations department and informed of your new date.

Exam accommodations depends on the recommendations made by the student’s physician or psycho-educational assessment. There are Deadlines for Requesting Accommodations so make your request with Disability Services for Students as early in the term as possible.

Deferred and Supplemental Exams

Deferred exams: a student who is absent from a final examination through no fault of his or her own, for medical, compassionate, or other valid reasons, may apply to the college in which they are registered for a deferred exam. Application must be made within three business days of the missed examination and be accompanied by supporting documentary evidence.

Supplemental exams: a student who fails a final examination may be granted a supplemental examination under regulations established by each college.

Special deferred and supplementals: the college may, under extenuating circumstances, grant a special deferred or supplemental examination to a student who submits satisfactory evidence of inability to be present at the deferred or supplemental examination.

Cost

The non-refundable fee for all supplemental and deferred exams is chargedwhen a student's application to write the exam is granted. In order to avoid interest charges, payment must be made prior to the last working day of the month in which approval for the examination is received.
