Fall 2012 – Summer 2013
A detailed letter in support of the application must be entered in the "reason(s) for deferral" section of the application on Minerva.
You must submit supporting documentation to the Engineering Student Centre (Frank Dawson Adams Building, Room 22) within one week of the missed examination.
For requests due to medical reasons, a deferral is granted only if the nature of the illness is serious enough to justify absence from the examination. The date of the missed exam and the nature of the illness must be clearly indicated on the medical certificate. Medical certificates stating "medical reasons" and illegible documents will not be accepted.
If you miss your examination for reasons other than medical reasons, you must submit supporting documentation from the appropriate authority, which covers the date of the missed exam, where applicable.
You are required to frequently verify the status of your deferred application on Minerva to determine whether any additional information is required by the Student Affairs Office, Engineering Student Centre.
You will receive an email notification once a deferred examination application decision has been made.
The supplemental/deferred examination schedule is available at www.mcgill.ca/students/exams/supdefer.
Deferred exams for courses administered by the School of Continuing Studies are offered during the next term's final examination period. The final examination schedule for School of Continuing Studies courses is available at www.mcgill.ca/conted/studentres/records/exams.
For courses offered in the Summer term, you must submit a written request (with supporting documentation) for deferred examinations to the Engineering Student Centre (FDA 22) no later than four days after the date of the missed final examination.
For courses administered by the Faculty of Engineering, the deferred examination is written during the final examination period the next time the course is offered. For non-Engineering courses, the date will be determined by Summer Studies and you will be notified via your McGill email.
The final examination schedule for Summer Studies courses is available at www.mcgill.ca/summer/finalexams.
