Mercury Evaluation Period

Regular Evaluation Period

The regular course evaluation period for regularly scheduled courses will be the same across the University. The time period normally runs for three to four weeks, and will end the day before the start of the examination period.

Extended Evaluation Period

Academic units, with the prior approval of the Dean, now have the option of extending the course evaluation period to no later than the last day of exams.  Units wishing to follow this schedule should inform the TLS Mercury System Administrator no later than two months after the beginning of the fall or winter term. Click here to view the following units that are participating in the extended course evaluation period.

Custom Evaluation Period

For courses that do not follow the regular term calendar (e.g.: intensive courses), it is possible for individual questionnaires to have their own start and end dates in order to have an appropriate evaluation period. Please contact your Mercury Departmental Liaison at the beginning of each term so they can insert the appropriate dates.
