Exam Conflicts

If you have a legitimate scheduling conflict during final exams, you must submit a  PDF icon Final Examination Conflict Form with supporting documentation at least one month before the start of the final exam period. Late submissions will not be accepted. 

 

If you have a mid-term exam and you need to reschedule it due to religious, business-related or a scheduling conflict, please submit the PDF icon Midterm Examination Conflict Form along with any supporting documentation to Client Services at least 2 weeks prior to the date of the scheduled mid-term exam(s).

 

Students who miss a mid-term exam(s) due to medical reasons must complete and submit this PDF icon Midterm Examination Conflict Form with supporting documentation within 2 business days of the date of the missed mid-term exam(s).

 

Deferrals

Deferrals for exams are granted only under exceptional circumstances. If you were unable to write your exams due to health or any other justifiable reasons, you must:

  • Apply for a deferred exam via Minerva, and then submit your supporting documentation to Client Services no later than 10 working days following the original exam date.
  • If you cannot access Minerva, you must submit a PDF icon Request for Deferral of Final Examinations to Client Services with a covering letter and supporting documentation no later than 10 working days following the date of the examination.

Summer Term Deferrals:

For the Summer session, you cannot request an exam deferral in Minerva. You must submit a PDF icon Request for Deferral of Final Examinations to Client Services.

If you are approved to defer your exam, you will receive an “L” on your transcript. If the deferred exam is not written as scheduled, the “L” grade will be changed to a “J”.
