Exam deferrals

You may request to write a deferred exam if you have missed your exam due to illness or other extenuating circumstances. Requests due to minor illnesses (cold), minor personal matters, or scheduling conflicts (travel plans) will not be approved. Deferral requests for final exams that are scheduled on the official summer final exam dates posted above should be submitted through Minerva. All deferred formal final exams will be held in August, concurrent with exams deferred from the Winter term.

More details on deferred exams and deferral application dates are available on the examinations website.

Important: For courses administered by the Faculty of Education, deferred examinations will not be permitted; however, in exceptional circumstances, the student may be granted permission to withdraw from the course, without refund. Students from the Faculty of Engineering are to follow the instructions and deadlines found on the Faculty's website.

Supplemental Exams

There are no supplemental exams during summer sessions (May, June, July) for courses that have been taken during one of these three sessions.
