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 2021, concurrent with exams deferred from the Winter term.

Note: If you are an Arts or Science student or a Special student during the summer AND your exam was scheduled outside of the final exam period and was held in-department, you must contact Service Point to request an exam deferral.

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 this page.

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.
