VIII. Undergraduate Degree Regulations and Procedures

Deferred Privileges

Deferred Examination

The Schedules Section, Office of Registrarial Services, schedules and supervises deferred examinations that are two hours in length. The Schedules Section notifies departments of the deferred examination schedule and advises the students of the date, time and location of their deferred examinations. The Academic Review Sub-Committees expect students to write deferred examinations during the deferred examination period that follows the end of the semester (refer to Section III--Schedule of Dates).

Students may request an extension, or the assignment of a grade based on incomplete work, if medical or compassionate reasons prevail at the time of the scheduled examination. In this case, the student must submit a Request for Academic Consideration with documentation to Undergraduate Program Services, Office of Registrarial Services. When a deferred examination is scheduled, the department must send one paper for each student granted a deferred examination in the course, plus one extra paper for the course to the Schedules Section, Office of Registrarial Services.
