VIII. Undergraduate Degree Regulations and Procedures

Deferred Privileges

Deferred Examination

Scheduling, Office of Registrarial Services schedules and supervises deferred examinations that are two hours in length. Scheduling 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 in which the course was taken (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 deferred examination. In this case, the student should consult with their program counsellor and may submit a "Request for Academic Consideration" form with documentation to Undergraduate Program Services, Office of Registrarial Services.
