- Any student who has three examinations scheduled in 53
hours (excludes take home examinations) may request that one be rescheduled. Such requests are handled
by the Assistant Dean for Academic Services. It is expected
that students will sit for all examinations as scheduled. Examinations
are rescheduled by the Dean of Students Office only in extremely
limited circumstances, such as requests that relate to the health
of the student, or close family member, or death of a family member.
Any rescheduled examination will be administered on a date no earlier
than the date originally set. Tentative examination schedules are
available to students at the time of course pre-registration. Students
are therefore expected to have reviewed and considered the examination
schedule for all courses in which they enroll.
(Examinations that are rescheduled qualify for Examsoft use on a limited basis - DECEMBER and MAY ONLY). Students who reschedule an examination will be eligible to use Examsoft for the rescheduled examination provided the missed examination is rescheduled to the make-up date immediately following the originally scheduled examination (December and May exams only). Please refer to the current examination schedule to determine eligibility.
- The general policy is that exams will not be postponed for situations occurring during the semester that cause a student to lose study time. If a student experiences such a situation, he or she is encouraged to meet, as soon as possible, with the Dean of Students to discuss what options are available to the student. If properly documented, these options may include a Leave of Absence or reduction or course load. Students experiencing such situations during the semester should notify the Dean of Students, in writing, no later that the commencement of the exam period for the semester or session in which the situation occurred.
