Exam Regulations

Please consult the Evaluation of Student Learning section of the academic regulations for undergraduate studies, as well as related sections regarding the grading system and academic standing. 

Exam Deferrals

See the general exam schedule for deferred exams.

See the deferred final exam schedule for summer 2019 courses here.

See the deferred exam schedule for any other terms (fall 2018, winter 2019 and fall 2019) here.

The Student Services Centre (SSC) approves and manages the deferred mid-term and final exams of undergraduate students for ADM courses. Students have five (5) business days after the exam to provide the SSC with their deferral request. 

Professors are responsible for the approval of absences during quizzes and the late submission of written assignments.

Upon review of your exam schedule, please note that we only accept to defer an exam for the following reasons:

  1. Exam conflicts:
    1. two exams on the same date and at the same time, or 
    2. three, 3-hour exams scheduled on the same date, between 8:30 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. that day.
    3. take-home exams are not considered within the exam conflicts listed above.
  2. Medical reasons that must be justified (see academic regulations); or
  3. Death of a member of immediate family, justified by a death certificate.

Travel, employment and misreading the examination schedule are not acceptable reasons for deferring an exam.

To defer an exam in an ADM course, please complete the deferred exam application, make sure your physician completes the medical certificate document, and submit both in person at DMS 1100, the Student Services Centre.

For a course from another faculty, please contact the faculty in question and/or the professor.

Students who write an examination may not appeal their final grades due to one of the reasons mentioned above.
