If you are unable to write a final exam because of illness or other disability or affliction, you must file an application in writing with the dean or director of your faculty/school for a deferred exam.
A deferred exam is offered under senate and faculty or school regulations in a manner prescribed by the appropriate department head.
The application must be filed within seven days of the last exam you are scheduled to write and must be accompanied, or followed shortly, by a medical certificate or an appropriate document certifying your inability to write the exam at the regular scheduled time.
Where possible, indicate the period of disability. Based on the evidence, the Dean or Director shall decide whether or not to approve the application.
When an application for a deferred examination is approved, the deferred exam will ordinarily be written within 30 working days from the end of the exam series from which the exam was deferred.
You will be notified by your faculty/school regarding the status of your deferred exam application.
The Application for Deferred Examination(s) form is located in the Forms Appendix of the Student Handbook .
