About exams

Exam deferral - valid conflicts

The final exam date for each course is posted in the course schedule. You may see that an exam conflicts with an upcoming event. Valid exam conflicts include:

  • Participation in an inter-university, provincial, inter-provincial, national or an international athletic event
  • Participation in an inter-university, provincial, inter-provincial, national or international scholastic event
  • Religious obligations as per interfaith calendar (PDF)
  • A known medical condition

Travel plans are not an acceptable reason to miss an exam.

If you face one of these valid exam conflicts, you can apply to defer your exam. You must file your deferral request 20 working days prior to the date of the scheduled exam. Requests for deferred examinations must be made to your Program Coordinator.

Deferred examinations will normally take place within 30 working days from the end of the examination series from which the examination was deferred. Writing a make-up test at your convenience may not be an option. Please note that students must remain available until all exam and test obligations have been fulfilled.

Unable to complete an exam

If you become ill during the course of an examination and you are unable to continue, you must report at once to the chief invigilator, submit the examination and indicate either that you wish to submit your examination as: (1) completed; or (2) not completed and with the right to request a deferred examination.

Only students who do not complete the examination and who notify the chief invigilator of the reason they cannot complete the examination shall be eligible to apply for a deferred examination. Please visit Final Examination and Final Grade Policy (PDF) or contact your Program Coordinator for more information.

Documentation verifying your illness may be required.

Deferred exams

If a student misses a final examination for medical, compassionate or religious reasons, they may be granted a deferred examination.

The final exam date for each course is posted in the course schedule. You may see that an exam conflicts with an upcoming event. Valid exam conflicts include:

  • Participation in an inter-university, provincial, inter-provincial, national or international athletic event
  • Participation in an inter-university, provincial, inter-provincial, national or international scholastic event
  • Religious obligations as per interfaith calendar (PDF)
  • A known medical condition

If you face one of these valid exam conflicts, you can apply to defer your exam. You must file your deferral request 20 working days prior to the date of the scheduled exam. Requests for deferred examinations are made to the Program Coordinator.

Deferred examinations will normally take place within 30 working days from the end of the examination series from which the examination was deferred. Writing a make-up test at your convenience may not be an option. Please note that you must remain available until all exam and test obligations have been fulfilled.

If you miss a final examination for medical or compassionate reasons, you may be granted a deferred examination. Applications for a deferred examination after the examination has been missed must be filed within 48 hours of the date of the missed examination. The application for a deferred examination must be submitted to your Program Coordinator. A medical certificate or other appropriate documentation may be required.

You must submit the request for a Deferred Exam Form (PDF) to the Program Coordinator.

You will be informed of the time and place of the new exam (instructors will create a new set of exam questions for these students).

Once the exam has been completed the instructors will mark and calculate the final grade. A Change of Grade form will be completed at this time if an incomplete final grade has been posted to Aurora.

Your grades

Grade structure

Final grades in most courses are expressed as letters, ranging from F, the lowest grade, to A+, the highest. For Intensive Programming, the lowest passing grade is C. Each letter grade has an assigned numerical value which is used to calculate grade point average (GPA). Some courses are graded on a Pass/ Fail basis, and because no numerical value is assigned to these courses, they do not affect a student’s GPA. Courses graded in this manner are clearly identified in course descriptions and program outlines.

Final grade appeals

  • Final Grade appeals must be made within 15 working days of the first day of classes for the subsequent consecutive term.
  • Prior to submitting a formal appeal, students are encouraged to meet with their course instructor and/or program coordinator to seek resolution on the matter. The Instructor may provide valuable feedback on the assigned grade. This may result in a change in grade.
  • If no resolution is found then formal final grade appeal must be filed with Extended Education Student and Instructor Services. An application fee will apply; the fee is refundable for any final grade that is changed; it should be noted that final grades cannot be lowered.
  • Required documentation:
    • Completed Extended Education Final Grade Appeals Form (PDF) including a rationale that must be provided with the appeal to identify issues such as error(s) in mark tabulation or other procedural irregularities in assigning the final grade
    • A Cover Letter outlining concerns related to the appeal
    • Proof of payment

Incomplete submissions will not be considered.

Grade appeal outcomes

You can expect to receive the decision within 10 business days after submission of a completed Extended Education Final Grade Appeal form, proof of payment, and a cover letter outlining concerns related to the appeal.

Course extensions and grades

Course extensions for term work may be granted at the discretion of the Program Coordinator. As grades must be entered into Banner, a grade of “F I” will be entered until a grade change is authorized.

Students are required to complete all assignments, quizzes, tests and exams as identified in the course outlines. If, by the end of the term, the student requires additional time to complete their course work then the student may fill in the Request for Time Extension for Completion of Term Work Form (PDF) and submit it to their Program Coordinator for approval. This does not apply to Final Exams (see Deferred Exams).

Withdrawal and refunds

Students can request to withdraw from an Intensive Program Package at any time prior to the scheduled start date of classes. The application fee and $2,000 deposit are not refundable.

An Authorized Withdrawal Form must be submitted to the Student and Instructor Services or Program Coordinator and approved by the Dean’s Office. Supporting documentation may be required.

Authorized Withdrawals are not concurrent with fee refunds. Refund requests must be submitted separately and will be considered by the Dean’s Office based on medical or compassionate grounds. Supporting documentation may be required. A student advocate is available to help students with this process and answer questions.
