I’m going to miss my final exam – can I reschedule?

If for any reason you are unable to write the final course examination in the prescribed time period, you may apply for an alternate exam. To schedule this, you will need to submit an Alternate Exam Form which can be found on the Forms/Applications page of our website.  Select the form appropriate to your course to reschedule this examination. Please note there is a fee of $156 CAD to schedule an alternate exam.

If the deadline to apply for an alternate has passed, the next available date will be noted on the Forms/Applications page of our website.

You are NOT ELIGIBLE to write an alternate exam if you attempted the regular examination.

Please note that if you have missed your final exam, you grade will be shown as DNW on your profile.  A DNW signifies that you “did not write” the final exam or participate in evaluation.  It carries no academic penalty.  Once your alternate exam is written and graded, your final grade will change and will include your alternate exam grade.

If for any reason, there is a medical or health-related reason for missing a test please let our Accessibility Team know and we will investigate options on your behalf. Please be advised that medical documentation may be requested for consideration purposes.
