Preparing for Your Exams
Exams can be a stressful time so we encourage you to take good care of yourself and to utilize resources on campus.
If you are seriously ill on the day of your exam, the Faculty Office recommends that your
do not write your exam at that time
, because that will be considered a valid attempt and your grade will stand. If you find yourself in this situation, you can make a request for academic consideration using one of the following forms:
Self-Declaration for Brief Absence Form (up to 48 hours)
You can use the Self-Declaration request form for an illness or other serious extenuating circumstance that is not expected to last more than 48 hours. Your instructors will receive an email from the Faculty Office notifying them of your request. In this case, you could be required to write a deferred examination after the 48 hour absence, if it does not result in 3 consecutive exams within 24 hours.
Short-Term Extenuating Circumstances Form (more than 48 hours, up to 3 months)
You should use the Academic Consideration for Short-Term Extenuating Circumstances request form (more than 48 hours and up to 3 months) if you are experiencing extenuating circumstances that can be expected to last for more than 48 hours, and no longer than 3 months. In this case, the University requires supporting documentation. Your instructors will receive an email from the Faculty Office notifying them of your request and verifying receipt of appropriate documentation. Given the volume of requests during the exam period, there may be a delay in the notification.
Please note that for both types of requests, it is your responsibility to follow up with your instructors to arrange the appropriate consideration. It is up to your instructors, however, to determine the date of the deferred examination, in accordance with their departmental policy on deferred examinations, if applicable. Deferred examinations may be scheduled within 48 hours of the regular exam and up to the end of the subsequent term.
If you experience a sudden serious illness
an exam, you must notify an Examination Proctor prior to leaving the examination hall, or prior to exiting the examination session of an online proctored examination. If you decide to continue the exam or leave without notifying a proctor, the examination will be considered a valid attempt, and the grade obtained in the exam will stand.
