Special Consideration Process for Multiple Tests

It is your responsibility to follow the appropriate procedures and submit requests for special consideration on time; failure to do so may result in your request being denied. If you have any questions, please email soctests.utm@utoronto.ca from your U of T email account and include your full name and student number. 

Multiple Tests

The department will accommodate students writing tests scheduled in more than two sociology courses on the same day, provided the student submits an Online Special Consideration Request and supporting documentation at least seven days (one week) in advance of the test date. The student will be permitted to write the last test of the day as scheduled by the department. To do so, please observe the information below. 

Online Special Consideration Request

You must present your case to the department (not the instructor) by completing an Online Special Consideration Request via https://app.utm.utoronto.ca/SpecialRequest

Declaration of Absence

You need to declare your absence from a class, for any reason, through your ACORN account in order to receive academic accommodation.  

Supporting Documentation

To support of your Online Special Consideration Request, you must email the details for the three or more sociology tests scheduled on the same date (including the course code, instructor, test date and time for each course) to soctests.utm@utoronto.ca from your U of T email account, and include your full name and student number.

False statements and/or documentation will be treated as academic offences and dealt with accordingly.

Deadlines

You must submit your request and supporting documentation at least seven days (one week) in advance of test date or your request will be denied.

Decisions

You will receive notification of the decision via email to your utoronto email account.

It is your responsibility to ensure your utoronto email account is working and able to receive emails. Claims that a departmental decision was not received will NOT be considered as a reason for further consideration. If you do NOT receive notification of our decision within one week of your submission, please email soctests.utm@utoronto.ca from your U of T email account, and include your full name and student number.
