Missing Your Final Exam

As we approach the final exam season, it is important that you also prioritize your health and wellbeing in addition to your academic goals. We encourage you to take advantage of the many support services that are available to you on campus, attend exam de-stress events such as Exam Jam, and make small, attainable goals to help you finish your courses as best as you can during the final weeks of term. 

If, on the day of your exam, an unexpected circumstance occurs such as an illness, emergency, death in the family, or if you are more than 30 minutes late to your final exam, you may submit a petition with supporting documentation to request permission to write a deferred exam.

Deferred exams are scheduled to take place after the regular exam period ends.
