Exception to Policies

Types of Exceptions Deadline
Exception to Degree/Distribution Requirements Well in advance of the session in which the student intends to graduate
Credit/No Credit (CR/NCR) Deadline As soon as possible, and no later than six months after end of session in which course was taken

Students are required to complete distribution, degree and program requirements outlined in the Academic Calendar. Students are also expected to adhere to the CR/NCR policy, including the deadlines for courses taken at U of T campuses.

Students who submit petitions for an exception to degree/distribution requirements, or an exception to the CR/NCR deadline should explain why their situation warrants special consideration compared to other students. Degree and distribution requirements and published deadlines are upheld for all UTM students to maintain fairness and the integrity of the degree.

Students are strongly encouraged to first speak with an Academic Advisor in the Office of the Registrar before submitting their petition.
