Deferred final exams

If you need to defer a final exam, you must complete the Application for Deferred Final Examinations form. 

  • If you are deferring for medical reasons, you must also upload the Medical Statement form, completed and signed by a doctor.
  • If you are requesting a deferred exam for another reason, you must upload the Academic Consideration form.

All of these forms are located on MyCampus, under the Documents tab.

Applications for deferred final exams must be submitted by the below deadlines:

Medical reasons

  • The online application must be submitted no later than three working days after the scheduled exam.
  • The Medical Statement form must completed by the treating licensed practitioner within 24 hours of the scheduled exam.

Academic consideration

  • The online application with the completed Academic Consideration form must be submitted no later than three working days after the scheduled exam date.

Religious observances

  • The online application with the completed Academic Consideration form must be submitted 15 working days prior to the first final exam date.

It is your responsibility to know when the exam periods are for all semesters and not book anything that will conflict with your exam schedule. Visit the academic schedule for exam dates.

If you are registered with Student Accessibility Services (SAS) and you are requesting a deferred final exam as a part of your accommodation plan, you must submit the online application and upload the Application for Alternate Exam Date form, found on the SAS website, that you sign with your SAS advisor.

You must submit your application no later than three working days after the scheduled exam date.

A $45 non-refundable, per exam administrative fee will be placed on your tuition account when you apply for a deferred exam.  It is your responsibility to pay this fee immediately. If your request is not approved, you will be issued a refund.

You will not be charged the fee if you submitted an application for bereavement, religious observances, or if you are rescheduling exams as part of an accommodation plan.
