This form is used to defer the date of a final exam or a final assignment.

Conditions

  1. The professor and the student should arrange a date for the student to write the missed exam or submit the remaining workload.
  2. The student must have supporting documents for the reason of deferral.
    • Supporting documents would include any documentation from the attending Physician, the Counselling & Development Center, or other appropriate University offices.

Deadlines and Submission

Senate policy states: “normally requests for deferred standing must be communicated within one week following a missed examination or the last day to submit course work”. The period during which the University is officially closed for December holidays and statutory holidays is not counted in the determination of deadline days.

Any student who misses the deadline for submitting a completed Final Exam/Assignment Deferred Agreement form may petition for deferred standing through the Office of Student Programs, C102.

If a course director does not agree to consider requests for deferred standing, students may petition for deferred standing through Academic Services C102, York Hall.


Petitions for deferred standing may not be successful.
