Have a question?

It is your responsibility to get the course instructor’s approval to use any aids during an exam/test.

To avoid any issues when it comes time to write your exam/test, request that the course instructor sign the document or, if you have been corresponding through e-mail, attach a copy of the approval e-mail to the document as confirmation of approval for the Alternate Exam Invigilator.

Note: A copy of all documents used by a student during an exam/test is sent to the course instructor along with the completed exam materials.

Once your request is received, the Registrar’s Office will:

  • confirm your test details with the course instructor
  • schedule the appropriate space and adaptive technology

It is important to arrive on time for your exam/test and bring your YU-card for identification.  If you arrive late for an exam/test, you will not be given extra time to complete it. If you arrive more than 30 minutes late, you may not be allowed to take the exam/test at the scheduled time and you  must request permission from your course instructor to reschedule. Unavoidable delays are to be discussed with an invigilator.

If you miss the request deadline the Registrar’s Office may not be able to schedule your alternate exams and tests. Under these circumstances, your options are:

  1. to write with the class
  2. to ask your course instructor for permission to reschedule the exam or test. (Please note that permission to reschedule is at the discretion of the course instructor and is not guaranteed.)
  3. Submit the completed and approved rescheduling form using the Rescheduling Request Form.

If the reason for you late request is due to exceptional circumstances, you should contact your  counsellor (Glendon Counselling).

Students are expected to cancel requests or booking for exams or tests online as soon as they are aware that they will not write as requested or scheduled. It is the student’s responsibility to notify the course instructor of a missed exam/test and request permission to reschedule the missed exam/test. If your request to reschedule an exam/test is granted, you must submit a signed Alternate Exam and Test Rescheduling Request Form a minimum of five (5) business days in advance of the rescheduled exam/test date.  The form should be submitted to Student Client Services or submitted electronically through the upload tool on the Ask a Question page. Please note that permission to reschedule is at the discretion of the course instructor and is not guaranteed. The Registrar’s Office will only accept one rescheduling request for any missed exam/test.  If you cancel or “do not show” to write the same exam/test for the same course twice, the Registrar’s Office will not accept additional rescheduling requests for this exam/test.  In this situation, please consult with your counsellor.

Please review the cancellation information page. In all cases of missed exams/tests, it is your responsibility to notify your course instructor and submit a completed Alternate Exam and Test Rescheduling Request Form with required signatures. Permission to reschedule an exam/test is at the discretion of the course instructor and is not guaranteed.

If you drop a course, any request(s) you have made for alternate exams or tests for that course will automatically be cancelled. You do not need to take any action.

If you discover a discrepancy in your alternate exam/test booking, please notify the Registrar’s Office immediately using the online question form.

Notify the Registrar’s Office if you decide to take your test with your class or if the date/time of your test is changed, by completing the rescheduling form and uploading it with the Ask a Question Form.

Check your alternate exam or test booking information online one (1) week prior to the scheduled date. Report any discrepancies to the Registrar’s Office immediately using the Ask a Question form. Changes may occur after a booking has been posted online. Please ensure you check online regularly for updates.

Based on the Alternate Exam/Test requests you submit, booking information will appear online one (1) week prior to the date of the exam/test.  If your booking does not appear, please contact the Registrar’s Office immediately using the online questions form. Changes might occur after a booking has been posted online. Please ensure you check online regularly for updates.
