Final Examinations

  1. If you are unable to write a final examination, contact the Undergraduate Services Office, SEB 2097 or 519-661-2130, PRIOR TO THE SCHEDULED EXAMINATION TIME to request permission to write a Special Final Examination. If no one is available in the Undergraduate Services Office, leave a message clearly stating your name & student number and which exam you will be missing.
  2. Be prepared to provide the Undergraduate Services Office with supporting documentation the next day, or as soon as possible (in cases where students are hospitalized). The following circumstances are not considered grounds for missing a final examination or requesting special examinations: common cold, sleeping in, misreading timetable and travel arrangements. If you are ill, you must have the doctor or physician fill out the Student Medical Certificate.
  3. In order to receive permission to write a special examination, you must obtain the approval of the Chair of the Department and the Associate Dean.  In order to do so, you must sign a "Recommendation for a Special Examination Form" available in the Undergraduate Services Office, SEB 2097. If approved, the Undergraduate Services Office will then notify the course instructor(s) and reschedule the examination on your behalf.  Students writing examinations for outside engineering courses will need to check with that department to find out the date, time & location of their exam(s).
  4. Please click here for more information on Examination Conflicts. Students with two or more final exams scheduled at the same time should have received an email from the Registrar's Office.

Please note: It is the student's responsibility to check the date, time and location of the special examination.
