Summary of Changes for the 2023-2024 Calendar

G.3.2 Scheduling of Final Assessments

Scheduling of final assessments focuses on limiting scheduling conflicts for students. Requests for final assessments to be scheduled on specific dates cannot be accommodated.

Final assessments for evening and week-end courses are scheduled by the Registrar. The scheduling of final examinations in the evening or on a week-end cannot be guaranteed.

The Final Examination Schedule will be published approximately one month after the start of the term and will be available in the Student Centre and on the Office of the Registrar website:

All final assessments must be scheduled by the Registrar, except:

  • Final assessments which are take-home, oral or project presentations.
  • Final assessments in the JD, MD, DVM and graduate programs offered by the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape.
  • Courses held at an off-campus location where the final assessments will be scheduled at that location. In these cases, the department will schedule the final assessments during the official final examination period for that term, as outlined in the Academic Schedule. This excludes non-MD courses at the Foothills campus and courses in the MBA program.
  • Supplemental examinations.
Scheduling Common Final Examinations

Common final examinations may be scheduled when all sections within the same course are required to have the examination schedule at the same time. Common final examinations must be requested at the time the course is scheduled and may only include other sections of the exact same course. Requests for different courses with the same instructor cannot be accommodated as a common final examination.

When possible, common final examinations will be scheduled in the same location. In some instances, the examination may be scheduled in multiple locations to accommodate the number of students.

Where common exams are requested for a course with sections with different instructional modalities (i.e., section 1 is in-person and section 2 is online), the final examination format must adhere to G. Examination and Tests Assessment Modalities, items a and b.
