The Office of Student Affairs, as a type of Accommodation, provides advocacy for students in the form of deferrals for exams – in other words, changing the time of the exam in extreme circumstances when the student cannot attend at the regularly scheduled time.
Students may submit a formal request to defer the date of a final or midterm examination when circumstances beyond their control prevent them from attending. The request must be in writing and must be approved the Office of Student Affairs. Please note that the College does not have a policy for exam re-writes.
Requests will be granted only in exceptional circumstances such as a death in the family or a medical emergency. Any requests arising from poor planning or inconvenience, such as booking a flight before the exam schedule is published or conflict with another activity will not be approved.
In order to successfully defer an exam, students are encouraged to follow the steps outlined below:
