Accommodation for Mid-term Test Conflicts
- Students may be able to receive accommodation when they have two tests that overlap or are back-to-back. Tests scheduled during class time
take priority. Alternate arrangements will be made for the test scheduled
outside of class time. Please check your course outliine for information
about how such conflicts will be handled.
- Alternate arrangements will also need to
be made for tests/midterms that conflict with a regular class, lab or
tutorial. Please check your course outliine for information about how
such conflicts will be handled.
- Complete an Accommodation Request Form for mid-term conflicts. Make sure to include the details pertaining to all courses involved in the conflict.
- Submit the Accommodation Request Form to our academic counselling team at least two weeks in advance of the conflicting course components (e.g., tests). Click here for our location and office hours.)
* Please note that students must seek accommodation through their home faculty academic counselling office despite which subject(s) are involved in the accommodation request. So, for example, a Science student would visit our office if they had conflicting Psychology tests.
Heavy Test Loads:
- The University does not have a policy that supports accommodation for heavy test loads; the '3 Exams in 23 hours' accommodation policy that some students are familiar with only pertains to Exams in the December or April Exam periods.
