Class and Exam Conflicts

Class Conflicts

If you have a class conflict with an exam/test you will need academic consideration to move the exam/test. Please email your Academic Advisor, providing details of the conflict.. After your academic advisor has been in touch with your instructor regarding the conflict, it is then your responsibility to connect with your instructor regarding consideration.

Midterm Test/Exam Conflicts

If you have two exams/tests at the same time, please email your Academic Advisor, providing details of the conflict. You will need to list both exams/tests, including the day and times, and then indicate which exam you hope to move. In situations where there is an in-class midterm and a midterm outside of class hours the in-class midterm takes priority.

Midterm/Test: 3 in 23 hours

The School of Health Studies will extend the University Exam Conflict Policy of 3 exams in 23 hours to midterm exams/tests provided that each midterm exam/test is worth 15% or more of the final grade. Please email your Academic Advisor, providing details of the conflict. Each case is reviewed separately and students must show how much the course component is worth when completing the paperwork. Course outlines may be required. If approved, we will allow you to move one of your midterm exams/tests in order to eliminate the 3 in 23 conflict. In situations where there is an in-class midterm and a midterm outside of class hours the in-class midterm takes priority.

Final Examination Conflicts

Please refer to the Registrar’s Office for examination conflict information.

Students who have direct examination conflicts or multiple examination situations during the December mid-year examination and April examination periods will be emailed instructions, by the Office of the Registrar, as to how to make alternative arrangements.

We will also accommodate Nursing students who have direct conflicts or multiple examination situations during the mid-term examination periods. Please email your Academic Advisor, providing details of the conflict.

NOTE: A December examination conflict involving a mid-term and a final examination will require the rescheduling of the mid-term, not the final examination.
