Absence & Deferrals

Examinations must be written at the session immediately following completion of the tuition semester. Absence from a scheduled exam does not entitle a student to write the examination at another date.

Ineligible absence from an examination will require the student to enrol in continued tuition. A request to defer an examination due to an absence must be submitted in writing along with supporting documentation, to the Registrar, no later than January 1 for the preceding December exams, May 1 for the preceding April exams and August 1 for the preceding July exams.

A request to defer a forthcoming examination must be submitted in writing in advance, along with supporting documentation, to the Registrar.

Medical deferrals may be granted with no fee. Other deferral requests will be considered on their merits and may require an administrative fee. When an exam is deferred, it is the responsibility of the student to obtain any course or text revisions and updates, and pay any additional fees, where applicable.
