Missed exams and DEF notations

What to do if you miss a final exam

If you missed a final examination due to unforeseeable circumstances beyond your control, you may be able to write it at a later date. This page explains when you may apply for a deferred exam and how to do it.

Be sure to review all the university regulations concerning DEF notations in the undergraduate calendar.

What does a DEF notation mean?

A DEF notation on your transcript indicates that you missed a final examination and have permission to write a supplemental exam at a future date. After you write the final exam your final grade in the course will replace the DEF notation on your transcript.
