Writing a deferred exam

This page explains what happens after you submit a request to defer a final examination.

Be sure to review all the university regulations concerning DEF notation sand supplemental examinations in the undergraduate calendar.

Was your request approved?

We consider requests to defer exams under the following conditions:

We begin processing requests for “DEF” notations as soon as the official examination period is over and your final grade has been recorded. You will receive an email informing you of the decision to your DEF request. Please ensure your email address on file is up to date.

If your request is approved, information about which exam period you will write your exam will be included in the email. Please note that any questions about exam content, such as which version you will write, etc. must be discussed with the department, and not the Examinations Office.

Please follow up if you don’t hear from us within a month of submitting your request. Call us at 848-2424, ext. 2608, 2609 or 2676.
