Exams and Afterward

Your course will end on the final date stated in the Term and Session dates. It's important that all course assignments, activities and the final exam are completed as indicated in the course outline by the end of term. If not, you may receive a failing grade. Requests to submit work late may only be considered when accompanied by documentation demonstrating extenuating personal circumstances.


Students must write their exam on the day and time scheduled by the University. The start time may vary slightly depending on the off-campus exam centre. Do not schedule vacations, appointments, etc., during the exam period. Final examinations for online courses are not scheduled during the evening or on weekends.

Off-Campus Exams

Most online courses require a supervised final examination at an established exam centre or via online proctoring, where available.  Queen's has exam centres around the world. However, if there is no centre listed within 100km of your location, please enter code #9999 (remote) and email us immediately following registration for further instructions.

Off-Campus Exam Fees

Off-campus students who register in an online course that has a final proctored exam will be charged a $75 exam fee. 

If your course does not have a proctored exam, enter 1111 when prompted for the exam centre code.  This will ensure that you will not be charged the exam fee.

Changing Your Exam Centre

If you need to change your exam centre location, notify Arts and Science Online Office by the deadline (listed below) to avoid a late administrative fee of $100.
