The exams office makes accommodations for students who have an academic conflict as a result of exam scheduling. Please visit http://www.queensu.ca/registrar/exams/conflicts for more details.
An academic conflict is:
- Two exams at the same time
- 3 in a row (includes one 9 am, one 2 pm, and one 7 pm exam slot, in 24 hours)
- We do not make any accommodation for non-academic conflict (ie sporting events, wish to return home earlier).
- Any requests for a student to write at a different day and/or time than the scheduled exams will be directed to the course instructor and/or Faculty Office for approval AND administration.
- The Exams Office requires a hard copy of any exam which we are administering. Emailed versions are not accepted for security purposes.
- Completed exams are not returned via campus mail or courier. You (or a delegate) must come to our office to pick up the exam(s). We will ask for ID, and, if it is a delegate, a signed letter from you with the authorization.
- Midterm exam accommodations are made for students who require the use of a computer only.
- When a midterm is requested, instructors will be sent a form which must be returned quickly in order for the Exams Office to make arrangements.
- A copy of the exam is required in our office a minimum of 3 business days prior to the exam, or we will not be able to make the accommodation, and the student will be advised to speak with the instructor to make arrangements.
- For all other accommodations, students are directed to speak with the instructor and/or faculty office.
- Instructors are encouraged to attend all exam venues in which their exam is being written, including accommodated venues.
- Instructors should contact their Faculty Office regarding deadline dates for submitting grades.
