Deferred Examination Request Petition Forms


For courses taught through the Faculty of Science

Final examinations are a mandatory part of most courses. Students are expected to take the examination process seriously, Missing a final examination is a rare occurrence, but when it happens, a student must apply for deferred examination privileges in courses offered by departments in the Faculty of Science (AS, BI, CH, CP, HE, HN, KP, MA, PC, PS, SC).

Please note:

1. Scheduling: Two examinations scheduled at the same time

If a student has two examinations scheduled at the same time, the student must contact the Examinations Office directly (Anne Snyder, asnyder@wlu.ca) to have one of the examinations re-scheduled.

2. Scheduling: ALC accommodation

Scheduling accommodations for students registered to write their exams with Accessible Learning are now handled directly by a studentís ALC consultant. A deferral request form is no longer required for ALC exam scheduling accommodations (Faculty of Science only). Students registered with ALC, but who are requesting an exam deferral on grounds other than scheduling (i.e., illness, religious grounds, etc.), will still need to submit an appeal for a deferred examination to the course instructor (link to form below).

3. If a student is requesting to defer more than one examination, a student must fill out the appeal form for multiple deferred examinations which will be managed by the Office of the Associate Dean: Student Services (link to form below).

4. If a student is requesting a re-deferral of an examination or is appealing for deferred examination privileges based on student error (e.g., misreading the schedule, late arrival), a student must file a petition with the Office of the Associate Dean: Student Services (link to form below).

5. For all other reasons, a student must submit an appeal for a deferred examination to the course instructor (link to form below).
