End-of-semester Officially Timetabled Examination Accommodations Closing Dates.
In order to receive exam accommodations for end-of-semester officially timetabled exams, students must register fully with the Disability Office by the following closing dates.
Closing Date for Semester 1 Exam Accommodations: October 31st 2023
Closing Date for Semester 2 Exam Accommodations: March 15th 2024
Students with temporary disabilities (e.g. broken arm) should email [email protected] to apply for temporary exam accommodations.
Please note-closing dates are strictly adhered to.
For timed in-class assessments, the responsibility lies with the student to inform their lecturer of their exam accommodations. The student must approach the lecturer facilitating the exam and request use of their exam accommodations at least 2 weeks prior to the in-class assessment date.
Many students do not request for in-class assessments as these are short tests with only a small amount of reading or writing required. In addition, extra time only occurs after 1 hour of an examination has passed. Most in-class exams are less than 60 mins and therefore extra time does not apply.
