Deferred and Missed Exams


Please note that students must remain available until all exam and test obligations have been fulfilled. Travel plans are not an acceptable reason to miss examinations.

Fall Deferred Exam Dates: January 7-10th, 2020

Students with known exam conflicts due to religious observance (interfaith calendar), participation in specific scholastic and athletic events, or a medical condition may request a deferred examination.  Applications for a deferred examination due to a known conflict, as indicated here, must be filed 20 working days prior to the date of the scheduled exam.  Travel plans are not an acceptable reason for missing an exam.  

If you miss a final examination for medical or compassionate reasons, you may be granted a deferred examination.  Applications for a deferred examination after the examination has been missed must be filed within 48 hours of the date of the missed examination (see "Deadlines", below).  A medical certificate of otherwise appropriate documentation may be required.  Students who have been granted deferred exams in two consecutive terms or three non-consecutive terms previously at the University of Manitoba will have their application reviewed by the Associate Dean (Undergraduate Programs). Approval of the deferred exam request will be at the discretion of the Associate Dean.

Deferred Exam Application must be submitted in person to Engineering Student Affairs Office (E1-284 EITC) attention Vicky Smith.

Students who have received a failing grade as the result of missing a deferred exam and feel that the circumstances surrounding this situation warrant special consideration may submit a letter of appeal to the Faculty of Engineering Standing and Appeals Committee.

Re-deferrals (deferring a scheduled deferred exam) will only be considered in extremely exceptional circumstances on a case-by-case basis by the Associate Dean (Undergraduate Programs). If approved, the re-deferral will be scheduled for the next regular sitting of the final exam for the course in question (could be up to a year from the date of the original-scheduled exam). Please note that a request for a re-deferral may result in the student being denied registration in the current or a future term until all outstanding examination obligations have been completed.  Requests to write a deferred exam after the originally-scheduled deffered exam has already been written will be denied.
