Scheduling and Exam Services wishes to make the Carleton community aware of the following policy change:

Carleton has implemented a new policy around early exam departures for health-related reasons.

Per Section 2.5.1 of the Undergraduate Calendar, students are expected to assess their medical situation prior to entering the examination room. Students who do not write a final examination because of illness or other circumstances beyond their control may apply to write a deferred examination.

Section 2.5 of the Academic Calendar outlines the regulations governing deferral of final examinations. Students are expected to complete a final examination once begun. If the student experiences a significant deterioration of his/her health while the examination is in progress, it may be possible to submit a petition to apply to write a deferred examination.
