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. There is no longer a formal exam cancellation process as students are ineligible to apply for a deferral once an examination has begun.

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.
