Submitting Tests, Midterms, and Exams to the Exam Centre:

Additional Professor Requests

The Exam Centre’s primary mandate it to provide accommodated exams for student registered with Student Accessibility Services (SAS).  However, the centre also monitors tests/exams for students who have experienced an extenuating personal circumstance that has prevented them from writing with their class.

  • The fee for this service is $25.00 and is charged directly to the student’s account at the time of the test/exam.
  • To arrange this, faculty must make the request on behalf of the student by contacting the Exam Centre at durhamexams@trentu.ca. Please include in this email:
  • Student Name, Course Information, Date of the original test and requested date/time of the make up time. All attempts will be made to book the student in as closely to the requested time as possible.
  • Once the test/exam booking is confirmed, please provide the booking information to the student, and inform them of the Exam centre location (Room 111.1) and that they must bring their Photo I.D. as verification before being permitted to write the test/exam.

The Durham Campus Exam Centre also invigilates external College, University, and Professional exams. 

In addition, at the request of the Trent University course instructors, the Exam Centre coordinates (when feasible) fee-for-service deferred exams for students who may have missed a test or exam for extenuating circumstances (e.g., illness, family emergency, travel during inclement weather).  A course instructor must request this service although the student is responsible for paying the fees.
