Q: (invigilator/instructor) What are my responsibilities if exams are cancelled or the university is closed during an exam?
A: If the university is closed due to inclement weather that results in buses being cancelled and travel advisories issued by the OPP while an exam is underway, instructors or invigilators are responsible to bring to the attention of students the location of emergency transportation and/or accommodations provided by the university, which will be broadcast via the Emergency Communication System. If the university is closed due to any other reason, instructors or invigilators are to follow the directions broadcast via the Emergency Communication System and provide that information to their students.
Student Accessibility Services (SAS) & Accommodated Exams
Students with disabilities who are registered with SAS and who require accommodated time or other exam-related accommodations for an in-person exam must book their exams using the SAS Portal a minimum of two weeks prior to the start of the formal exam period.
Deadline to book for the winter 2023 exam period is two weeks before the first day of the exam period.
Students must book exams according to the university exam schedule. Accommodations relating to date and/or time shifting may be arranged after booking is completed.
It is assumed that your exam will be written at the campus location at which the course is offered. Students taking courses in Peterborough will write at the Centre for Academic Testing in Peterborough. Students taking courses in Durham will write at the Durham Campus Exam Centre.
