Inclement Weather/Exam Cancellations
In the event of inclement weather, students should refer to myTrent for updates.
Q: (student) If exams are not cancelled, but I cannot safely drive to campus, or I am late due to transportation delays, what should I do?
A: Contact your instructor to make alternative arrangements. Students are advised to leave plenty of extra time to drive to campus for exams, especially during inclement weather.
Q: (student) Will cancelled exams be rescheduled?
A: Cancelled exams will be rescheduled to the last day of the exam period. Students should not plan to travel prior to the end of the exam period.
Q: (employee) If exams are cancelled, do I have to come to/stay at work?
A: Yes, unless advised otherwise by your supervisor due to safety considerations. It is your responsibility to contact your supervisor.
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 fall 2022 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.
