In order to accommodate students with overscheduled exam periods, BC Law designates one day at the end of each exam period as a make-up day. A student may move one scheduled exam to the make-up day if the criteria below are met.
CRITERIA TO RESCHEDULE:
- 2 exams in 1 day
- 3 exams in 3 consecutive days
- 4 exams in 5 consecutive days
HOW TO RESCHEDULE:
- You will be notified by Academic & Student Services if you have a conflict, including instructions
- Visit Academic & Student Services, Stuart 308 after receiving notice
- Sign the provided confidentiality oath
Beyond the defined conflict, exams may only be rescheduled in these limited circumstances: student health; family emergency; the birth of a child; a conflict with a religious holiday that the student observes; military obligations for active or reserve service members; and extraordinary and compelling circumstances as determined by the associate dean of students.
Individual vacation travel plans or outside work commitments do not constitute extraordinary circumstances.
Students who seek to have an exam rescheduled for one of the above stated reasons should contact Academic & Student Services as soon as possible.
Faculty do not have the authority to reschedule exams or otherwise administer exams.
Students are responsible for reviewing and understanding the exam schedule and the consequences before the Drop/Add period ends. Any changes to the exam schedule before the end of the Add/Drop period will not constitute a reason for rescheduling exams.
