Students registering for courses during the Add/Drop period shall not be penalized for missed Assessments which were due during the course change period, including for class attendance. (University Student Assessment Policy, 3.1.5). For full-year courses, only the September Add/Drop period applies.

Labs, tutorials, conferences, and other assessments scheduled outside of lecture time should be scheduled by the end of the Add-Drop period (3.2.4).

Typically, midterms or assessments worth more than 10% held outside of regular class time should not be scheduled during the last 14 calendar days of a Course.

This does not include:

  • Regular Assessments worth less than 10% of your grade (e.g. quizzes, reading responses);
  • An oral examination in a language class;
  • Most paper assignments (7.1.2).

Students should receive “sufficient” time to complete written assessment before the Final Exam period (4.1.1).

If you have been penalized for an Assessment during the Add/Drop period or believe that a scheduled Assessment is in violation of university policies, find out who to contact.
