Examination Regulations

Examinations are prescheduled at 9 am, 2 pm and 7 pm.  You should be prepared to write an exam at any of these times. You must write your tests and final exams on the day and at the hour specified.

No student will be allowed to write an examination without either a Western ONECard student ID or another piece of government-issued photo identification.

Students who are unable to write a scheduled midterm test must inform their instructor and provide proper documentation to their academic counsellor. IF approval is made for a make up test and your exam centre is in London, your instructor will arrange the time and location of your rewrite.  If you are writing at an off-campus exam centre, you must contact Distance Studies office if your make up test is approved to arrange your rewrite.  Students will be required to pay an off-campus make-up exam fee.
