Students are expected to be available to write their exams for the full duration of the exam period. Special accommodations will not be made for students unable to make their scheduled exam due to travel.
Distance Education courses will be scheduled as one of the following:
- On-campus exams: If you're taking Distance Education courses, you'll automatically be scheduled to write your exam on the Vancouver campus.
- Off-campus exams: If you intend to write your exam off-campus you must apply to write at a partner exam centre, or find an invigilator at an Other Location.
If you aren’t sure if you will be off-campus or not, it is better to submit an application for off-campus before the application deadline (and cancel it at least 4 weeks before the exam period if necessary), than try to add an off-campus exam late.
If you're writing exams on campus, you'll be automatically scheduled to write your final examinations on the Vancouver campus and won't have to complete an exam application.
Your exam schedule will be released at the same time as the campus-wide exam schedule.
Your location information will be available 1 month before the start of the exam period. To see your exam information, go to the Student Service Centre (SSC) and select Exams > Exam Schedule.
Exams are held at 08:30 am, 12:00 pm, 3:30 pm and 7:00 pm during the standard examination period.
If you plan to write outside of the UBC Vancouver campus you'll be required to complete an exam application by the deadline.
