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.
- Proctorio exams: If you are writing an online exam invigilated via Proctorio, you can expect to write at the same time as the scheduled Vancouver campus exam. You are responsible for converting the scheduled Vancouver time to your location time zone. For overseas students, your exam time and date may be adjusted to fall within regular waking hours. You will be notified by email if your time is adjusted.
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.
Go to the Off-campus exams page
If your course section is available for Proctorio you’ll be required to complete an exam application by the deadline as well as a Proctorio consent form. The link to the consent form will be emailed to the students registered in the Distance Education course section.
Centre for Accessibility: Proctorio inviglated examination are not an option for exam accommodation and all exams are paper examination.
