Exam Conflicts

Please note that these procedures refer only to exams formally scheduled by the Registrar’s Office and released on the Courses Web site. If you have a mid-term examination conflict, please be in touch with your professors or the departments who offer the courses.

What is a Conflict?

There are three types of undergraduate exam conflicts:

  • Two or more exams at the same time.
  • Three exams on the same day.
  • Exams during three consecutive periods in 24 hours (e.g. 7 to 10pm the night before, then 9am to noon and 2 to 5pm to the next day).

What if you have an Exam Conflict?

If you are an Undergraduate student and have a final exam conflict as outlined above, you will be notified by a system-generated alert with further instructions.

For Graduate students examinations are set in a way that largely prevents exam conflicts. If an exam conflict exists, please connect with your instructors first to arrange a resolution to the conflict. If a resolution cannot be made, then complete Exam Conflict Form below.

The Exam Conflict Form is for Schulich students to address conflicts regarding formally scheduled Final Examinations. Your request will be facilitated by the Office of the Associate Dean Academic and they can be contacted at ada@schulich.yorku.ca for further questions.
