Confirm Your Winter Exam Schedule Before Booking a Vacation

If you are planning a vacation during the Winter holiday break, please keep in mind that Fall 2018 final examinations period runs from Friday, December 7 to Thursday, December 20 (12 days) and exams may be scheduled until the evening of Thursday, December 20.

Deferred examinations from the Fall 2018 term will be scheduled during the dates of Tuesday, February 19 to Friday, February 22, 2019.

Personal travel will not be approved as a reason for missing a scheduled final examination, so please plan accordingly. As a student, it is your responsibility to ensure you are available to write an exam during this period. In the event that inclement weather causes a school closure and you have a final examination scheduled for that day, it will be re-scheduled within the same examination period.

If you have any questions, please contact the Student Experience – Academic Team at or at (905) 525-9140 ext. 24433.
