For the 2020 Fall Term: A U of T Engineering student may submit a final summative assessment time zone conflict if a time-based final summative assessment is scheduled between 12:00 a.m. (midnight) – 6 a.m. local time for the student. An example of a time zone conflict is when the final summative assessment is scheduled to start at 2:00 p.m. (EST), but this coincides with 2:00 a.m. local time for the student.
Final summative assessment time zone conflicts must be submitted to the Faculty through the term-work petition system, which is located in the Engineering Portal; do not complete a final exam petition for time zone conflicts. Time zone conflict petitions must be submitted by November 9, 2020. Time zone conflict petitions submitted after this deadline may not be accepted.
Instructors will provide accommodations for approved petitions. Those accommodations may include, but are not limited to, rescheduling the final summative assessment for a student, offering the final summative assessment in a different but comparable format, or asking the Committee on Examinations to grant a student a deferred final summative assessment for February 2021. Decisions will be communicated to students by November 30, 2020.
The Faculty reserves the right to request supporting documentation to support time zone conflicts.
