Final Exam Copies

Final Exam Copies are available to students who wish to order photocopies of their Engineering final exams that they wrote in the previous academic term.

Exam copies can be ordered through the Engineering Portal.


Copies are $15.00 per exam and are non-refundable.


Deadlines to request final exam copies for courses offered by the Faculty:

  • Fall Term (December exams): February 15
  • Winter Term (April to May exams): June 15
  • Summer Session: October 15

Request Timeline

An exam copy is available through the Engineering Portal. A request typically takes 1-2 weeks to process, depending on the availability of the exam paper. The request may be delayed if the Instructor or Course Coordinator has not returned the exam paper to the Office of the Registrar. An exam copy request will not be processed until the Registrar's Office receives payment. The Office accepts payment by credit card.

If you order an exam copy, you will receive an email once it is ready. Copies may either be picked up at the Office of the Registrar or mailed to the address listed in your ACORN account.

Notice for 2022 Fall Term Requests:

Please be aware that the Undergraduate Assessment Committee (UAC) has decided to delay the release of final exam copies for the Fall 2022 exams. Exam copies will be released to all students who ordered a copy starting on February 22, 2023. Please allow a few business days for the exam copy to be sent to you.


Why do I have to pay a fee for a copy of my exam?
At the end of every academic term, the Office of the Registrar receives hundreds of requests for exam copies and final mark re-checks. The administrative fee helps the Registrar's Office cover the additional staffing and resources needed to expedite the requests in a timely fashion.

May I obtain the original exam?
To maintain the academic integrity of the University, the Office of the Registrar is unable to provide a student with the original copy of their exam. This practice ensures that each exam is kept in its original condition.

I purchased an exam copy, but afterwards, my Professor released the exam to the entire class. Can I get a refund?
Please reach out to the Registrar's Office to receive a refund if the exam was released to the entire class after you purchased an exam copy. Some instructors might release their exam copies to their class if their exam was graded electronically.
