Examination Cancellation Contingency Plan
The President, or delegate, will decide, in consultation with the Registrar, or delegate, whether to proceed with or to postpone examinations in the event of extreme weather conditions or any other general emergency which occurs when final examinations are in session.

If the decision is made to postpone examinations, the postponement will apply to all examinations scheduled for a particular day or part thereof.

In anticipation of the need of such action, each examination schedule will list a date on which any or all postponed examinations would be re-written at the same hour and location as originally scheduled.

The date chosen will be the earliest possible date, other than a Sunday or statutory holiday, following the last day of regularly scheduled examinations.
