G.2.3 Deferral of Term Work

Term work is defined as any assessment (papers, projects, tests, etc.) identified on the course outline that is due on or prior to the last day of classes.

Term Work due Before the End of Classes:

Instructors, subject to any established departmental or faculty procedures, may establish their own deadlines for the completion of term work prior to the end of term in which the course is scheduled. Students must be made aware of any departmental or faculty procedures on the course outline.

Term Work due After the End of the Term:

Should a request to defer term work exceed the end of the term, a Deferral of Term Work form must be completed and submitted to the Office of the Registrar. The deferral will be recorded on the student record. Deferrals are granted at the discretion of the Dean (or designate) and are normally granted for 30 days beyond the last day of the term. Should circumstances warrant, the maximum time that may be granted for a deferral of term work is one additional term. Approved extensions must be sent to the Office of the Registrar. Application information is available at: https://www.ucalgary.ca/registrar/student-centre/student-forms.

See section G.1.2 In-Course Assessments and Absences for additional information regarding absences from tests.
