Final Examinations and Grades

Exam Schedules

Proctored, in-person, final examinations are scheduled for most online courses. Students must remain available until all examination and test obligations have been fulfilled. Travel plans are not an acceptable reason for missing an exam, as specified in the Academic Calendar. On campus schedules are posted in late October (December exams), early March (April exams), and late May (July/August exams). Off campus exam schedules will be arranged separately and available through the Exam Management Widget within your UMLearn course.

Exam Centre Declaration

Please review the following process to write your final exam for online courses and complete as needed to ensure you don't miss writing you final exam!
Students living greater than two (2) hours from Winnipeg may request to write their examination at a number of off-campus locations, which may require up to a two-hour travel to reach an approved U of M off-campus exam centre. All other students are required to write their exams on campus.
Students requesting an off-campus invigilation site are required to travel up to two (2) hours one way to reach their invigilation site.
Requests for off-campus examinations in online courses are made on a course-by-course basis through each of your courses in UM Learn. You must make a request in each course that you require an off-campus exam for.

Requests have strict deadlines to ensure that exam proctoring arrangements can be completed in time. If no request has been received by the deadline the student will be required to write their exam on the Fort Garry campus, in Winnipeg, without exception. Options to your exam arrangements can be discussed with your student advisor.

Fall Deadline for off-campus final exam declaration - October 6
Winter Deadline (Winter, Fall/Winter) for off-campus final exam declaration - February 2

To request an off-campus examination for a course you are currently enrolled in complete the following:

  1. Do you live greater than two hours outside of Winnipeg?
    No - You must write your exam on-campus in Winnipeg.
    Yes - You must request your off-campus location in each course separately by October 6th, 2017.
  2. Access your course in UM Learn.
  3. Select the 'Request' tab to select an exam centre location.
  4. Select the 'View' tab to verify which location you have selected.
  5. Your exam location will be arranged, and approved, later in the semester.
  6. More than one course?  Repeat the above steps for EACH online course you are taking this semester. E.g. if you are taking three distance courses and live in Regina, SK, you must select this location in each of your three courses.

Students, in online courses, that requested to write a final examination at an off-campus final exam location will be notified via the Exam Location Management widget on their UM Learn course homepage regarding the scheduled date and time of their final exam(s). Off-campus final exams are scheduled during the UM examination period. However, the date and time for final exams written off-campus may differ from the exam schedule posted by the Registrar's Office. Students should familiarize themselves with the examination regulations and other policies and procedures regarding academic integrity.
