Summer tuition and fees

The balance of fees is due by June 15, 2020.

  • Any additional fees resulting from subsequent changes in registration are due by the end of the month in which such changes are made.

Summer exam period

The exam period for Term 1 starts on Tuesday, August 4, and ends on Monday, August 17, 2020. The final exam timetable will be available in mid June.

  • As per Vice-President Academic and Provost, Valerie Kuehne's update on Thursday, March 26, all instruction this summer will be offered remotely. There will be no face-to-face instruction or in-person assessments, including exams. Given this change to online delivery of courses and exams, the timetable will include limited details on exam delivery/format. It is the instructor's responsibility to inform students of when the final exam will be held and how the exam will be delivered.
  • Examinations for all other summer session courses held in terms 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 are held in class on the day noted on the course syllabus. Final examination dates for these terms are not listed on this website.
  • In the event that a final exam from term 1 conflicts with a regularly scheduled class time (term 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7), students must contact the department and /or the instructor(s) as soon as possible to make alternate arrangements for the final exam (term 1).
