A student whose academic performance is affected by injury, family or personal affliction, or illness should immediately consult with a health professional, and may request, directly from the course instructor, deferral or substitution of a mid-term test or examination, or of other work which is due during the term. This request must be accompanied by supporting documentation.

A student whose academic performance is affected by injury, family or personal affliction, or illness, should immediately consult with a health professional and, where the due date for the work is after course grades are submitted by the instructor, must submit a formal Request for Academic Concession (RAC). A RAC must always be accompanied by supporting documentation.

Please consult the current Academic Calendar for the full text of UVic's Academic Concession policy.
