This e-mail is just to make sure that you have the correct information regarding
Petitions for Deferred Standing for this examination period.  We are getting
calls from students stating that they are unable to write their exam(s) and we
have been telling them they must contact the Professor in question, with
DOCUMENTED EVIDENCE as to the need to defer.

Please note carefully that the DEFERRED STANDING AGREEMENT can only be used for
those students who are in the Faculty of Arts, Education, Environmental Studies
and Fine Arts.  Any other students must formally petition to their Home Faculty
(they will be required to get input from the Professor).

The Deferred Standing Agreement form can be picked up in the Undergraduate
Office or the Registrar's Office.  Once the form is completed the student then
brings it to the Undergraduate office where we give the student a copy and
forward a copy to you and, of course, we keep a copy.  Generally nothing
further happens until the grade is forwarded by the Professor to my office.
 Please note that the forms must be received in the Undergraduate office not
later than May 1.

For students who must formally petition (Science, Atkinson, Admin. Studies,
etc.) you may be required to fill out course summary forms and if the petition
is granted, you will receive a letter from the appropriate Faculty stating that
the petition was granted and the date they must write the examination by.
 Students generally have two weeks after the examination to submit this type of
petition.

Please be aware of the fact that the MATH/STATS department has courses in BOTH
FACULTY OF ARTS AND FACULTY OF PURE AND APPLIED SCIENCE which means that we
will be using two different ways to defer final examinations.  Hopefully this
will change in the near future, but for now, we just have to put up with
different rules and ways of doing things.


If you have questions, please call me and I will attempt to answer them.
