Please note carefully that ALL petitions must be APPROVED and have official documentation attached to them. Therefore, if an ARTS student whichs to request deferred standing they bring the form to you for signature. The STUDENT then brings the deferred standing agreement to the Undergraduate Office where we give the student a copy and give you a copy and forward the appropriate copy to the Registrar's Office we also keep a copy for future reference. NOW, Faculty of Pure and Applied Science students must PETITION through Science Academic Services. These forms are available from the Registrar's Office and will need some input from you (I believe). The student returns the petition to Science Academic Services and the petition is then taken to a COMMITTEE who decides the fate of the petition. You should receive a LETTER from Science Academic Services as to the outcome of the petition. In otherwords, if you don't have something in writing (either a copy of the deferred standing agreement or a letter from Science Academic Services, the student CANNOT write a deferred examination. If you wish to set a specific date for any deferred exam(s), please note this on the appropriate form where possible. If you have any questions, please contact me. Janice
