Occasionally, circumstances arise that prevent students from writing their examination on the date requested. When the unwritten examination is returned to Athabasca University, and you request to write it at a later date, this is described as a multiple examination.
Your new write date, however, must not extend past your course contract end date.
You may reschedule your examination by following these guidelines.
For each request to write, you must complete and submit an Examination Request Form. If you reschedule your new write date within five business days after your original write date, you will avoid the multiple examination fee (examination rebooking fees may be assessed by your invigilator).
If you reschedule later, Athabasca University will charge you a multiple examination fee. This fee is levied each time an exam is returned unwritten and is requested again. If you were scheduled to write your examination at Athabasca University Central, Edmonton, or Calgary office, you will be charged a non-refundable rebooking fee, provided the exam is written within 10 days.
Ensure that your invigilator is able to reschedule to the new write date. Your invigilator may assess a cancellation or rebooking fee; however, she or he is under no obligation to reschedule a new write date. Also ensure that the correct fee accompanies the Examination Request Form.
Multiple examinations do not apply to supplemental examinations, which are written as requested.
