|Supplemental Examinations |
If you are not satisfied with your initial examination mark (supplemental examinations do not apply to assignments, quizzes, or challenge courses) you may request and write one supplemental examination for each midterm or final exam required in your course. The higher of the two marks will be used in calculating your final course grade.
If the supplemental exam is written after the course contract end date, you are not required to apply for a course extension.
Athabasca University charges a non-refundable fee for a supplemental examination. To avoid delay, ensure that this fee accompanies the Examination Request Form. Unwritten/multiple examinations do not apply to supplemental examinations, which are written as requested.
In order to request a supplemental examination, you must complete and submit the Examination Request Form to the Office of the Registrar so that the form will arrive no later than 90 calendar days after the date of writing the initial examination. The supplemental exam must be written no earlier than 20 days and no later than 30 days after submitting the Examination Request Form.
