Information for Faculty

Exam schedule

The new exam schedule is now available on the Exam Schedules website. We recognize that the change to the exam period will have an impact on faculty and students. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter as we are working towards minimizing the overall impact and bringing the term to a successful conclusion. 

  • The April 18-April 24 schedule will remain as is to minimize the impact on students and faculty.
  • The April 11-17 initial schedule will be moved to April 25-May 2. This will include two days of larger “common exams” (multiple sections of the same course writing together).
  • Our priority is to minimize impact and timetabling conflict for students and faculty. The Scheduling office will continue to update the information as necessary, so please check the schedule periodically to see if there have been any further changes.

We are encouraging students who cannot attend the exam due to the exam date change to contact their instructor first. They can also follow up with Academic Advising at advising@uwinnipeg.ca regarding a deferred exam appeal.

Faculty who cannot hold an exam due to the exam date change are encouraged to discuss alternatives with their Department Chair. The Department Chair will follow up with Scheduling.

Faculty who wish to move their exam from the scheduled day and time can utilize the exam petition process. Reminder that 100% of the students need to agree to the change for it to be enacted.  There may also be space limitations that prevent the change.

Faculty who wish to provide an additional sitting of their exam, while maintaining the formally scheduled one, may also submit a room booking request. There may be space limitations that prevent the request.

For onsite courses:

  • Classes can resume as of March 26, 2024. If AV technology is required, please follow the instructions as outlined in the answers below.
  • Use an HDMI connection through the Smart Classroom or the podium system.
  • Follow the printed instructions available in individual classrooms.

For online courses:

  • We encourage faculty to find alternative ways to finish the term. If not possible, please contact your Department Chair or Dean.
