Updated - April 30, 2021

Please review the information below for details of the student accommodation procedures for Spring and Summer 2021, including important student activation and exam booking deadlines. Learn more about Exam Accommodations and Accommodation Processes and Delivery, including roles and responsibilities for remote, in-person, and blended accommodation contexts.

PLEASE NOTE: 

  • Activate your accommodations and book ALL eligible exams (including quizzes, tests, midterms, and finals) as soon as you receive your course outlines.
  • ALL exams (including quizzes, tests, midterms, and finals) must be booked in ClockWork in order to receive accommodations.
  • ALL Spring and Summer 2021 exams (including quizzes, tests, midterms, and finals) must be booked at least seven (7) full days before the date of the exam.

Spring and Summer 2021 courses have either standard or non-standard start, end, add/drop, withdrawal, and exam dates. It is imperative that you confirm the specific dates for your course(s) in your course outline(s), and review the Office of the Registrar’s Registration Dates and Deadlines, Non-standard Spring 2021 Deadlines, and the Non-standard Summer 2021 Deadlines.

Activate Your Accommodations
  • Activate your accommodations as soon as you receive your course outline(s).
  • Save a copy of your Letter(s) of Accommodation for your reference.
  • Contact your course instructor(s) early to discuss your accommodations, as required.
Book Your Accommodated Exams
  • Book all ALL Spring and Summer 2021 exams (including quizzes, tests, midterms, and finals) as soon as you receive your course outlines. Your exams must be booked at least seven (7) full days before the date of the exam.
    • Go to the Online Student Services portal
    • Select the Book an Exam icon.
    • Please note: ClockWork defines a full day as beginning at 12:00 a.m. and ending at 11:59 p.m. (Mountain time). Therefore, to book an exam scheduled for Thursday, May 27, 2021, you must submit your request by 11:59 p.m. (Mountain time) on Wednesday, May 19, 2021.

PLEASE NOTE: 

  • The rolling 7-day deadline applies only to Spring and Summer 2021. Fall 2021 and Winter 2022 will have single, fixed activation and exam booking deadlines.
  • It is best to book your exams as early as possible--even if their dates remain tentative--as it can take considerable time to organize exam accommodations. Book now!

Please promptly email arrec@ualberta.ca when

  • you have exams scheduled to occur in the first week of class(es) in your course(s).
  • you have questions, or need to revise or cancel your exam booking.
