Winter and Fall/Winter term final examinations take place Friday, April 16 to Tuesday, April 27, 2021. 

Scheduling and Examination Services have updated their FAQ page to answer online exam-related questions, like what happens if you lose your connection, experience an infrastructure outage or have issues connecting to cuLearn. The format of online examinations may be unfamiliar to some students. You are encouraged to review how to properly navigate the platform prior to taking your exam.

Be sure to check your exam schedule and write down when your exam is taking place and the type of online assessment you will be writing. Please be aware that the examination start and end times are stated in Eastern Daylight Time zone (EDT – Ottawa’s time zone). In the circumstance that you reside in a time zone outside of Canada and your exam is scheduled to take place at an unrealistic time, please submit an exam support ticket to inquire about accommodations.

Being prepared for exams is an important part of your success. Given that Winter term examinations will be held online, you should ensure that you have the proper tools and equipment in place to successfully complete an online exam. If you are located in a country where access to cuLearn is blocked by a firewall, you can use Carleton’s Virtual Private Network (VPN). Be sure to configure the VPN prior to the start of your examination. Should you experience any technical and infrastructure failure while writing your exam, please contact the emergency exam support line.

Exam time is often stressful for students. Make sure you’re taking time for yourself and your mental health by taking breaks, prioritizing your sleep and maintaining good eating habits. If the stress or anxiety is proving to be too much or if you need to talk to someone, check out Carleton’s Health and Counselling Services, available virtually. International students can access International SOS’s Emotional Support service to help you support your mental, emotional and physical well-being.
