This memo is intended for May 2018 Prospective Grads and contains information on the following:


1) Revised Prospective Grad list - please review and report any discrepancies by Friday, February 9
2) Convocation - Monday, May 14, 2018  

3) Extra Tickets for Convocation - request form available online until Friday, April 6,  2018.  

 
1. REVISED MAY 2018 PROSPECTIVE GRAD LIST  

·         The revised May 2018 Prospective Grad List has been posted on the Registrar's Office page at http://www.mta.ca/registrar : click on the heading applications for graduation and graduating students lists , scroll down to the section 'Graduating Student Lists' and click on the May Grad List .

·         If your name WAS  listed on the May 2018 Preliminary Prospective Grad List in December , and if you made any changes to your registration since November or received a failing grade in any Fall term course and you did NOT request a recheck, your name could still be on the list but it is possible that your eligibility for May 2018 graduation may be in jeopardy if your registration in Winter term courses does not fulfill degree requirements.

It is ultimately your responsibility to ensure that your registration fulfills degree requirements.   

Students are STRONGLY encouraged to consult with the Academic Advisor ( advisor@mta.ca ) or the Registrar ( registrar@mta.ca ) BEFORE making any changes to Winter term registration that could impact their eligibility for graduation.

The revised list includes:  

·         additions of those students from whom we received a late application for May 2018 Graduation and whose registration as of the date of the degree audit review gives them enough potential credits to graduate in May as per the calendar regulations.    Those students should already have received an email from the Academic Advisor confirming that their name has been added to the revised Prospective Grad list.

·         students who received a 'Degree Audit Problem' email from the Academic Advisor in December and who have since made changes to their registration such that their registration as of the date of the degree audit recheck  gives them enough potential credits to graduate in May. Those students should already have received an email from the Academic Advisor confirming that their record has been rechecked and their name has been added to the revised Prospective Grad list.

·         Records have also been re-checked for those students who submitted a 'Prospective Grad List Problems' form requesting a recheck.  Those students should already have received an email from the Academic Advisor confirming that their record has been rechecked. If you requested a recheck and did not receive confirmation that the recheck has been done, please contact advisor@mta.ca right away.  

·         corrections to name/ degree program/ home town, if requested.  

Letters of Permission (LOP):  

·         Prospective Grads who have been approved to take courses on Letter of Permission at another university during the 17/SS, 17/FA and/or 18/WI terms are responsible for ensuring that an official transcript with final grades is sent directly from the Host institution to arrive at Mount Allison, Registrar's Office by April 30, 2018 on the understanding that these courses may have been factored into the review of your degree requirements for purposes of the degree audit process. 

If your name is on the list, please check the following:  


1.Spelling of name (this is how it will appear on your Diploma and in the Convocation Program)
2.Major, Minor, Honours
3.Home Town (this is what will appear in the Convocation Program)

  • If there are problems with any of the items above, please email graduation@mta.caby Friday, February 9.  
  • If your name is not on the revised list and you think it should be, please email graduation@mta.caby Friday, February 9.  
  • If your plans have changed and you no longer intend to graduate in May 2018 you should withdraw your Application for May 2018 Graduation by contacting graduation@mta.ca  

2. Convocation is scheduled for Monday, May 14, 2018.   

·         Master of Science, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Commerce degrees, and Honours certificates in Science or Commerce will be conferred during the MORNING ceremony, which begins at 9:30 a.m.

  • Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Music degrees, and Honours certificates in Arts  will be conferred during the AFTERNOON ceremony, which begins at 2:30 p.m. 

Information about 2018 Spring Convocation is available on the web at http://www.mta.ca/convocation/ .  Some information may not yet finalized but will be updated as it becomes available.

3. Extra Tickets for Convocation  -

·         At Convocation, admission for guests is by ticket only.     Each Prospective Grad should receive four reserved Convocation tickets for guests.  (Graduating students do not require tickets to attend their own graduation ceremony).

·         Prospective Grads who require extra tickets for Convocation may request extra tickets  by completing the 'Extra Tickets' request form.  PLEASE DO NOT SEND REQUESTS VIA EMAIL.   

·         The 'Extra Tickets' request form should be submitted by Friday, April 6 , 2018  to request extra tickets. Students who have requested extra tickets can confirm the number of tickets they will be eligible to receive by e-mailing graduation@mta.caafter April 16, 2018 .

This communication provides information regarding the April 2018 Exam Schedule, including :
•    where the schedule is posted
•    an explanation of consecutive exams
•    what to do if you have 3 or more consecutive  exams (deadline Wednesday, February 28, 2018) 
•    what to do if you think you need special accommodations for writing exams (deadline Wednesday, February 28, 2018)   

The April 2018 Exam Schedule is Posted  

The April 2018 exam schedule, listed by course, is now available under the heading Exams on the web at http://www.mta.ca/Community/Academics/Registrars_Office/Schedules_and_Important_Dates/Schedules___important_dates/  . Your personalized exam schedule is available on CONNECT under 'My Exam Schedule', indicating when and where your exams will be held. To access your own personalized exam schedule go to the Mount Allison home page at www.mta.ca , and click CONNECT@MTA which appears in the menu bar across the top of the screen.

Students are advised to re-check the final exam schedule posted on the web prior to exams to make sure they have noted the correct date, time and location of their final exams. The exam schedule will be updated on the web and in CONNECT to reflect any changes that may occur since the original posting, so it is wise to check the schedule again prior to the start of exams to ensure you have noted the right time and location.                                                                                                                                                 

PLEASE NOTE : Correspondence course exams are also listed in your personalized exam schedule that is available on CONNECT under 'My Exam Schedule', indicating when and where your exams will be held. Additionally, correspondence exams are listed on the April Exam Schedule posted online http://www.mta.ca/Community/Academics/Registrars_Office/Schedules_and_Important_Dates/Schedules___important_dates/  (see Correspondence  at the bottom of the schedule). Please make note of the date and time. All correspondence course exams are scheduled at the same date and time.


Definition of Three Consecutive Exams
Scenario 1: exams at 9:00, 2:00 and 7:00 on the same day
Scenario 2: exams at 2:00 and 7:00 on the same day and 9:00 a.m. the next day
Scenario 3: exams at 7:00 p.m. on one day and 9:00 and 2:00 on the next day

These are the only three scenarios which qualify as three consecutive exams.

What to do if you have 3 or more CONSECUTIVE exams or an Exam Conflict
In a very few cases, the exam schedule may result in some students having three consecutive  exams (see definition above). Please note that there is no Senate policy prohibiting three consecutive exams occurring. However, upon request, the Registrar's Office will attempt to assist students in getting one of the exams re-scheduled if the student has three or more consecutive exams. Students who require special accommodation through the Meighen Centre or the International Centre which allows for additional time to write an exam, should consult with the Registrar's Office to determine if they qualify for accommodation for the writing of consecutive exams.

Students who believe they have three consecutive exams and wish assistance with attempting to have one of those exams re-scheduled, should contact the Registrar's Office at exams@mta.ca  by Wednesday, February 28, 2018.  

   

Students who believe they have an exam conflict  such that two exams are scheduled at the exact same time (e.g. two correspondence exams or a correspondence exam and an on-campus course exam) should contact the Registrar's Office at exams@mta.ca by Wednesday, February 28, 2018.  


If it is confirmed that you have three consecutive exams or an exam conflict, we will attempt to reschedule one of your exams, in consultation with the instructor(s). We will be in touch with you as soon as possible to let you know what your new exam schedule will be. Your exam could be re-scheduled for any time within the official final exam period of April 12-21 as indicated in the 2017-2018 Academic Calendar.  Students should keep this in mind when planning travel arrangements.  Please note, in the case of consecutive exams, if you are not happy with the accommodations that have been made in your revised schedule, the alternative will be to write the exams at the originally scheduled times.

What to do if you think you need special accommodations for writing exams    
Students, who think they need special accommodations for exam writing for reasons other than those that are accommodated through the Meighen Centre or the International Centre, should complete the Application for Exam Accommodation which is available online at http://www.mta.ca/Community/Academics/Registrars_Office/Forms/Exam_accommodation_request_form/ by Wednesday, February 28, 2018. If it is determined that your circumstances warrant consideration for special accommodation, we will attempt to accommodate your request in consultation with the instructor(s). Please be advised that since the exam period has been available in the Calendar of Events in the Academic Calendar since April 2017, travel arrangements made prior to or after the exam schedule has been posted generally do not constitute consideration for special accommodation.

Please Note:    Students who do not identify problems with their exam schedule by Wednesday, February 28, 2018 should plan to write their exams as scheduled.

Best of luck with your studies this term

 To all Students,

 

This e-mail contains information on the following topics:

1) exam procedures
2) what to do if you cannot write an exam due to illness or other reason
3) access to GRADES

   

1) Exam Procedures

You are advised to recheck the final exam schedule posted on the web at http://www.mta.ca/Registrars_Office/Schedules_and_important_dates/Schedules___important_dates/ or your personalized exam schedule on Connect@MTA to make sure you have noted the correct date, time and location of your final exams.

Please also refer to the Exam Procedures for Students at  http://www.mta.ca/Registrars_Office/Academic_regulations/Exams/Exams/.   You are reminded to bring your Mount Allison Student ID to each exam. If you have lost your ID, please be sure to have with you another form of picture ID, such as a Driver's License. 

 

Please note that phones and wearable technology are not permitted in exams. If you bring these items to your exam you will be asked to place it at the front of the exam room along with any other personal items (e.g. coats, back packs, handbags) and MtA will not be held responsible for any lost items.     

   

2)  What to do if you cannot write your exam due to illness or other reason  

 

Please refer to the Application for Exam Accommodation at http://www.mta.ca/Registrars_Office/Academic_regulations/Exams/Exam_accommodation/Exam_accommodation/ for acceptable circumstances under which a student may apply for exam accommodation.

Students who feel they are unable to write a final exam due to illness or for other compassionate reason, should complete an Application for Exam Accommodation ( http://www.mta.ca/Registrars_Office/Forms/Exam_accommodation_request_form/ ) . When the completed form is submitted, either electronically or directly to the Registrar's Office, a decision to grant or deny a request will be rendered. The Registrar's Office will contact the student by email with the decision and action, if applicable.

Other circumstances  which may seriously affect a student's ability to write an exam may be discussed with the Director of Student Life, a Student Development Counselor, or the University Chaplain.



3) Access to grades

Grades will be posted on Connect@MTA as they become available starting on Monday, December 18, 2017. Faculty make every effort to submit their final grades as soon as possible after the end of the exam period. Your patience and understanding while end of term papers and exams are being graded is appreciated. Normally final grades for Fall term courses will be submitted to the Registrar's Office before the University closes for the holiday at 4:30 on December 22, although in some instances grades may not be available until the day before the start of Winter term courses on Monday, January 8.  (see academic regulation 10.9.2 - Reporting of Grades, section c) i) at http://www.mta.ca/academic_calendar/_10.html#_10.9.2 )

 

On behalf of the staff in the Registrar's Office, we wish you every success with your end of term papers and final exams.

Dear students,

This communication provides information regarding the December 2017 Exam Schedule, including :
•    where the schedule is posted
•    an explanation of consecutive exams
•    what to do if you have 3 or more consecutive  exams (deadline Friday, October 20, 2017)
•    what to do if you think you need special accommodations for writing exams (deadline Friday, October 20, 2017)  

The DECEMBER 2017 Exam Schedule is Posted  

The December 2017 exam schedule, listed by course, is now available under the heading Exams on the web at http://www.mta.ca/Registrars_Office/Schedules_and_important_dates/Schedules___important_dates/ . Your personalized exam schedule is available on CONNECT under 'My Exam Schedule', indicating when and where your exams will be held. To access your own personalized exam schedule go to the Mount Allison home page at www.mta.ca , and click CONNECT@MTA which appears in the menu bar across the top of the screen.

Students are advised to re-check the final exam schedule posted on the web prior to exams to make sure they have noted the correct date, time and location of their final exams. The exam schedule will be updated on the web and in CONNECT to reflect any changes that may occur since the original posting so it is wise to check the schedule again prior to the start of exams to ensure you have noted the right time and location.  

PLEASE NOTE : Correspondence course exams are also listed in your personalized exam schedule that is available on CONNECT under 'My Exam Schedule', indicating when and where your exams will be held. Additionally, correspondence exams are listed on the December Exam Schedule posted online http://www.mta.ca/Registrars_Office/Schedules_and_important_dates/Schedules___important_dates/ . Please make note of the date and time.


Definition of Three Consecutive Exams
Scenario 1: exams at 9:00, 2:00 and 7:00 on the same day
Scenario 2: exams at 2:00 and 7:00 on the same day and 9:00 a.m. the next day
Scenario 3: exams at 7:00 p.m. on one day and 9:00 and 2:00 on the next day

These are the only three scenarios which qualify as three consecutive exams.

What to do if you have 3 or more CONSECUTIVE exams or an Exam Conflict
In a very few cases, the exam schedule may result in some students having three consecutive  exams (see definition above). Please note that there is no Senate policy prohibiting three consecutive exams occurring. However, upon request, the Registrar's Office will attempt to assist students in getting one of the exams re-scheduled if the student has three or more consecutive exams. Students who require special accommodation through the Meighen Center or the International Centre which allows for additional time to write an exam, should consult with the Registrar's Office to determine if they qualify for accommodation for the writing of consecutive exams.

Students who believe they have three consecutive exams and wish assistance with attempting to have one of those exams re-scheduled should contact the Registrar's Office at exams@mta.ca  by Friday, October 20, 2017.  

   

Students who believe they have an exam conflict  such that two exams are scheduled at the exact same time should contact the Registrar's Office at exams@mta.ca  by Friday, October 20, 2017.  


If it is confirmed that you have three consecutive exams or an exam conflict, we will attempt to reschedule one of your exams, in consultation with the instructor(s). We will be in touch with you as soon as possible to let you know what your new exam schedule will be. Your exam could be re-scheduled for any time within the official final exam period  of December 7-16 as indicated in the 2017-2018 Academic Calendar.  Students should keep this in mind when planning travel arrangements.  Please note, in the case of consecutive exams, if you are not happy with the accommodations that have been made in your revised schedule, the alternative will be to write the exams at the originally scheduled times.

What to do if you think you need special accommodations for writing exams    
Students who think they need special accommodations for exam writing for reasons other than those that are accommodated through the Meighen Center or the International Centre should complete the Application for Exam Accommodation which is available online at http://www.mta.ca/Community/Academics/Registrars_Office/Forms/Exam_accommodation_request_form/ by Friday, October 20, 2017 .  If it is determined that your circumstances warrant consideration for special accommodation, we will attempt to accommodate your request in consultation with the instructor(s). Please be advised that since the exam period has been available in the Calendar of Events in the Academic Calendar since April 2017, travel arrangements made prior to or after the exam schedule has been posted generally do not constitute consideration for special accommodation.

Please Note:    Students who do not identify problems with their exam schedule by Friday, October 20, 2017  should plan to write their exams as scheduled.

Best of luck with your studies this term,

We are working through them and will contact you if clarification is required. Thank you for your help in this.
