Resulting conflicts will not merit academic concession.
You may be eligible for academic concession if your circumstances fall within certain categories. An academic concession is a special allowance determined by your instructors and/or the Undergraduate Office for you to make up missed coursework or an exam at a later date or by alternate means.
Please review the UBC Academic Concession policy as outlined on the Calendar before submitting a request.
If you need to request an academic concession*, please choose the category that you believe most accurately reflects your situation and read the instructions carefully. You should submit a request within 48 hours of the missed coursework, exam, or deadline.
Refer to your course syllabi to understand which circumstances will require you to submit a request for academic concession and how concessions will be applied in each course if your request is approved. You should inform your instructor—as soon as possible—of any absence and confirm your understanding of how concessions will be applied in their course. Please note that once an exam has started, the grade earned will stand and there will be no additional opportunity to increase the mark.
If your concession request for a final exam or final term coursework is approved, you will be granted a Deferred Standing (or Standing Deferred) and a notation of ‘SD’ will be added to the course on your academic record. Your course grade will remain incomplete until you have completed all coursework.
