DE Courses & Online Quizzes

This page applies to students who are registered in a degree program at the University of Guelph and who are taking a Distance Education (DE) course.  Students who are taking a course through Open Learning and who are not registered in a UofG degree program, should contact OpenEd about their accommodation needs.


Midterms and tests must be booked at least 7 days in advance, and no later than the 40th class day. In addition, all final exams must be booked by the 40th class day.

Online Quizzes, Tests & Exams

Additional time for online tests and quizzes is administered directly by the course instructor.  New for fall 2019: if we know that a course has timed online quizzes, we will notify the instructor of the need for additional time when appropriate.  Login to Accessibility Online and click on the title of the course.  If it says "unknown" next to "Online Quizzes" then we don't know if we need to update the instructor or not.  If there are timed online quizzes, send an email to your SAS Advisor and we'll update our records and the instructor.

DE Courses: Writing exams on the Guelph Campus

UofG degree students are asked to register with SAS and follow the same procedures as for any other test or exam. 

Writing in Another City

In order to ensure that you have met both SAS and Open Learning requirements for booking exams you must register with SAS, and complete the "Final Examination Information Form" on the final exams web page posted by OpenEd. 

This form must be completed before the deadline or you will be charged a late fee of $30. Tick the box that indicates that you are registered with SAS and are requesting exam accommodations.
