Exam Booking Deadline

If you need the SAS Exam Centre for any midterms or final exams this semester, you need to submit your booking by this Friday.  Similarly, if you need to make a change to an exam you've already booked (e.g. because the format has changed, or your accommodations have changed), the deadline to do so is this Friday too.

Don't forget: if you drop a course or end up deferring an exam, you need to cancel your booking to avoid a $20 no-show fee.

U of G Announces Vaccination Mandate

President Charlotte Yates announced today that the University will be mandating vaccinations for the U of G community including faculty, staff and students at our Guelph and Ridgetown Campuses, and indoors at all U of G-managed field stations. This mandate is in place for the balance of the 2021-22 academic year. It is important to note that individuals who cannot be vaccinated based on medical or other grounds recognized by the Ontario Human Rights Code can request an accommodation.

Nervous about returning to campus?

We've heard from a number of students who are feeling apprehensive about returning to campus in the fall, which is understandable given that we've all spent the last year and a half learning and working from home. Sometimes these concerns are disability-related, in which case please speak with your SAS advisor. Below are some tips to think about if your concerns are not disability-related, or if you're simply looking for additional options to consider.
