Sent to all students March 19, 2021 - Changes to Academic Standing for the 2020-2021 Academic Year

Dear Students,
As you know, academic standing is assessed once a year at the end of the winter term, and is determined on the basis of your session grade point average (SGPA) and cumulative grade point average (CGPA). Please refer to academic calendar section 10.9 for more information on student performance evaluations.
On March 16, the University Senate decided not to enforce academic suspensions and dismissals at the end of the 2020-2021 academic year. In response to the impacts of COVID-19, all students will be permitted to return to studies in September 2021 regardless of their CGPA and SGPA at the end of the Winter 2021 term.
Dean’s List, Good Standing, and Academic Probation will be recorded on transcripts as usual. Students whose grade point averages would normally place them on suspension or dismissal will have a standing of Readmit - Academic Probation automatically recorded on their transcripts.
There will be no alternate grading option for this term (Conditional Pass/Pass/Fail).
All existing GPA requirements to determine eligibility for both the University General Scholarship and renewal of our Entrance Scholarships remain the same.
We encourage you to reflect on your academic successes and challenges, and to pursue the academic support and wellness services that are available to you on campus.
Please direct questions to me at assocregistrar@mta.ca.

Sent to all students February 19, 2021 - April 2021 Exam Schedule

Dear Students,
This communication provides information regarding the April 2021 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, March 5, 2021)
• what to do if you think you need special accommodations for writing exams (deadline Friday, March 5, 2021)
THE APRIL EXAM SCHEDULE IS POSTED
The April 2021 exam schedule, listed by course, is now available under the heading Exams on the Registrar’s Office website under Schedules and Important Dates.
Your personalized exam schedule is available on Connect@MTA under ‘My Exam Schedule’, indicating when and where your exams will be held.
If your exam is scheduled in multiple locations you will write in the room assigned to you by your course instructor.
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.
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 Friday, March 5, 2021.
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, March 5, 2021.
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 16-24 as indicated in the 2020-2021 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 by Friday, March 5, 2021. 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 2020, 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, March 5, 2021 should plan to write their exams as scheduled.

The following email provides important information regarding:
• Student Accounts
• Government Student Loans
STUDENT ACCOUNTS
• Student accounts have been updated with Winter 2021 term fees (tuition and student fees, residence, meal plan). Mount Allison scholarships have also been allocated to student accounts, in many cases with the name of the donor funding the scholarship. If you have any questions about your scholarship, please contact financialaid@mta.ca.
• Please ensure you are registered for all of your 2021 Winter term courses so that your student account will reflect the correct amount owing. January 29, 2021 is the last day for registration in Winter term 3 credit courses.
• Account information will be updated daily until Tuesday, December 22, after which offices will be closed for the Holidays, and beginning again on Monday, January 4, 2021, when offices reopen. PLEASE NOTE: any changes to your registration, residence and meal plan could affect the amount owing on your account.
• You can view your student account statement at any time using your Connect@MTA account. You can print the information from your Connect account if you require an invoice from Mount Allison.
• Monday, February 1, 2021 is the last day to pay your account balance without penalty.
• We strongly encourage you to make your payment using on-line banking. If you are not already set up for on-line banking, please contact your financial institution. The on-line payment option is available only if you bank at a Canadian financial institution. For more information visit our webpage on fee payments. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer a credit-card payment option.
• If you have any questions about your account or about student loans or bursaries, please contact us at regoffice@mta.ca or by phone at 364-2269 (Monday to Friday, from 10:00am to 12:00pm and from 1:00pm to 3:00pm)
• If there are others who require your account information to make payments to your account you can provide that information to them by printing a copy of your account statement and giving it to them directly. Otherwise, you may authorize release of account information to a third party by completing the Release of Information Consent form.
GOVERNMENT STUDENT LOANS
• Most provinces have adopted an online process for government student loans. Students who have applied for government student loans should have received student loan information directly from their provincial government.
• Students whose government student loan is delayed may request a student account payment deferral. To request a payment deferral,
o Email regoffice@mta.ca with Subject Line: Account Payment Deferral
o Please include the following information in the email: your full name and your home province
• To request a payment deferral for any other reason (e.g. did not receive enough financial aid to cover costs and cannot pay account balance on time) contact Shane Carroll in Financial Services by email to accountsreceivable@mta.ca.
Best wishes for the holiday season,
Sarah

1) Exam procedures
You are advised to recheck the final exam schedule posted on the Registrar’s Office website 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 for important reminders and rules, including:

• All students must wear a community (non-medical) mask when writing an exam on campus.
• If your exam is scheduled in multiple locations go to the room assigned to you by your course instructor.
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 this information about exam accommodations 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. When the completed form is submitted 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.

Sent to all students November 13, 2020 - Revised December 2020 Exam Schedule

 

 

 

 

 

Dear students,
This communication provides information regarding revisions to the December 2020 Exam Schedule, including:
• changes to the exam schedule
• where the schedule is posted
• what to do if changes to the schedule cause an exam conflict
• what to do if you think you need special accommodations for writing exams
CHANGES TO THE DECEMBER EXAM SCHEDULE
There have been a number of changes to the December exam schedule. Please take a moment to review the revised schedule to confirm whether your classes have a final exam, and to take note of the day, time, and location of the exam.
The revised exam schedule includes:
• extensive location changes
• the removal of several courses from the schedule (take-home exams will be issued instead)
• the addition of one course to the schedule
• a delivery method change for one course (from an in-person to online format)
• a change of date and time for one course
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic no final exams will be held in the Athletic Centre Gymnasium. To accommodate class sizes, a number of exams will be held across multiple locations. If your exam is scheduled in multiple locations go to the room assigned to you by your course instructor.
THE REVISED DECEMBER EXAM SCHEDULE IS POSTED
The revised December 2020 exam schedule, listed by course, is now available under the heading Exams on the Registrar’s Office website.
Your personalized exam schedule is available on Connect@MTA under ‘My Exam Schedule’, indicating when and where your exams will be held. If your exam is scheduled in multiple locations go to the room assigned to you by your course instructor.
Students are advised to re-check the final exam schedule 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@MTA to reflect any further changes that may occur, 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.
WHAT TO DO IF CHANGES TO THE SCHEDULE CAUSE AN EXAM CONFLICT
Date and time changes on the revised schedule are very limited and we do not expect them to cause scheduling problems. However, students who believe changes to the schedule have resulted in 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 Monday, November 16, 2020. 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 Monday, November 16, 2020.
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. Please be advised that travel arrangements made prior to or after the exam schedule has been posted generally do not constitute consideration for special accommodation.
Thank you for your understanding and attention to these changes.

 Sent to all students October 13, 2020 - December 2020 Exam Schedule 

 Dear students,
This communication provides information regarding the December 2020 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 30, 2020)
• what to do if you think you need special accommodations for writing exams (deadline Friday, October 30, 2020)
THE DECEMBER EXAM SCHEDULE IS POSTED
The December 2020 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.
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 from 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 Friday, October 30, 2020.
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 30, 2020.
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 4 - 12 as indicated in the 2020-2021 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 Friday, October 30, 2020. 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 2020, 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 30, 2020 should plan to write their exams as scheduled.
