It's exam season -- remember to get rest between studying and completing exams and final assignments. If you become sick or have special considerations to write your exam or submit final coursework at a later date, you can request a deferred standing. Visit the Student Health website for more well-being tips and resources.

Tip: Dress appropriately for the weather and during your exams. Bring a jacket, and wear a sweater if it's cold out! 

You must present photo identification during your examination period. The following forms will be accepted:

  • physical/mobile YU-card with a photo;
  • physical/mobile YU-card without a photo plus another form of photo identification, such as a driver’s license or passport;
  • A government-issued photo ID, such as a driver's license or a passport.

Students with mobile YU-card and wearable devices: Please follow the guidance of the exam invigilator/instructor on the use of mobile YU-cards and the placement of mobile phones during exams. If you have a mobile YU-card, you should bring an alternate government-issued photo ID with you for easier exam check-in. See the Exam Tip Sheet page for more information.
