These procedures are no longer available in printed form.

NEW INSTRUCTIONS for STUDENTS and PROCEDURES for the CONDUCT of EXAMINATIONS
Students are required to show their Memorial photo identification cards in order to be permitted to write their final examinations.
Effective Winter Semester 2012, a student registered in a distance course will be required to present both a Memorial Campus Card ID and a piece of government-issued photo identification to invigilators prior to writing tests and examinations. It is the responsibility of the exam invigilator to determine if the likeness between the two pieces of ID is true. A student will not be permitted to write the exam if the invigilator does not find a match between both photos. Distance students can obtain their Campus Cards by following the instructions at http://www.mun.ca/answers/about/.
Information about instructions and procedures for the conduct of examinations is available here.
RELEASE of FINAL GRADES
Printed grade reports are no longer mailed to students. Grades will be officially released through Memorial Self-Service beginning at 5 p.m. on June 26 for Intersession courses, and on August 16 for 14-week Spring Semester and Summer Session courses.
Memorial has a learning management system, Desire2Learn, for all distance students and on-campus students who have registered for a course that will feature a web-based component. Increasingly, courses delivered on campus will supplement face-to-face teaching with web-based tools to share course notes, have discussion forums, etc. To access your course, visit the DELTS website and click on the "Log On To Your Web Course" link. If you need help on campus to set up your account, you can visit the Commons in the QEll Library.

Distance Education Course Information Letters and notification of term tests and exam dates, times and locations are available through the Distance Education menu in Memorial Self-Service and in Desire2 Learn. This information is not mailed to students.
