Exams, Crowdmarking and due dates for final marks

As a result of increased demand for printed final examinations and midterms, W Print has set out the following guidelines to ensure timely completion of all printed exam materials.

Deadline: Your final examination or midterm master must be submitted to W Print 72 hours before the scheduled exam. This deadline ensures that W Print has adequate time to have your exam printed and ready for pick up in the General Services Complex (GSC).

  • For final exams that are set to “Scheduled and Administered” in Odyssey, you must adhere to the specific deadlines set out by the Registrar’s Office (RO) for the RO to pay for the printing costs. If the RO’s deadline is missed, it reverts to the 72-hour W Print deadline and printing costs will be billed to the department.
  • If you miss the 72-hour cut off, W Print cannot guarantee your exams will be printed before your exam session. If W Print cannot complete your exam printing before your session, you will need to print your exams within your department.

Submission option #1: Odyssey

If you are using Odyssey to upload your final exams or midterms, you must approve your exam master no later than 72 hours prior to your scheduled exam time. This is the time frame in which your exam master will then be automatically sent to W Print. If you miss this deadline, you will need to print your exams within your department.

Submission option #2: Directly to W Print

You can send your exam master directly to W Print via flash drive, email, or deliver it in person. You must complete the W Print Requisition Form. Any exam masters sent to W Print without the print requisition form will be sent back to be resubmitted and will incur a delay.

Picking up exam printing

You will be notified by W Print when your exam printing is ready for pick up at GSC.
