Simple Extensions

A simple extension is an assessment extension of up to 2 working days which is granted to a student by the Unit of Study Co-ordinator. For extensions of more than 2 working days, students must apply for special consideration.

How to Apply

  • You must request a simple extension directly from your Unit of Study Co-ordinator.
  • Your request should be made in writing, prior to the due date for assessment where possible, and should be accompanied by supporting medical documentation or a Statutory Declaration.
  • Simple extensions are not available for exams, including take-home exams.
  • If a simple extension is not granted, or if you are requesting an extension of more than 2 working days, you can apply for special consideration.
  • Regardless of the outcome of a simple extension request, you should attempt to submit your assessment as soon as possible.
