Extensions of one week

Applications for one week extensions will be assessed by the relevant Unit of Study Coordinator, from Monday 9am – Friday 3pm only. Extension requests received later than 3pm Friday will not be considered until the Unit of Study Coordinator’s next working day.

All students are expected to work on their assignments throughout the semester and assignments must be submitted by the due date, unless written approval for late submission has been obtained. Only one extension of time will be permitted for each assignment item.

An informal application for special consideration (simple extension) may be made in relation to a non-examination task prior to the due date of the assessment, which may result in an extension of up to 5 working days.

An extension application must be submitted to the appropriate unit study coordinator via email only. Students must clearly state out the basis of the extension.

The unit coordinator will respond to the extension request with an outcome via email within 3 working days.

The outcome of your extension will be recorded in the My Grades tool in BlackBoard in the relevant unit of study. Students can access My Grades from the Tools menu after logging into BlackBoard.

NOTE: Subject line of the email must contain the following to be received by the unit of study coordinator:

Re: Extension, UoS Code, Student Name & SID
