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.
Approval for late submission will only be granted where the student can show good cause such as evidence of serious ongoing illness, or extreme and unpredictable circumstances. Only one extension of time will be permitted for each assignment item.
Outcomes of your application will now be advised via the My Grades tool in BlackBoard. Students can access My Grades from the Tools menu after logging into BlackBoard, and also from the menu of each individual site. Students who apply for Special Consideration or One Week Extension are advised to check the My Grades tool for confirmation 3 to 5 working days after submission. No further communication will be sent to students.
Applications for one week extensions will be assessed by the relevant Director or the Associate Dean (Learning and Teaching).
