Extensions


A short extension may be granted if the request is made prior to the assessment due date.

Please direct your request for extension to the Unit Coordinator by email including your Course Director.

An extension may be granted for up to five calendar days if you are experiencing short term exceptional circumstances such as illness, carer responsibilities or car accident. If granted, the length of time provided will be appropriate to your circumstances.

For extensions longer than five calendar days, you must apply for in-semester special consideration.

Penalties for late submission

If you submit an assessment after the due date without an approved extension, you will receive a late-submission penalty of 10 per cent of the available marks in that task. A further penalty of 10 per cent of the available marks will be applied for each additional week, or part thereof, the assessment task is overdue.

Tasks submitted more than four weeks after the due date will receive a mark of zero for that task. You may not receive feedback on any assessments that receive a mark of zero due to a late-submission penalty.
