Gaining an extension for your Arts assignment

How do I apply for an extension on the due-date for my assignment?

You can apply for an extension on your assignment date by submitting a Special Consideration form at your allocated Student Office, either in person or via "Email Us". You need to provide relevant documentation to support an application for extension.

Applications must be submitted no later than three University working days after the assessment is due. Extensions are generally only approved in exceptional circumstances such as illness or where significant personal difficulties have had an adverse effect on your academic performance.

If you have been granted an extension by way of Special Consideration, your allocated Student Office will inform you if you have been given a new submission date or if you need to negotiate this with your Unit Coordinator.

If your Special Consideration application is unsuccessful, you are likely to receive a penalty for late submission if you submit your assignment after the due date.

More information about Special Consideration can be found in University Policies.
