Extension of time

Students are required to submit or complete assessment tasks by or on the due date. Due to extenuating circumstances students may apply for an extension of time from the due date. The type of extension time and the process involved depends on the difficulty being experienced.

Minor difficulty — short extension
Where illness or misadventure beyond a student’s control has a short term effect on the student’s preparation for, or capacity to submit/complete, an assessment task by or on the due date:

  • Students should notify the lecturer/tutor of their reason for extension by email on or before the due date of the assessment item.
  • Lecturer/tutor can grant an extension of time up to one week and will notify the student by return email of the new due date.
  • The student should attach a copy of the email received from their lecturer/tutor to their assessment item.

Significant difficulty — special consideration
If you are experiencing significant difficulty, or anticipate that you will experience significant difficulty in meeting assessment requirements, you may apply for special consideration.

Significant difficulties may include serious illness or psychological conditions; loss or bereavement; hardship or trauma; or being a victim of crime.

UTS: Student admin provides further information and application details on special consideration.
