Certification of supporting documentation
With many of the student admin forms you may be required to submit additional supporting documentation.
All supporting documentation must be provided either as:
In some instances, you may need to submit a Commonwealth statutory declaration.
A Commonwealth statutory declaration is only to be used in circumstances where you cannot obtain any other supporting documentation for an application such as special consideration, special exams, or fees remissions.
A Commonwealth statutory declaration is a written statement that allows a person to declare something to be true, and they must be signed in the presence of someone who is on the list of authorised witnesses (opens an external website).
Statutory declaration forms are available from the Attorney-General's Department website (opens an external website).
Submitting an appeal
If you are submitting an appeal to UTS, you should provide evidence to support what you have claimed in your appeal letter.
- Doctor's certificate (the length and severity of illness)
- Employer's letter
- Counsellor's letter of support (the counselling service will generally only provide statements for excluded students who have attended the service prior to their exclusion)
- Religious leader or University lecturer's letter of support
- Letter from parent/family member.
If none of the above are appropriate or available, you may provide a Statutory Declaration.
