Extensions are reserved for exceptional circumstances only and are not granted automatically. Under exceptional circumstances (eg illness, accident, bereavement or critical personal circumstances) individual students may be granted an extension of the due date for an assignment. There is, however, a limit to the length of time that an extension can be granted and this should be negotiated with the Course Lecturer in the first instance. Extensions will not normally be given for longer than one week from the due date, unless exceptional circumstances prevail. Extensions are not granted automatically to students.
Requests for extensions should be emailed to the Lecturer at least two days prior to the due date for the assignment. A copy of the lecturer’s email confirming the extension (if granted) and other relevant evidence of special circumstances (eg a letter from a counsellor, medical certificate) must be attached to and submitted with the assignment. Extensions will not normally be granted because of pressure of university study, eg several pieces of work being due at about the same time. Students are encouraged to plan their work in a realistic manner and in advance so that they can meet their assessment deadlines.
No resubmissions unless a minor detail needs to be dealt with.
FLO students are to submit hard copy Assignments with a Cover Sheet to the College of Education.
