Special Consideration Regulations
These Regulations came into force on 22 February 2016.
A student may apply for special consideration for a late withdrawal where the student has been prevented from completing the course(s), due to circumstances beyond the student’s control or that were not reasonably foreseeable, and was unable to withdraw from the course(s) by the published withdrawal deadline.
If the grounds for an application for special consideration for late withdrawal are accepted by the Special Consideration Panel, then the relevant dean will determine, in consultation with the relevant course coordinator(s), whether to approve late withdrawal. Approval will be determined on the basis of evidence as to degree to which the student has completed or engaged in the course of study. Notification of the decision will come from the Records, Examinations and Graduation Office.
