Extension to Assessment Deadline Policy
|Purpose||To give a student the opportunity to apply for an extension.|
The Faculty of Arts recognises that the management of deadlines is an important aspect of learning and teaching. A student can apply to the unit coordinator for an extension of 2 calendar days for short-term illness, unforeseen employment obligations or family circumstances which would not require any documentation. Approval of the application is at the discretion of the unit coordinator.
Please note: For extensions of 3 or more calendar days, or for sudden illness and unforeseen circumstances affecting final pieces of assessment or exams, Special Consideration should be sought.
Students registered with Monash Sport’s Elite Athlete Support Program are also eligible for special consideration, as are students who are able to demonstrate relevant obligations to military or jury service, or to emergency services (e.g., Country Fire Authority).
Students suffering from chronic illness or long-term disability are eligible for alternative assessment arrangements which can be arranged by registering with the University's Disability Liaison Unit.
