Extensions
 
A student who experiences unforeseen circumstances beyond the student’s control which inhibit the student from submission of an Assessment Task by the due date may apply for an extension. Students who have ongoing issues which make submission of work difficult are advised to consult the Inclusion Policy.

  1. serious illness or injury of the student
  2. pregnancy or childbirth for the student or the student’s partner
  3. serious illness or bereavement of an immediate family member
  4. serious upheaval or disaster
  5. traumatic experience
  6. legal responsibilities, such as jury service
  7. military service or emergency services responsibilities
  8. unexpected employment commitments, such as being sent overseas for an extended period
Do not usually include:
  1. Normal work requirements
  2. Church and mission commitments
