Extension Request Form

Online Request for Extension or Defer to Supplemental to Submission Date for Assignment

Students are required to formally apply using the ‘Request for Extension/Defer to supplemental’ online form.  All applications MUST be accompanied by supporting evidence. In the case of illness a medical certificate may be accepted.

It is mandatory to consult the School of Nursing & Midwifery Course Handbook regarding your request. 

Extension Assessment/s: Submission dates for completed work can only be permitted in extenuating circumstances and require supporting documentation (please see School Handbook). Requests for extension must be submitted at least one week prior to the submission date. Each application is considered on an individual basis.

Upon review of the application and supporting evidence by the Course Coordinator or supervisor, students may be permitted a maximum of two weeks extension from the original submission date.

Defer to Supplemental: In the event additional time is required to complete an assignment students are advised to consult with their Course Coordinator or Supervisor regarding the possibility of deferring the assignment to the supplemental. All defer applications are only to be permitted in extenuating circumstances and will require supporting documentation. 

All assessments that are deferred to supplemental are in consultation of your course coordinator/supervisor and in the final judgement of the Dean of Graduate Studies.

Request for deferral must be submitted to PG Admin Team at least two weeks prior to the submission date.

As this will be considered as the first attempt at the assessment(s) you will be given full range of marks. However, if you defer your assessment to the supplemental session and fail, you will need to make a case to the Court of Appeals for another attempt in the next academic year.

Please note extensions are NOT permitted at supplementals.
