Have you thought about a Short Extension?

Short Extensions are for students who require an extension between 1-7 days on their assessment.

You will need to refer to your course outline to determine if your assessment is eligible for a Short Extension* before you apply.

Supporting documentation is not required for this kind of extension and you will receive immediate approval.

If you have any questions, please refer to the FAQs on the Special Consideration website or contact the The Nucleus: Student Hub.

* Not all assessments are eligible for a Short Extension. Eligibility is at the discretion of your course convenor and will be indicated in the assessment section of the course outline.

Short Extension Portal for Staff

The following portal is to be accessed by staff only to opt in for Short Extensions. For more information on how to do this, please refer to the User Guide or Frequently Asked Questions for staff.
