The Student Accessibility and Inclusion (SAI) team offers personalised assistance for students living with a disability who are studying at UOW. We use reasonable adjustments, provided through Access Plans, to enable students with disability to participate in education on the same basis as students without disability.

Assignment Submission

Refer to each subjects' moodle site for details on assessment requirements and submission.

Student Grievance Process

For information about dealing with a grievance concerning assessable work or any other type of decision or action of a staff member, see the University’s policy for dealing with student grievances. You can also contact a Student Support Coordinator (SSC) via ssa-eis@uow.edu.au.

Use of Calculators in Examinations

The normal School Policy is that only the calculators approved by the Board of Studies are approved for use in examinations.

Academic Consideration

Academic Consideration is intended to help minimise the impact of compassionate, compelling or extenuating circumstances beyond a student’s control, which significantly impair a student’s ability to complete an assessment task on or by the due date as stipulated in the Subject Outline; or which affects Academic Progress in a subject relevant to their course of study. 

Student Enquiries

Student Central is your primary point of contact during your studies at UOW. Staff at Student Central can assist you with a range of enquiries, from enrolment through to graduation and beyond. Student Central aim to ensure students have access to the information they need, at the time they need it. Student Central can be contacted via phone, email or in-person at our Wollongong campus.
