What is student academic consideration?
At the University of Wollongong, we understand that life happens. Academic Consideration is intended to help minimise the impact of short-term events that are beyond your control (compassionate, compelling or extenuating circumstances).
Such events may significantly impair your ability to complete an assessment task on or by the due date as stipulated in the Subject Outline; or which affects your progress in a subject relevant to your course of study.
The Student Academic Consideration Policy provides further information.
When to apply?
You must apply for Academic Consideration as soon as possible after the issue occurs. At a minimum you must apply prior to the due date for an assessment task or before sitting an exam. If you become unwell or an extenuating circumstance occurs during an exam, which prevents you from completing the exam, you must notify your exam invigilator immediately.
