Disability Liaison Unit:
If you are suffering from long-term medical condition or disability, you should contact Disability Liaison Unit to seek advice and support to complete your studies.

Please Refer http://www.rmit.edu.au/disability to find more information about services offered by Disability Liaison Unit.

Late submission:
If you require an Extension of Submittable Work (assignments, reports or project work etc.) for 7 calendar days or less (from the original due date) and have valid reasons, you must complete and lodge an Application for Extension of Submittable Work (7 Calendar Days or less) form and lodge it with the Senior Educator/ Program Manager.

The application must be lodged no later than one working day before the official due date. You will be notified within no more than 2 working days of the date of lodgement as to whether the extension has been granted.

If you seek an Extension of Submittable Work for more than 7 calendar days (from the original due date) you must lodge an Application for Special Consideration form under the provisions of the Special Consideration Policy, preferably prior to, but no later than 2 working days after the official due date.

Submittable Work (assignments, reports or project work etc.) submitted late without approval of an extension will not be accepted or marked.

Special consideration:
Special Consideration is a variation to an assessment which takes into account the impact of unexpected or extenuating circumstances which have affected a student’s performance in assessment or prevented them from attempting an assessment task, including an examination.
Please Refer http://www.rmit.edu.au/browse/Current%20students/Administration/Assessment/Special%20consideration/ to find the latest information about the purpose, eligibility and process of special consideration and the online form.

Plagiarism:
Plagiarism is a form of cheating and it is very serious academic offence that may lead to expulsion from the University.
