Special consideration for assessment

You can apply for special consideration for assessment if there are exceptional circumstances beyond your control that may have disadvantaged you in your studies.

Special consideration may be approved, and is intended to assist students who, due to exceptional circumstances beyond their control, have been disadvantaged in comparison to other students.

This process applies to all enrolment options:

  • trimesterised
  • fixed period
  • open.

 The possible outcomes that may be approved are:

  • an extension period to complete an assessment or enrolment
  • transfer of your enrolment to the next available trimester.

Your enrolment cannot be transferred to another person as it is a legal contract between you and Open Polytechnic.
