Update 19 August 2021 - 7 day rolling assessment extensions 

In response to the current lockdown and COVID restrictions, RMIT has extended the maximum length of assessment extensions that can be approved by your School.

Your School is now able to approve rolling assessment extensions in blocks of 7 calendar days. Find out more on the extensions of time webpage.

If unexpected circumstances beyond your control have affected your ability to complete an assessment, you may be eligible to apply for special consideration. 

Before you apply, check whether special consideration is the right type of assessment adjustment for you.

Special consideration is made available by the University on the understanding that students will use it sparingly and only in cases of proven genuine need.
