It is a University requirement that a student’s work complies with the Academic Policy,

sanctions. For information on this Policy please refer to Chapter 4.20 on Student Academic
Integrity at the following website:

internally or by a plagiarism checking service, and be held for future checking and
Retain duplicate copy
Before submitting the assignment, you are advised to retain electronic copies of original
work. In the event of any uncertainty regarding the submission of assessment items, you
may be requested to reproduce a final copy.
School Extension Policy
In general, I will NOT give extension unless there are exceptional circumstances. Students
wanting an extension must make a request at least 24 hours before the assessment item is
due and the request must be received in writing at the “Special Consideration” page.
Extensions within 24 hours of submission or following the submission deadline will not be
granted (unless supported by a doctor’s certificate or where there are exceptional
circumstances – this will be at unit assessor’s discretion and will be considered on a case
by case basis). Extensions will be for a maximum of 48 hours (longer extensions supported
by a doctor’s certificate or alike to be considered on a case by case basis).
A penalty of 5% of the total available grade will accrue for each 24-hour period that an
assessment item is submitted late. Therefore, an assessment item worth 20 marks will have
1 marks deducted for every 24-hour period and at the end of 20 days will receive 0 marks.
Students who fail to submit following the guidelines in this Unit Information Guide will be
deemed to have not submitted the assessment item and the above penalty will be applied
until the specified submission guidelines are followed.
Marks and Feedback
All assessment materials submitted during the semester will normally be marked and
returned within two weeks of the required date of submission (provided that the assessment
materials have been submitted by the due date).
Marks will be made available to each student via the MySCU Grade book.
