How can I request an extension to a submission deadline (RESD)?
If you need a short extension of up to 10 working days (up to 20 working days for longer projects), you need to complete a Request to extend a submission deadline (RESD) via My Student Record. Please watch the guidance video to ensure that you understand how to submit a request and what documents you need to upload with the request.
An extension should be requested when unexpected and unanticipated difficulties adversely impact on your studies and your ability to submit coursework by the deadline date.
You must submit a RESD at least 24 hours ahead of your deadline via My Student Record (MSR), and upload any uncompleted work. Please continue to work on your assignment in case your request is not accepted and you need to submit your work by the original deadline.
You will receive an email confirming the outcome of your request within 48 hours and MSR will also be updated
If you cannot meet the extended deadline speak to your faculty Student Services team to consider whether or not you need to submit a Request to repeat an assessment attempt (RRAA). Further information is available within the Extenuating Circumstances Policy.
