School of Education – Essential Forms, Policies and Processes

Extensions, Appeals and Policy


All assessment extensions are governed by the guidelines contained in the Curtin University Student Assessment and Progression policy (see policy document below). If an extension to an assessment due date is needed, this can only be provided through a formal Assessment Extension request.

Assessment extensions can be submitted using the online form available here. Please note that the form will be available from Monday 5 August 2019.

You will be notified of the outcome of your application via the Official Communications Channel (OCC) within five working days. The OCC in OASIS is separate from your student email, please see the OASIS help pages for information on using the Official Communications Channel (OCC).


If you believe that the assessment of your work has not been accurate or fair, you must engage in dialogue with your tutor and/or Unit Co-ordinator in the first instance. Formal appeals against assessment should only be lodged if attempts to resolve the situation are not successful. The Expression of Concern form below must be used to manage the initial query.

Please complete the form below and email along with any supporting evidence to your Tutor or Unit coordinator
