Student Code of Conduct
Macquarie University students have a responsibility to be familiar with the Student Code of Conduct: https://students.mq.edu.au/study/getting-started/student-conduct
Results published on platform other than eStudent, (eg. iLearn, Coursera etc.) or released directly by your Unit Convenor, are not confirmed as they are subject to final approval by the University. Once approved, final results will be sent to your student email address and will be made available in eStudent. For more information visit ask.mq.edu.au or if you are a Global MBA student contact firstname.lastname@example.org
All assessment tasks must be attempted in order to pass the unit.
Requesting an extension to assignment due date
Extensions are only given in special circumstances, by the unit coordinator or the lecturer, either by email before the due date, or by completing a Disruption to Studies request. For more information on Disruption to Studies, see http://www.mq.edu.au/policy/docs/disruption_studies/policy.html
Late submission of assignments
If assignments are submitted after the due date without an approved extension, they are deemed late. Late submissions will receive a 5% per day penalty and will not be marked if more than 2 weeks late.
All assignments submitted after the deadline, regardless of the reason, will be marked and returned at a date determined by the unit convenor. Extensions cannot continue beyond the start of the following semester, and students should be aware that long extensions may impact graduation dates.
