Late Penalty and Special Consideration (Extension requests)
All extension requests must go through Special Consideration.
Please note that the University and the Faculty of Arts have launched a new assessment policy effective as of 1 July 2021. This new policy particularly affects LATE SUBMISSION OF ASSIGNMENTS.
The Faculty policy in relation to late assessment submissions is as follows:
Unless a Special Consideration request has been submitted and approved, (a) a penalty for lateness will apply – 10 marks out of 100 credit will be deducted per day for assignments submitted after the due date – and (b) no assignment will be accepted seven days (incl. weekends) after the original submission deadline. No late submissions will be accepted for timed assessments – e.g. quizzes, online tests, etc.
To be very clear:
- Unless you have applied for special consideration and had your application approved, for each day your assignment is late, 10 marks will be deducted. For example, if you submit your assignment 7 days late, 70 marks will be deducted, which means you will fail that assignment.
- If your assignment is more than 7 days late (including weekends), you will get 0 for your assignment.
These are serious penalties that will substantially alter your final grade and even determine whether you pass or fail this unit. Please make every effort to submit your assignment by the due date.
If you find you cannot submit your assignment on time, please apply for Special Consideration through AskMQ. Make sure you read Macquarie University's policy regarding Special Consideration requests before you apply: https://students.mq.edu.au/study/assessment-exams/special-consideration
Please note: Extensions and late penalties will be applied per 24hour period. I.e. If the original deadline was Monday 5pm and the student received 2 days extension, the assessment will then be due on Wednesday 5pm.
Students with a pre-existing disability/health condition or prolonged adverse circumstances may be eligible for ongoing assistance and support. Such support is governed by other policies and may be sought and coordinated through Campus Wellbeing and Support Services.
MMCC3150 is a PACE unit, which is intended to provide students with hands-on experience as part of their undergraduate studies. In order to fulfil the requirements of this unit, students must undertake a 45hour (minimum) internship/PACE activity working under supervision. All placements must be approved by the University before students can proceed. Placements must be completed within semester dates (unless Early Commencement has been approved).
Students must contact the Arts PACE Office prior to the start of session to begin organising their placement. Students have two options in this unit. They may nominate their own internship to the unit staff for approval, or they can be allocated a university placement based on their preferences. Please see the unit's PACEWISE page for due dates for these processes. Please note that these due dates are prior to the start of session, and so late enrolments are very difficult to accommodate.
Once students have started their approved placement, they must keep a record of their hours using the online log sheet system (link provided on iLearn). At the end of their placement, and once they have completed a minimum of 45hours, students need to send their log sheet to their supervisor to sign off on. This must be done before the log sheet due date in Week 14 (further details on iLearn).
