T3 Special consideration requirements

Applications for Special Consideration should be submitted via the online system, you may be required to provide documentary evidence to support your application, as outlined on the Special Consideration page (i.e. medical certificate, IT Help ticket etc.). Unit teams will be as accommodating as they can; their goal is to enable all students to meet assessment requirements in units. Don’t forget late submissions can affect follow-on tasks, delay feedback and increase time pressure later.

Temporary grading schema – T3 study period

To continue to ensure students are not disadvantaged by the ongoing impact of COVID-19 pandemic, the University has approved the implementation and continued use of the temporary COVID grading schema for units undertaken in T3 and associated teaching periods (Intensive, Start Anytime). For more information please visit the Results frequently asked questions.

Deakin offers a range of services, including interest-free loans for study-related expenses, financial counselling, and emergency cards for food and transport costs.

In response to the changing environment due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Deakin has developed a support scheme for students in need.
Support options range from monetary amounts to other relevant support mechanisms, such as fee extensions. To find out more about the support scheme, eligibility requirements and to apply, visit the appropriate link below.
