To reduce the impact of COVID-19 on your academic results, a variety of changes have been introduced.
Students are impacted in a variety of ways by COVID-19 and the transition to new ways of learning and assessment. Changes to reduce the impact include:
Requests for extensions for assessment due dates are possible without a medical or counselling certificate. To request an extension for an assessment please contact your Subject Coordinator and provide information for consideration. You may complete a Notification of Extenuating Circumstances (NEC) form in replacement of medical or counselling certification, and attach as evidence. More information and a link to the form is available online and via the JCU App.
For Teaching Period 1, 2020 there is a waiver of WF, U and N results on academic records, these will be changed to WD (withdrawal without academic penalty) if you have completed at least 80 per cent of subject assessments.
If your studies have been impacted by COVID-19, you are eligible for late withdrawal without academic penalty. This means that late withdrawal from subjects will be represented as a WD (withdrawn) result instead of a WF (withdrawn fail) result on your academic record
If your studies have been impacted by COVID-19 and you are not able to secure a doctor’s certificate or other evidence, you can self-declare via this form as your supporting documentation. The form can be used for missed compulsory classes, assessment extensions, special consideration, deferred exams, and withdrawal from subjects.
Face-to-face examinations have been replaced with an online equivalent or an alternative assessment task. You will receive an exam schedule on 8 May 2020 for examination period 6 to 19 June 2020. Information about exam types will be provided ahead of scheduled exams to assist you in preparing for online exams.
