Extensions / Deferment
Students can obtain extensions on various assessment submissions for their course/s up until the maximum allocated time issued for the completion of their respective course. No additional time can be awarded once the stated completion date has expired. Please refer to our website for individual course durations and/or details of time allocated to complete your course and graduation.
Any assessment item that needs to be re-submitted will incur a $20.00 resubmission fee. Resubmissions will be limited to three times, after which the student will be required to re-enrol and pay the full respective course/module fee. For courses that require the submission of hard copy assessments (check respective course details to see if this applies to your course) students must provide an A4 pre-paid self-addressed return envelope. (Please ensure you provide adequate postage on your return envelope i.e. whatever the postage fee is to post your assessment to AC, is the same amount you need to put on your return envelope).
You may request a Not Yet Competent (NYC) or Not Yet Achieved (NYA) assessment result to be reviewed for up to 21 days from when the result is issued. Requests for a review of an assessment item must be made in writing to the AC Assessment Officer: firstname.lastname@example.org.
All AC courses have specific maximum completion times (Please refer to our website for individual course durations and/or for details of time allocated to complete your course and graduate). This time period includes any workplace training and assessments/work-placement, exams online or any other assessment items. All students will be issued with completion dates for their course or modules to ensure they meet the time frame above. AC reserves the right to change course materials, change/modify assessment items or to cancel courses if necessary. In the event of a course or module being cancelled every effort will be made to avoid inconvenience by transitioning students to other courses or modules. Students who enroll and complete a module at a time (pay as you learn) that go across a calendar year will be subject to any price increase for the New Year, i.e. subjects may not have the same fee from year to year. Upon enrolment students are confirming they have read the course information and have received the student handbook, therefore the student is aware of the requirements and structure of the course.
