I also certify that this assignment has not previously been submitted for assessment in any other course or at any other time in the same course (except as a DRAFT submission) and that I have not copied in part or whole or otherwise plagiarised the work of other students and/or persons.

I have read Charles Darwin University’s Academic and Scientific Misconduct Policy (pol-001) and Student Breach of Academic Integrity Procedures https://www.cdu.edu.au/governance/procedures/pro-092.pdf and understand its implications.

Extensions and Late Lodgements

LATE ASSIGNMENTS WILL GENERALLY NOT BE ACCEPTED UNLESS AN EXTENSION TO THE DUE DATE HAS BEEN GRANTED BY THE HEAD OF SCHOOL.

Exceptions will only be made where assignments are late due to special circumstances that are supported by documentary evidence, and may be subject to a penalty of 5% of assignment marks per day. Partially completed assignments will be accepted with appropriate loss of marks for the incomplete portion.

Should students foresee potential difficulties with submission of assessment items, they should contact the lecturer immediately the difficulties come to notice, to discuss suitable arrangements etc for the submission of those assessment times. An Application for Assignment Extension or Special Consideration should be completed and provided to the Head of School, School of Law and Business.

This application form, explanation and instructions is available on the CMT301 CDU Learnline course site or direct from https://learnline.cdu.edu.au/units/lb_school_templates/deployed/assignment_extension.docx

Please note that it is now Faculty policy that all extension requests must be approved by the Head of School. The lecturer is no longer able to personally approve extension requests.

Leaving a request for an extension, special assessment or special consideration until the last moment, based on grounds that students could have reasonably been able to foresee, may result in the application being rejected.

Ensure that you maintain suitable backup copies of your assignment during preparation, before completion and after lodgement. Loss of data/assignment due to failure to maintain a suitable backup will not constitute grounds for an extension.

  • Instructions for creating PDF documents and/or combining documents of different formats are provided on the Learnline site.
