University of Technology Sydney ("UTS") - Special Consideration


Special consideration is intended to provide equitable academic treatment for students whose performance in an assessment task is affected by illness, misadventure or work-related circumstances.

You should only apply for special consideration when your performance in an assessment item or examination has been affected by extenuating or special circumstances beyond your control.

Students at UTS apply for special consideration online by completing the Online Special Consideration Form and saving the application.

Students can download a comprehensive guide to lodging an online special consideration application form

The Professional Authority form can be printed or downloaded from within the Online Special Consideration Form application and shared with the doctor. This can then be attached to your online application once signed by the doctor.
