Students are expected to complete their assessment tasks by due dates which are outlined in the Course Outline. Students whose disability, mental health or medical condition means that they will take longer to complete an assessment task will need to request an extension for that task.
Extensions can be helpful, but sometimes can contribute to a build-up of workload pressure. It may be helpful to discuss a study plan with an Access and Inclusion Adviser or Program Director.
Course Coordinators are responsible for providing students with ' reasonable adjustments ', which can include extensions, and decide whether students are eligible for an extension on this basis. It is important for students to check the Course Outline for details about extension procedures as they vary between courses. Requests are made through the LearnOnline Course Website.
Applications for extensions must be lodged with the Course Coordinator before the due date for the assignment and supported by documentary evidence ( Assessment Policies and Procedures Section 3) , which may be an Access Plan .
Students are required to:
- Apply for any extensions through the Course Website before the due date
- State clearly their reasons for the request
- Provide supporting evidence e.g. Access Plan, medical certificate
- Explain the reason for requesting an extension and what supporting documentation can be provided
- Request an extension until a date which is realistic (e.g. you will have enough time to complete the assessment task) and reasonable (e.g. normally within days rather than weeks).

With deadlines looming, students have been struggling to submit their work on the "mymodules 2022 portal" after the university implemented a new learning management system to replace the old, glitchy one.
However, this led to inaccessible study material, unstable connectivity and missed deadlines.
The institution's spokesperson Victor Dlamini has since apologised to staff and students for the inconvenience.

UNISA Assignment Due Dates Extended 2022 – Check Full Details Here
The University of South Africa (UNISA) has recently announced that they intend to implement a new learning management system in an effort to resolve existing issues with the old system.
Thus, the university will be extending assignment due dates when the system is fully operational. UNISA further states that in doing so, they have taken the following considerations into account:
- UNISA has acknowledged that students may not have had access to their study material leading up to their assignment submission;
- Some students do not have access to their module sites due to late registration;
- Certain assignments are fully online, and students were not able to complete their assignments offline; and
- Some students were not able to submit complete responses as their connectivity was interrupted.
To guarantee that the academic assessment plan is implemented as intended, the due dates for all Semester 1 assignments will be extended in a staggered manner.
In addition to this, UNISA has also stated that all other matters will be attended to, while their project team is still working to restore myModules 2022 sites back to functionality.
Extended assignment submission deadlines will be communicated to students through their myModules 2022 sites, once the system is fully operational.
