There have been three very important changes to UTAS assessments in Semester One 2020:
- The University will not record fail grades on student transcripts for Semester 1, 2020 with the exception of those imposed as a result of a breach of academic integrity. This also means that fail grades will not have an impact on your grade point average.
- Certificates and extensions are not required for late submissions of assessments of up to five working days.
- All face-to-face exams will be replaced by alternative assessment tasks or online exams.
As the COVID-19 situation develops, ensure you keep up to date with the latest State and National advice, travel restrictions and prohibitions, and that you access the support you need: COVID-19 Student Support page.
All students are welcome to chat with the UTAS Personal Counsellors. This is a free and confidential service, and is available over the phone. More information about this can be found here. The Counselling Team have also put together an online resource that is designed to look after student health and wellbeing during this period of self-isolation.
The TUU offers financial support to students experiencing unexpected financial difficulties. This includes Financial Counselling and the Safety Net Grant Scheme. Please contact the Student Advocate if you are experiencing hardship and need to discuss your options for support. Further information is available for both Domestic Students and International Students.
UTAS always welcomes student feedback, and now so more than ever. If you have any feedback on the transition from on-campus to online study, please let us know by using the We're Listening page. Please also use this page to provide any other general feedback you may have about UTAS.
