The following faculties have some additional information on their websites relating to assignment submission.

Due dates

The due date of the assignment is the last day on which your assignment must reach your Faculty or submitted on CloudDeakin.

Failure to comply with this requirement may affect the assessment process and your final result for the unit. Late submission may incur a penalty in assessment.


If circumstances beyond your control will prevent you from attending a test, placement, practicum or similar, or from submitting an assignment by the due date, you should speak to your Unit Chair as soon as you become aware of the problem. Your Unit Chair may allow you to do the task at another time or may give you an extension of up to two weeks.

Assignment Extensions are normally only approved when students apply before the due date. You will need to supply supporting documentation about the difficulties you are facing and the Unit Chair may ask to see the work you have completed so far.

Note that work that is submitted late without an approved extension will be subject to a marking penalty, or may not be marked at all.

The Unit Chair may advise you to apply for special consideration where

  • you were unable to apply for an extension before the due date or
  • rescheduling is impractical or
  • you have requested more than two weeks' extension.

For further information, check your unit guide. 

Word Count

Check your Unit Guide for word limits and assignment requirements. Speak to your Unit Chair if you need to extend your word count.
