Special Consideration and or Fee Remission

Too unwell to complete assessments?

The University has two separate processes that you can follow when you are in this situation: Special Consideration and Remission of Fees in Special Circumstances.

It is very important that you understand the distinction between the two processes so you can apply for the right one. While these processes are similar, they have different criteria and documentation requirements, as well as outcomes. UMSU believes that the process the University is advising students to follow is actually making things harder and more complicated than it should be.
