Failed Assessments or Subjects
Students are not required to pass every item of assessment for a course, but must achieve a cumulative mark of at least 50% overall to pass. Students who fail to achieve 50% overall in a unit receive a permanent ‘Fail’ on their transcript.
Where a student receives a ‘Fail’ grade for completed assessment in 100 level subjects, and the lecturer believes that the student has made a genuine effort to satisfy the assessment requirements, the lecturer may decide to ask the student to re-submit that assessment. If this occurs, the student will be given an ‘In Progress’ grade, and has one-month following the notification of the grade to re-submit the assessment. If the re-submitted assessment is deemed satisfactory, the ‘Incomplete’ grade will be replaced by a maximum 50% mark. In the event of the assessment not being re-submitted within one month, the student will receive a fail grade. Students will only be allowed to re-submit one piece of assessment per subject area, and further unsatisfactory assessments will result in a ‘Fail’ grade.
If a student wishes to re-sit the subject, they will be required to pay full-fees, attend all classes and re-submit all assessment work. This may only occur once. If a student wishes to re-sit a unit a third time, they must apply to the Program Director in writing, demonstrating either extenuating personal circumstances or failure of due process, under the conditions of the College’s Appeal regulations
