The College mitigation procedures aim to provide support to students who are experiencing unexpected personal circumstances e.g. illness, family crisis, bereavement.  

SSIS College operates two types of mitigation: 

  • Extension:  An extension to a coursework item is a period of extra time which you may apply for to complete an assessment to your best standard. 
  • Deferral:   To defer an assessment means to apply to delay taking the assessment until a later assessment period.
