Change of SAC extensions policy
This is a petition to get the coursework extension policy changed for the University of Kent Anthropology and Conservation department. SAC's new policy for this year is that all concessions form requests for coursework extensions 'must be submitted to SAC Student Support AT LEAST 5 working days (Monday-Friday 9am-5pm) BEFORE the deadline'. This petition is trying to change that policy. The Annex 9: Concessions Applications and Appeals against Recommendations of Boards of Examiners, states that the policy on concessions is, 'Concessions applications should be submitted WITHIN five days of the event to which the concessions application pertains'. Other departments such as SECL, have a policy that states, 'Extension requests must be submitted at the earliest opportunity and NO LATER than five working days AFTER the deadline to which they relate.' The SAC policy therefore puts its students at a direct disadvantage.
