Extensions are permitted only in exceptional circumstances and at the discretion of the module coordinator. Extensions must be applied for in advance of a submission date using the appropriate form. Request forms should be fully completed and returned to the School office for the attention of the module coordinator. Forms for late submissions can be obtained outside Room E001 or downloaded through the link above.
This is not advised as Schools will have established a schedule of deadlines to ensure your workload is spread appropriately. Late submissions will generally only be accepted when it has been requested in advance and if there are genuine supporting reasons. Some modules may not allow it, if subsequent work depends on an assignment being completed by a particular deadline. The module coordinator will inform students via course materials if this is the case. For those assignments where no specific rule has been established, and a late submission has been requested and approved, the general University penalties will apply.

Additional helpful information on plagiarism and how to avoid it is available in the Student Code and UCD Library Guide to Avoiding Plagiarism.
