UCD has a policy for Extenuating Circumstances that allows us to consider circumstances that had a serious effect on your ability to engage with your modules. Grounds for consideration must be serious, beyond your control and you must provide suitable supporting evidence. Not every circumstance is regarded as extenuating and you will find guidance in the policy document on the UCD website. If you experience difficulties that have a negative impact on your academic performance, you can seek to have these extenuating circumstances taken into consideration before confirming your grades. You will complete the Extenuating Circumstances Form on-line via SISWeb and submit the supporting documentation to the College Office by the relevant deadlines. Applications are considered only in relation to the trimester in which they are made. Late applications will be considered only in exceptional circumstances.
