Extenuating Circumstances System Enhancements

Members of the UCD community had expressed the need for a collection of enhancements to the existing Extenuating Circumstances Online System. This was based on the number of local workarounds within the process which was leading to an inconsistent experience for students and creating added complexity for staff. 

Thirteen user-driven enhancements to the Extenuating Circumstances system went live in September 2023. These enhancements have been welcomed by those involved in the Extenuating Circumstances process.
