Submitting New Applications

In the mitigating circumstances application, students are given an overview of the request process and the potential outcomes.

From here, students search for their desired module and upcoming assessment that they wish to defer. They will also have to select the reason for the request from a pre-populated list of valid reasons and produce a wider explanation of the request. Supporting documentation can also be provided by attaching it to the application.

Before the student submits the request, they will be directed to a summary page. Here they will have to make a declaration that the information they have provided is correct.

Mitigating circumstances staff log into SEAtS web app and navigate to the Approvals tab. Here they will see student requests that are relevant to them waiting for review.

From there, staff can change the status of student requests to pre-determined stages along with adding comments for the student. They will also be able to send direct emails to the student if needed. If there are other staff or faculty that need to be made aware of the special considerations request, admin users can assign non-admin users with temporary access with the click of a button.
