Assignment drop off and pick up - Suspended for semester 1


Coversheets are used by the Student Resource Centre to scan, track and process assignments. You also need to date and sign every coversheet.

  • Always use a coversheet.
  • These must be generated on Canvas.
  • Each coversheet contains a personalised QR-Code with your information, unique to that assignment. Your QR-Code must be complete, machine readable, not resized and not corrupted.

Note that assignments without a coversheet cannot and will not be recorded. Assignments with an outdated, non-Canvas coversheet also cannot be recorded. In addition, you may be penalised for failing to sign and date the declaration.

If there is no coversheet available, inform your lecturer and ask him/her to activate this feature on Canvas.

Drop off - Suspended for semester 1

Assignments are to be submitted into the wall-mounted drop boxes at the Science Resource Centre before the deadline given in your course outline.

This includes:

  • Assignments for all levels
  • Early assignments
  • Late assignments (unless other instructions have been specified for your course)
  • Assignments with extensions/doctor’s notes.

Collection - Suspended for semester 1

Once you have been advised that you can collect your marked assignment from the Student Resource Centre:

  • Pick up from the Assignment Collection Desk
  • Collect between 10am–2pm, Monday-Friday
  • Show your student ID
  • You cannot collect an assignment on the behalf of someone else
  • Collect within 10 working days

Previous assignments will be archived and destroyed at the end of each semester. If your assignment has been archived and you wish to collect it, contact your lecturer/course coordinator and explain why you did not pick it up within 10 working days. They will then need to come and collect the assignment on your behalf.
