UNIVERSITY OF TASMANIA RESPONSE TO COVID-19
UTAS has set up a page for all outgoing communication to students throughout this difficult time. The below link that will address most student questions. If there are any questions that are not addressed on this list, please let me know. LINK: https://www.utas.edu.au/alerts/coronavirus-update/students
SEMESTER 1 WITHDRAWLS:
If you have a student that is considering dropping a subject but they’re worried Census Date has passed, UTAS have extended the 'Last Withdrawal without Fail' date to May 31. This means the student can withdraw from a Sem 1 subject before then, will not fail it and can do the subject at a later date at no additional cost.
Without knowing how long the pandemic will continue both here in Australia and throughout the world, I do understand that some students are still seeking opportunities to either continue or commence study. If you do happen to have a student that might be interested in distance learning, please see link to our programs that can be completed online.
