Requesting an Extension

At Outlier, we understand that life can get in the way of your studies, and we don’t want your grades to suffer because of it. Read this article to learn more about exam and assignment extensions!

Exam & Assignment Extensions

You will have the ability to request a 24-hour extension for any exam or writing assignment when less than 3 days (72 hours) remain before the deadline to submit the exam or assignment.

When your exam or assignment deadline is closing within 3 days, the ability to request an extension becomes available on the course homepage and student dashboard.


Click on “Extend Deadline”, and you will then be directed to the extension request page, where you are asked to complete a short form.

After submitting the form, you will see a message on the top right of the page that mentions the course name, the specific assessment title, and the updated deadline.


Please note that extensions beyond 24 hours are not routinely granted and may require documentation. You should contact our Student Success team as soon as possible if you are experiencing circumstances that will impact your ability to complete your coursework on time.

Course Extensions

Generally, it is not possible to extend the end date of your course. If you are experiencing an extenuating circumstance that impacts your ability to finish your course on time, please reach out to the Student Success team as soon as possible for support.
