Arriving late for the start of your course is only allowed under extenuating circumstances. If you can't make your start date, you need to get approval first.

Visit our Late Arrival/Registration Student Request page and click 'New or Continuing Student' to get the form you need.

Once you've completed the form and submitted it, we'll consider your request. We'll then send you an email confirming whether we've granted your request. If we reject it, we'll explain why.
