English as a Second Language (ESL) Extension Policy

The following guidelines apply to Pacific School of Religion courses and assume that the student is responsible for explicitly requesting to the instructor the extra time as described below.

  • PSR faculty are encouraged to consider extending for one week the deadline for term papers submitted by ESL students, if the student states that this extended time is for the purpose of securing the assistance of the International Student Tutors or other such editorial assistance.
  • PSR faculty are encouraged to consider permitting ESL international students 50% more time to complete written examinations.

This policy pertains to PSR courses only and may not necessarily apply to non-PSR courses.
