Support Request Timelines (Recommended)

The deadlines provided below are recommended only but we advise that you follow them as closely as possible. You are welcome to make these requests as soon as possible, and even before these deadlines if possible. We do understand that it is not always possible to make requests within these deadlines and we will always do the best we can to make these arrangements. However, once these deadlines pass we cannot guarantee that the requested accommodations can be arranged in time.

The maximum extension time granted is one week beyond the original deadline, unless there are extreme extenuating circumstances.
