Mitigating Circumstances Form

Student Wellbeing, Counselling and Disabilities Team Policy on provision of evidence for Mitigating Circumstances Forms (MCF).

Under certain circumstances, your counsellor/therapist may be able to provide evidence in support of a Mitigating Circumstances Form.

Typically your counsellor/therapist will agree to do this if they have been working with you over a period of time and feel able to confirm that your personal circumstances may have had a significant impact on your academic performance.

Evidence in support of MCF will only be provided at your request and with explicit consent. If you require assistance completing the MCF, please consult a member of academic staff or GCU London professional services by emailing Nasiba Zafar at or Scarlett Hooper at

You can make a mitigating circumstances application on this page.
