This is the Late Assignment Submissions Policy as of SUMMER QUARTER 2015:


Students may submit assigned work up to seven (7) days after the stated deadline. A 10% grade penalty is assessed for work up to twenty-four hours late; an additional 10% penalty is assessed for each additional day the work is late. In some cases (such as late discussion postings) students may be asked to complete an alternate assignment for equivalent point value, minus any applicable penalty. 

Online discussions conclude at the end of the current week/module. Discussion posts made after the end of the current week/module will not be accepted.  

Instructors may waive the late penalty or timeframe in the case of extenuating circumstances as determined by the faculty.

In some cases, certain activities, such as labs and exams, must be completed at the designated time and therefore cannot be made up. The instructor should apprise students beforehand of any such activities.

In no circumstances may students submit work after the last day of the academic term unless an incomplete grade has been requested and granted beforehand.
