Late Submission of Course Work Policy

All course work (including, but not limited to: assignments, labs, quizzes, exams, and final projects) must be submitted no later than the due date unless prior arrangements are made with the mentor and a new due date is established*. If a student submits an assignment after the due date without having made arrangements with the mentor, a minimum of 5 points, (based on an assignment grading scale of 100 points), will be deducted for each week, or part thereof, that the assignment is late.

Students with documented evidence of an emergency which prevented prior communication with the mentor may present documentation to the mentor for consideration.

In order to receive credit for the discussion forum assignments, the student must actively participate during the assigned discussion period.

Course work will not be accepted after the last day of the term unless arranged as part of a Course Extension.

This policy applies to undergraduate and graduate students.

*Active duty military students in receipt of Temporary Additional Duty orders (TDY) may be exempted from point deductions if their orders prescribe a return-to-class date that allows for sufficient time to complete the remaining course requirements, which is generally defined as allowing the student to miss no more than 1/3 of the total semester.

Military students with TDY orders shall follow the procedures, found on the Office of Military and Veterans Education website to establish new due dates without penalty for written assignments and discussion boards.
