Policies on Late AssignmentsTimeliness and good time management are critical skills for professionalism and success, both in school and inthe workplace. Should you encounter an unanticipated and uncontrollable life event that may prevent you frommeeting an assignment deadline, you must contact the Instructor immediately to request an extension. Allapprovals will be at the Instructor’s discretion and requests for repeated or longer extensions may not be grantedand/or may require supporting documentation. Late submission of work will adversely affect your grade, accordingto the policy below.

Poor time management, occupational related commitments andtravel, vacations, not reading or following the course information and Syllabus, and failure to obtain theappropriate books, computer equipment, or Internet access are not events that warrant special consideration.Students are expected to have appropriate and reliable technology and Internet access. Students are expected tomanage their coursework despite personal circumstances, and be aware of the drop/withdraw dates for courseswhen life circumstances do not allow for meeting course deadlines.All assignments (discussions, assignments, projects, assessments) submitted late without prior agreement of theInstructor, outside of an emergency absence, or in violation of agreements for late submission, will receive agrade reduction for the assignment. After 5 days, the assignment will not be graded.In accordance with the above policy, the following guidelines are in effect:Discussions:Discussion due dates are specifically defined within the course and may include one or moredeadlines within the given week or module. Discussions rely upon timely presence and interaction of allparticipants in order to function properly. Failure to meet a post deadline without prior approval will result in a10% deduction per day. No credit will be given for any Discussion postings or peer response postings madeafter the discussion has closed (at the end of the week or module). Exceptions for late initial discussionpostings will be made only for those rare situations that legitimately prevented a student from posting on time orwith an approved accommodation from Disability Services. However, late peer response postings will not beaccommodated beyond the discussion deadline for any reason.
