Students will only be allowed one 20
percentage point penalty per course, whether it
is the result of an unexcused absence or a late submission.
Late Assignment Submission:
The instructor will impose penalties for late work. Five percent
will be deducted from
the final grade of the assignment for each day the work is late
. Work is considered
“late” if it is received after the scheduled due date and time. Any late work must be
submitted no later than 48 hours after the due date in order to receive a grade,
otherwise you will receive a zero.
If you become ill, have an accident, or a family emergency
occurs and you do not believe you can complete an assignment on time, you
should phone or email the instructor immediately - BEFORE the due date and
time if possible. The instructor may postpone the deadline without penalty,
depending on the circumstances. Documentation will be required.
No late work is accepted for Module 5, as the course closes on the
final Saturday night of the course.
No late discussion postings will be accepted for grading. If you are
late with your original post you may still get partial credit for responding to peers so

of Nursing and Health Innovation Undergraduate Student Handbook
In an attempt to resolve a complaint, the student must first make a serious effort to resolve

the primary responsibility for assigning grades.
Appeals of the official grade assigned to a
student for a course will not, therefore, be considered at levels above the faculty unless a
student offers evidence of:
Differential treatment – examples might be providing benefits such as extra
time for assignments to some but not all students in the class; excluding some
students from attendance or other course requirements, OR
Procedural irregularities – examples might be adding a new requirement that
was not listed in the class syllabus; using criteria for grades not made
available to the student ahead of time.
