Submission and Assessment of Late Assignments Policy

1. Every assignment has a due date. Students are expected to submit assignments on or before the assigned due date.

2. Papers handed in after the due date will receive a one-third grade point deduction (i.e., B to B-) for each week (or part thereof) following the due date. This late policy will apply to all assignments for which no application for extension has been made.

3. In the event of extenuating circumstances, a student may request an extension without penalty from the Office of the Registrar. Students must submit to the Office of the Registrar a completed copy of the Request for Extension due to Extreme Circumstances Form explaining the extenuating circumstance prior to the assigned due date. Reasons for which an extension may be granted must be significant, unusual or unpredictable circumstances.

  • Examples of acceptable reasons include: treatment by a physician, personal, vocational or family crisis.
  • Examples of unacceptable reasons include: broken printer or computer virus, behind on other assignments, cannot get to a library or buy a book, general busyness at work or ministry.
