Missed assignments

If you think you will not be able to submit your assignment in time (because of illness or bereavement) you must contact your instructor in advance and NOT on the due date for the assignment. If the assignment is not received within 15 minutes by the specified deadline it will be counted as missed and will not be graded (you will receive 0% for that assignment). If you know you cannot meet the assigned deadline for any reason, contact your instructor as soon as possible to make alternate arrangements.
