All assessments must be completed to pass the course. Late assessments are penalized at the following rates: 1-6 days, 10%; 7-13 days, 20%; 14-20 days, 30%.
It is not necessary to request an extension for an overdue assessment.
If you experience illness or misadventure you may apply to have the late penalty waived. Documentation such as a medical certificate or letter from a treating professional are usually required. The application form to waive late penalties can be downloaded HERE. Upload it with your assignment to turnitin.com. If illness or misadventure has prevented you from submitting your assignment by the due date you may apply to have the late penalties lifted.
Fill out this form and email it, with supporting documentation (e.g. medical certificate, letter from a treating professional), to your course coordinator after submitting your assignment.
Please note: penalties are not waived for poor time management, work commitments, or course workload.
