Late Stuff Policy
Due dates have been established to help you stay on track and discourage procrastination. But "life happens". Maybe you are sick, have a dentist appointment, or need a mental health day. The reason does not matter. I have a three-day grace period on everything EXCEPT reflection posts (summer students only). You will "pay" me 5% for each day you are late, regardless of the reason. After the grace period ends, so does your opportunity to submit.
Want to erase late fees? Earn bonus points and you can redeem them at the end of the semester for rewards - one of which is a late fee eraser! Note that the late fees on all segment quizzes can be erased with the "purchase" of just one late fee eraser. Sweet!
What if I need more time beyond the grace period?
If you miss a deadline because of an unforeseen, unavoidable, and justifiable reason, you may contact me (via email or a direct message in Canvas) to request an extension. You will need to tell me which graded activity was or will be missed and why. Documentation may be required. Extension approval is not guaranteed. IMPORTANT: requests for an extension must be made a soon as possible. Waiting too late might result in a request denial. Also, you will still incur late fees - but these will be capped at 15%. Remember, you can always erase them later using bonus points.
