A student who has an excused absence will have the opportunity to earn full credit for any missed assignments that are submitted late. Assignments turned in late due to a documented excused absence will be graded as initially assigned.
Late assignments due to unexcused absence will lose 10 percent/per day the assignment is late. For example, if a student has an unexcused absence for Monday's class and submits the assignment on Tuesday, the highest grade the assignment can receive is a 90. If submitted the following class meeting (Wednesday in this case or 2 days later), the highest grade the assignment can receive is an 81.
In online classes, assignments will be considered late if they are submitted after the weekly deadline for the week that they were assigned. Late assignments in online classes will lose 10 percent each Wednesday, Friday and Sunday past the due date at midnight Eastern Time. For example, if an assignment was due on a Sunday and the student submits the assignment on the following Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, the highest grade the assignment can receive is a 90. If the assignment is submitted on Thursday or Friday, the highest grade the assignment can receive is an 80.
Please see the School of Health Science program handbook for late assignment policies for the following programs: Dental Assisting, Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Medical Radiography, Nursing (diploma, associate’s and bachelor’s degree programs), and Physical Therapist Assistant.
