Late Work and Make-up Work Policy
Late assignments will not be accepted or graded for credit unless there are extenuating
circumstances beyond your control such as illness that prevented you from completing
your work during the week. Waiting to do your work until the day before, or the day the
assignment is due is not an excuse. Documentation of illness or hospitalization may be
required at the discretion of the instructor. Keep the lines of communication open with
me if you experience unanticipated problems. When I know what is happening with
you, I can better address your situation and help you make some decisions about your
course work.
