 Project Submission Deadline Rules from the Dean’s Office
Posted Aug 22, 2019 2:39 PM
All Projects Have Due Dates and Require Timely Submission!
As of Fall 2019 all Projects have firm deadlines. Please note the firm DUE DATES for
assignment submissions that appear in the Class and Assignment Schedule and in the online
Class Calendar. You are required to meet these deadlines throughout the course.
You will still have opportunities to improve your work through resubmissions. These
opportunities are based on you making your initial submission by the firm due date. If you are
required or eligible to resubmit your work based on the faculty feedback you received, you must
do so within 2 weeks of the original due date of the assignment.
The firm DUE DATES and resubmission “windows” have been put in place because they
realistically reflect the conditions you will encounter in your professional life. Meeting
deadlines and working within planned timelines are required competencies in the real-world.
We have observed that missing project deadlines and letting work “pile up”, especially at the end
of a course, negatively impacts your success. By meeting DUE DATES and resubmitting work
within identified timeframes, you are demonstrating both academic and professional
The keys to course success are in reading the syllabus, routinely talking with your faculty about
your work, and planning ahead so that you meet class DUE DATES and resubmission
Should you have questions or concerns, please contact your faculty immediately. Should
unplanned events arise as you progress through the course, proactively reach out to your
professor. Best wishes on your continued success.
