Submitting Assignment - Late Submission Time Remaining

When you are late with your assignment, two scenarios can happen:

  1. Uploading is closed completely. If this is the case, contact your professor to find out another way of turning in the assignment.
  2. Uploading is still there. You can upload a file/files in a regular way, but the professor can see that the assignment is late; therefore, she/he may choose not to grade it. Once you upload a late assignment the box in the Time remaining section of the Submission status window, it will turn red stating how long the assignment is overdue by.
