This has gotten a little out of hand so I'm making a formal post and statement about my policy for accepting assignments.
Turning in Assignments
YOU are responsible for knowing when assignments are due-- "I misread the assignment," "I didn't know," and any derivation of such excuses are NOT sufficient explanations for why you do not have your assignment in on time.
If you are sick on the date an assignment is due, you are still responsible for getting it on time and NOT by emailing it to me. It is your responsibility to find a classmates to print it out and turn it in for you.
Unless explicitly noted, I DO NOT accept emailed assignments for ANY reason. When you email me your paper, you are basically asking me to print out, staple, and turn in your assignment! If you can't be bothered to print out your assignment, why should I?
If your assignment is more than 1 page, YOU are responsible for stapling it (why would you ever expect me to staple it for you?!). Do not use paperclips, folded corners, etc. If you turn in an assignment that is made up of loose pages, I may lose a page or two!
Assignments should also have appropriate titles!
- Turning an assignment in on time
- For assignments collected in class: assignments are due at the beginning of class. If you walk in 10 minutes late after I've already collected the assignment, your assignment is LATE; the syllabus clearly notes that I do NOT accept late assignments for ANY reason.
- For assignments submitted on Google Docs or online: if you're turning in an assignment electronically, I usually specify a time when they are due, anything later than that time is considered late.
- ALL assignments at the college level should be typed. Unless explicitly stated by the instructor, handwritten assignments are NOT accepted; in other words, if you're not sure, type it up!
- ALL assignments should have a single-spaced header made up of the following:
- FirstName LastName
- Course Name
- Assignment Name
- Due Date
