The EMS has hard and soft deadlines for coursework. Use of a hard or soft deadline is the professor's choice.
If you see a padlock icon for your Assignment, Discussion or Quiz in your coursework list it means that the item has a hard deadline.
The EMS does not accept late coursework when there is a hard deadline, but your professor has the ability to extend the due date for you if s/he chooses. Contact your professor if you need more time.
If your professor wants to extend a due date for you and is unable to do so, your professor needs to submit a ticket to request help. Tech Support does not extend due dates based on student requests.
Note: When an Assignment has a hard deadline, if you leave your work in draft status it will be automatically submitted when the deadline passes.
If you do NOT see a padlock icon for your Assignment, Discussion or Quiz in your coursework list, it means that the item has a soft deadline. The EMS will accept late coursework for items with soft deadlines. Your professor will be able to see when an item has been submitted late and will be able to tell how late it was submitted.
