Penalties for Late Submission

Senate of June 11 2008 approved the recommendation of the University Penalties Working Group to reduce the time limit for work submitted late in the absence of special circumstances from 10 to 5 working days. This revision is in response to concerns expressed by departments that the original policy for penalties for the late submission of assessed work might be impeding departments in providing timely feedback to students
on their work.
