Assignment Assistance

For file submission assignments, it is important to use Microsoft Word or a similar program to complete and save your work.

Assignments are usually available for a specific period, with a designated deadline for submission. It is up to the instructor to decide whether late submissions will be accepted. If you miss the deadline, it is essential to contact your instructor promptly to discuss the possibility of an extension.

While some assignments may allow unlimited editing after the initial submission, this is uncommon. In most cases, assignments can only be edited until the posted due date
