Late Policy
Refer to Pacing Calendar!
Extension Policy
To be considered for an extension, you must have ALL of these criteria as well as an extreme circumstance showing why you were unable to do all of the work in this course:

·         You must have AT LEAST a 50% weighted (final grade) grade in the course.
·         You must have done AT LEAST 3 of your projects. Blank submissions do not count. This means 5 full paragraphs and your sources cited correctly!
·         You must have ALL of your discussions done. You cannot skip those and expect that to count.
·         Consistent weekly progress. Working a week and taking a week off is NOT consistent with being successful! If you simply chose to not start working on this course until a few weeks in, and are struggling to finish, that is not a reason to deserve an extension either as you made that choice.

·         You must have communicated with me throughout the block. If your first attempt at communicating with me is your request for more time, I do not think you will get what you are looking for.

·         You must have attended at least 3 adobe sessions and earned your participation points for 3 weeks of this class.


You have 7 days after the date the project is due on the pacing calendar to turn in a project with no penalty. On day 8, the project is now considered LATE and will be worth half-credit. For example, if you turn Project 1 one week after it is due, you will only get half credit (if you would have scored an 80%, you will receive a 40%).
