06. Late Work Policy

All assignments must be submitted on time. There are no exceptions.


Hard-copy/physical assignments are always due at the start of class
I do not accept late assignments, so you cannot hand in the assignment after class has started (even just a minute or two!), or at the end of class.  If you will not be able to make it to class on the day a hard-copy/physical assignment is due, send it to class with a friend/sibling/relative/etc or share it online with me so I can see proof that the assignment was completed by the deadline. You are responsible for the information missed by an absence.

Online assignments are always due 1 hour before the start of class.
Computer/technical difficulties are not an excuse for not getting your work in on time. Plan for websites to go down; plan for your email to stop working; plan for an internet outage. Extreme circumstances need to be reported to me ASAP.


Backing Up Your Work: You will be putting a lot of time and effort into your projects. As such, you are expected to back up your work regularly in order to prevent data loss from failed media or hard drives. You should keep at least two copies of your work on different drives at all times. “My hard drive ate it” is not an acceptable reason for incomplete assignments. When working on a project, save consistently. The universal keyboard shortcut for this on Mac is command-s, and on a PC ctrl+s. Make a habit of it. When you’re finished working for the day, immediately create a backup of your work.
