Late Grading Policy

ACHS has adopted a late grading policy that is used for all courses across the institution. 

All required assessments have due dates (located in the Calendar and in the Course Summary section below). If you will not be able to meet any due date for any reason, contact your professor in advance to make arrangements.

Otherwise, if a student does not submit an assignment by the due date, it automatically is awarded a zero in the grade book. However, students can still turn in assignments after the due date for credit.

Assignments submitted on the following schedule will receive points deductions as described below: 

How Late is the Assignment? Effect on Grade
Assignments submitted within one week of the deadline: 10% deduction from the maximum possible grade.
Assignments submitted one week after the deadline: 20% deduction from the maximum possible grade.

Important Note About Participation Points

If an assessment includes participation points for responding on the discussion board, you must post your meaningful response to another student for the week's discussion by the due date to earn the participation points (all assignments are due at 11:59 Pacific time, regardless of your timezone). If you post your response after the due date, then you will not receive participation points.

Late penalties do not apply to active military students.
