Late Work Policy
* Points will be deducted from late work just as it would be for on-time work.
- Ex: If a student turns in a paper and receives 10 points off for missing information and it is on-time, they would receive a grade of a 90. If another student turns in a paper 3 days late and is missing the same information, they would receive a grade of a 60 (70 minus 10 pts).
