Faculty: Extend Assignment Due Date

Due date overrides can quickly be entered for either individual students or groups who need more time to complete an assignment. Open the assignment link and click on View all submissions (even if there haven't been any submissions yet!). Then follow these simple steps:

  1. Check the box associated with the person who needs the extension.
  2. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and select Grant extension from the With selected... pull-down menu.
  3. Click on Go. Confirm your desire to grant an extension to the selected user(s).
  4. Enter the date and time of the extension and Save changes. The extension information will be displayed with the student's name (both in your view and on the student's page).

To extend a deadline for a group, select the group from the View all submissions page, then click on the Select box to the left of the column headings to select all of the members of the group, then follow steps 2-4.
