Due Dates for Coursework

It is expected that instructors will require all course assignments, other than term papers and term projects, to be submitted at the latest by the last day of reading period. Term papers and term projects are to be submitted at the latest by the last day of the final examination period. (For the dates of reading period and final examination period, consult the Yale College Calendar with Pertinent Deadlines in the YCPS.) Instructors do not have the authority to give permission for these deadlines to be extended beyond the end of the term; only the residential college dean has this authority (see Work Incomplete at the End of Term under Completion of Course Work in the Academic Regulations in the YCPS). Even if an extended deadline should be announced by the instructor, a grade reflecting work submitted after the end of the term cannot be accepted unless a Temporary Incomplete was authorized by the student’s residential college dean.
