Setting a Time for when Assignments are Due

By default, the time that assignments are due is 12am PT. Any outstanding assignments after this time will be marked late in the Gradebook.

You can change this deadline on the due dates page. Once a Due Time is set, assignments in that section will need to be turned in before this deadline or else be marked as late.

(Note: a section's timezone can be adjusted on the section's settings page)

Students Viewing Due Dates

Students can view the Due Dates that you’ve assigned them by selecting Due Dates from the left-hand sidebar. This page shows the Due Dates for their assigned Activities as well as a status icon.

Students can also view Due Dates from the Assignment tab in their editor. The notification will be red if the student's assignment is past due.

Clicking "Due Dates" on the lefthand navigation bar, and then clicking on an assignment to open it and see date due in the right hand editor
