Late Policy

Success in CSE131 depends critically on keeping up with the assignments. At the same time, we don't want you to be stressed out over deadlines. With this in mind, the the following late policy has been established. Please read it carefully so that you understand your options. Exceptions to this policy will be granted only in the case of a documented extended illness or a documented family emergency.

Always consult the course calendar for quiz dates, exam dates, and lab assignment due dates.

Lab Assignments

Start assignments right away, so you have time to complete them and submit them by the due date. If you wait until the last minute and get stuck, you may have trouble getting help. Also, by finishing labs on time, you will be ready to start each new lab as soon as it is assigned.

The deadline for any assignment may be extended at the discretion of the instructor. The CEC labs may be unavailable for brief periods due to unforseen circumstances. Such outages are to be expected and will not normally result in an extension.

Late coupons: Each student is issued two virtual late coupons for use during this semester. A coupon can be used to extend the time of one lab by exactly one week. No penalty will be assessed for the late lab, but the virtual coupon will be consumed. Using a late coupon is the only mechanism for submitting a lab late, and at most one coupon can be spent on any lab.


Studio attendance is mandatory. An excused absence may be obtained by writing the professor no later than the day of the missed studio and requesting the excused absence. Excused absences are not granted for social events.

You are allowed one unexcused absence in the semester. If you incur more than one unexcused absence, then your studio grade for the entire semester drops to 0.

For any absence, the missed studio must be made up in TA office hours.
