Slip Days Policies
Each assignment has a due date, which will be posted on the course web page. Assignments are due at noon
on the specified date - this means that both your electronic submission and your hard copy submission must
be completed by that time.
For some assignments we will use a system of "slip days" to give you some flexibility with the
assignment deadlines. Each
person starts the term with five slip days, which can be used to push back assignment deadlines. Slip days
work as follows:
Assignments that are submitted late (with no slip days to cover them) will not be accepted and will
receive a mark of 0%.
- Pushing an assignment deadline back by one day (24 hours) costs each person in a group one of their slip days.
If one or more group members don't have enough slip days left, then the group can't slip.
- An assignment deadline can be pushed back at most 3 days
except for the final assignment's deadline, which can be
pushed back at most 2 days..
- Partial slip days are not allowed, e.g., it is not possible to use part of a slip day to push a deadline back by 6 hours.
- Slip days are not transferable from one student to another.
