Set Up Email Reminders

You can receive an email notification stating that an assignment due date is approaching, anywhere from 6 to 48 hours before the assignment is due.

You can also request email notifications to be sent to you when other changes occur, such as when a due date changes, when someone posts an announcement, or when your instructor responds to your extension request, private message, or help request.

Note: You need an email address to receive notifications. If you do not have a valid, confirmed email address on file in WebAssign®, a message is displayed asking you to enter one.

To request email notifications:

  1. From the menu, click Notifications.
  2. On the Settings tab, select the number of hours before an assignment is due that you want to receive an email message. You can select more than one time frame.

    Note: If you need to verify your email address, a Verify this email address button is displayed. Click it to verify the address and follow the instructions on the screen.
