Get an Automatic Extension

Your instructor might let you have an automatic extension of the due date for some assignments in WebAssign.

Important: Late work usually has consequences. Your instructor might penalize your assignment score when granting an extension.
  1. While working on your assignment, click Extension Request.
  2. Click the Automatic tab, if necessary.
  3. Pay particular attention to the Penalty that is displayed under Settings to find out what penalty, if any, applies.
  4. Do one of the following:
    • If you accept the terms of the extension, click Accept Automatic Extension. You can then begin working on the past due assignment.
    • If you do not want to accept the extension, click Cancel. For example, a penalty might apply to each automatic extension request and you might decide not to accept the extension.
