Unless your instructor specified an earlier date, submission of all required course work is due during the last week of the semester on the last class meeting day for each academic program. (Weekend and partial semester courses routinely have earlier deadlines.)
If you cannot complete the required work by the due date, a student may request an extension until the first day of classes of the new semester. Extensions are granted at the discretion of the instructor – they are not an automatic right. You must fill out and give your instructor a Request for Extension of Verification Deadline Form (PDF 14K) (also known as a first extension or “green sheet”) before the due date of the required course work. If the extension is denied, documentation must be submitted to the instructor by the last day of class or you will receive no credit. If the extension is approved, your work will be due on the first day of classes of the next semester.
Faculty members have been instructed to automatically award No Credit (NC) to a student whose course work and documentation have not been received by the extension deadline. Individual faculty members do not have the authority to award an extension beyond the current limitations.
Academic Work Covered By the Extension Policy
The extension deadlines apply to all registered courses, internships, practica, and independent studies registered. Deadlines for master’s projects and doctoral dissertations will continue to be governed by the institution’s policies on the time limits for completing degree requirements.
Antioch University New England recognizes that in exceptional cases there may be extenuating circumstances that make it impossible for a student to meet the first extension deadline. Therefore, it is possible for a student to seek an additional period of time.
The maximum time allowed for the second extension is:
|Fall Semester:||Last day of classes for Spring Semester|
|Spring Semester:||First day of classes for Fall Semester|
|Summer Semester:||Last day of classes of Fall Semester|
|No extensions will be allowed beyond these dates.|
Steps for Obtaining a Second Extension
Such extenuating circumstances will be the exception and must be acceptable to the faculty member and the chairperson of the department in which the student is enrolled. To be granted a second extension, you must obtain a Second Extension Form from the Registrar’s Office, and have it signed by the instructor. If the instructor is based at the Keene campus, you must then deliver the form to the academic department offering the course for the department chair’s signature. If the instructor is not based on the Keene campus, you must provide him/her with a stamped envelope addressed to the department chair. If the chair approves the second extension, the student will be notified by receipt of the copy of the second extension.
Students who fail to file a completed second extension will earn “No Credit (NC)”.
Students who fail to submit required work to the instructor by the second extension deadline, will automatically earn “No Credit (NC)” for the course recorded by the Registrar.
