How late may I set the due date for the final assignment? May I grant a freshman an extension?

All assignments must be scheduled with due dates prior to the start of the Final Examination period. Final papers, take-home exams, projects, presentations, and other culminating course assignments may be due after the end of regular classes on or before the day of each seminar’s assigned Exam/Final Deadline Group. This date can be found in the seminar listing in the online My.Harvard course catalog.

Final projects that include individual or group presentations may be scheduled only after the fourth day of Reading Period and may extend through the Final Examination Period, but the project deadline must be the day of the seminar’s assigned Exam/Final Deadline Group. Beyond this date, the student must petition the Administrative Board of Harvard College.
