Late Policy:

Late submissions will have 5 points per day deducted from the final grade.

The weekend will count as 2 days.

Groups who submit their project on time and then re-submit new copies a few days later are subject to the late policy.

We're Not Unfeeling Monsters!!

The late penalty may be waived in the event of *serious illness, death or other events beyond the students’ control.

The FYP committee, in consultation with the FYP supervisor and Asst Chair, will approve the waiver and set a later deadline.

The Fine Print

“a later deadline” means 1-3 days later

“events beyond the students’ control”:

In all of the late cases last year, the students did not inform their supervisors of their plans or the difficulties they were experiencing. Some of these problems cropped up as early as January and February. The supervisors all said that if they had known about the problems, they could have worked with the students to solve it and meet the deadline.

Other examples of projects that came in later were cases where the students did not anticipate equipment slow-downs or difficulties as part of their planning for completing a project. So for example, waiting until the day of the deadline to take the FYP report to the printers was not seen as an event beyond the students’ control. Likewise, waiting until the day before FYP projects are due to execute your final mix and discovering that the mixing board settings have been seriously changed was not seen as an event beyond the students’ control.

Things to remember
Things to remember …

  • Plan well ahead for any problems

  • Work out a schedule for meeting the supervisors and also completing work as planned

  • Check out with clients (esp sponsored projects) and explain to them the importance of your project and the work that you will be doing over the year and your completion deadlines

  • If finances are involved, make sure that the client is ready to fund you for the project. Prepare the budget and get it approved by the client

  • OR if you are sourcing for funds, do make sure that you have enough and if necessary consult your supervisor and sign an agreement with them.

  • In case of problems, please inform your FYP Supervisors immediately.
