The importance of late policies

Sometimes in my excitement about a course plan I’ve developed I totally forget to put a late policy in my syllabus. Even after 21 years of college teaching, I forgot to add a late policy to my course syllabus this past fall semester! [What was I thinking? Answer: I wasn’t!]
Why do you need a late policy in your syllabus?

1. Your students need to know up front how you will handle assignments they want to turn in late.
