An extension beyond the semester's deadline for written work (the last day of classes)requires the permission of both the professor and the student's dean. Students should contact both before the deadline has expired. Your dean and your professor must agree to all terms of the extension. Normally, your dean will recommend or support an extension only if the delay results from circumstances beyond your control, such as illness or family or personal emergency. Your dean may also support an extension if two or more of your classes have no work due during the finals period itself. In the absence of these circumstances, your dean may also support an extension with grade penalty.
Extensions are not given to accommodate travel plans, to allow students to do the best possible job on an assignment, for prearranged family or social events, because several assignments fall due at the same time, or because an assignment was started late. Since not all cases are clear-cut, your dean will take into consideration whether or not an extension would be fair to you, your classmates and your professors. If an extension is warranted, your dean will make sure that the terms are fair, clear to all parties, and officially recorded. If an extension does not seem warranted, your dean will help you come up with strategies for managing a difficult workload and meeting your academic obligations.
Important Note: Students seeking extensions in Haverford classes must follow Haverford's procedures and deadlines. More info is available here.
