Lock an Assignment After the Due Date

If you do not want any students submitting Assignments after the due date, do the following when you are creating the Assignment:

  1. Check the box on the Assignment Post that says  "Lock this assignment after its due date."
  2. After the Assignment's due, students will no longer be able to turn in the Assignment.

Note: Please make sure your time zone settings are set correctly so that it locks at the correct time.

If, after you have initially created your assignment, you decide that you would like to lock the assignment after it's due so that students cannot submit the assignment late, please follow these steps:

  1. Find the Assignment Post.
  2. Click the "Turned In" button to go to the Assignment Overview page.
  3. Click "Assignment Options" in the top right corner.
  4. Check or Uncheck the box for "Lock this assignment after its due date."
