Assignment deadlines

Most courses generate deadlines based on a personalized schedule that begins when you enroll in a course.

View deadlines

To see your deadlines and incomplete assignments:

  1. Log in to Coursera.
  2. Click the In Progress tab to see a list of courses you’re enrolled in.
  3. Find the course you’d like to see the schedule for and click its name.
  4. Click the Grades tab.
  5. Check a specific week to see deadlines for that week's assignments.

Missed deadlines

Missed deadlines don’t affect your grade in most courses. You'll still be able to earn a Course Certificate once you complete all your work.

If you submit a peer-reviewed assignment after your personalized schedule ends, you might not get enough peer reviews. If you need more peer reviews, you can post in the forums asking for more peer feedback.

Note: Degree courses have hard deadlines which can include late penalties. For more information, see Degree course schedules and deadlines.

Reset your course deadlines

If you miss two assignment deadlines in a row or miss an assignment deadline by two weeks, you'll see a Reset deadlines option on the Grades and Overview pages. Click it to switch to a new schedule for the course with updated deadlines. You can use this option as many times as you need.

This won’t remove any progress you’ve already made in the course, but you may see new course content if the instructor updated the course after you started.

If you cancel a subscription and then reactivate it, your deadlines will automatically reset.

Note: Degree courses have hard deadlines which you can’t reset. You may be able to switch sessions if you fall behind. For more information, see Degree course schedules and deadlines.
