Assignment deadlines

Most Coursera courses have personalized deadlines that begin when you enroll in a course. There is no grade penalty for a missed deadline, so you can work at your own pace if you can't or don't want to meet the suggested deadlines.

To see your personalized deadlines for a course you're enrolled in:

  1. Open the course you want to see deadlines for.
  2. Click the Grades tab.
  3. Check a specific week to see deadlines for that week's assignments.

Some courses are still on sessions, which means everyone has the same deadlines, and you'll need to switch sessions in order to change your deadlines if you fall behind. 

Missed deadlines

If you miss a deadline, your grade won't be affected, and you don't need to change your deadlines. 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 deadline, you might not get enough peer reviews. If you need more peer reviews, you can post in the forums asking for more peer feedback.

Reset or change your deadlines

If you miss 2 deadlines in a row or miss a deadline by 2 weeks, you'll see an option that says Reset my deadlines. Even if you don't see that option yet, you can still submit work - there is no penalty for a "late" assignment.

Note: Since Coursera courses no longer run on sessions, you don't need to worry about waiting for a session to start or switching sessions.
