Assignment deadlines

Most Coursera courses have personalized schedules that begin when you enroll in a course. There is no grade penalty for a missed assignment 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 schedule 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.

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 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.

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.
