If you'd like to allow your students to submit the assignment past the due date, select Allow Late Submissions and choose the date and time you'd like to allow late submissions until.

Optional: If you choose Assign To Some Students instead, a list of students for your selected class appears. Please note, if you deselect a student that has a Has Already Submitted or Is Already Graded label, any existing submitted or graded assignments associated with that student are deleted.




Select the students you want to assign the task to and click Save. A confirmation message appears giving you a summary of your changes. Click Ok.
