Hi Dr. Raj, I recently enrolled in a Master’s in Human Services program (online). However, I have already missed the dead line for the first assignment. It has been about 7 years since I have been in school and was really looking forward to starting and completing this course well. I’m not sure if I should withdraw from the program and complete it later or if I should take my losses and attempt to complete it any way.
The first thing that comes to my mind is that it is appropriate that you are having some anxieties about being back in school (it has been 7 years and being in school is anxiety provoking itself); a few questions come to mind:
- Can you turn in your assignment late?
- Can you contact the instructor and find out exactly what impact completing your assignment late has on your final evaluation?
Wanting to complete the course “Well” has many different meanings depending on the individual; it is understandable that you had set your goals high but don’t let that stop you from reaching your ultimate goal (completing your Master’s Degree); when all is said and done, if you achieve an “A” or a “B” will all be an after thought.
