Writing an Essay
Submitting the Final Copy

Submitting the final copy

When you submit the final copy to your instructor, try to present it in person if you can. A paper left on the instructor’s desk or slipped under the door to his/her office can get lost or misplaced, and this could result in a late penalty.

Always have a backup of your paper, so that it can quickly be reproduced if the original gets misplaced or lost.

Some teachers apply a late penalty for a paper that is not submitted on the due date. Make a note on your calendar of the due date of the paper, so that it will be submitted on time.
