    How to Revert an Assignment Submission to Draft

    March 25th, 2020

    If a student submits an assignment prematurely or accidentally, they might request permission to remove and replace it. Under normal circumstances, they can make edits until the due date.

    If a student requests to resubmit an assignment, the instructor will need to change the status of the assignment from "Submitted for grading" back to "Draft submitted (editable until the deadline)" status.
