I am in school. I'm working on an A.A. in Criminal Justice through the University of Phoenix. My finals were due on Sunday. Finals through UOP are, for the most part, papers and/or power point presentations. My classes were Environmental Science and World Religions. So, things were going okay through the term. In the Science Course, the final was a 2000 word paper and a power point presentation. That was simple enough, got it done.

The World Religions final was a 2000 word paper. I got it done, and went to turn it in. The classroom setting is a message board, with 4 forums, one of wich is private just for each student and the professor (each student has their own private forum). The Final was to be posted in this private forum. When I went to submit it at 1:40am there was a message sitting there from my instructor. The message:

"It is now after midnight and you have not posted your final paper. According to Axia College policy I am unable to accept late work beyond the last day of class. If you have any questions please refer to the course syllabus which outlines the policy on late work."

THIS is complete crap! Pardon my crass language, but it is! I checked my syllabus, and sure enough! I had until midnight ARIZONA time...not EASTERN time! So, I sumbited it anyway, telling him that I DID check the syllabus and that the syllabus said I had until 3am.

Well...here I am...2 days later and I STILL haven't gotten a reply from him! I have called my academic adviser, she consulted other people "in charge" and they all agree: I am in the right, my paper WAS submitted on time, and he has to accept it per school policies. How can I get through to him, though, if he won't respond to me!? I have tried emailing him both through his school email AND the personal email he gave the class, no response.

I am understandably stressed out. Our final grades have to be turned in by the professor soon and he won't acknowledge me or my paper!

Anyway, I'll keep y'all updated on this saga. Thanks for reading and for praying for a good outcome.
