What does it mean to submit an assignment to the dropbox?

Submitting an assignment to the assignment dropbox means that you will create a document on your own computer using software specified by your instructor. You'll use the process below to submit the file to the instructor. Your instructor will specify the programs you can use in order to view the file on his/her computer. The assignments are time-stamped when they are submitted.

Special Considerations:

    1. Names of files to be uploaded cannot contain SPACES. Replace SPACES with - (dashes) before attempting to upload.
    2. If you are going to be submitting more than one file, you must upload all files before clicking on "Submit Assignment". Once you have clicked on "Submit Assignment", you cannot make any further changes.
