Submitting Assignments

The method for submitting assignments depends on the format of Independent Learning course you’re taking:

Instructions for Online Courses

If you’re enrolled in an online course, you’ll submit all assignments directly within the online learning management system. Be sure to follow all assignment instructions and save a copy of your assignment for your records.

Instructions for Print-Based Courses

If you’re enrolled in a print-based course, you’ll follow the steps below to complete and submit your assignments.

  • STEP 1: Prepare your assignment in a word processing program (e.g. Microsoft Word). If you don’t have access to a word processing program but would still like to submit a handwritten assignment using the form below you may do so as long as your scanned file type and size meet the criteria outlined in step 2.
  • STEP 2: Save your assignment using one of the supported document file types: rtf, doc, docx, pdf. Make sure the file size does not exceed the 10MB limit. If your required scanned documentation is over 10MB please lower the settings on your scanner enough to meet the file size limit, while ensuring that the scan is still legible.
    • Be sure to save a copy of your assignment for your records.
    • Type your full name, course, assignment number and date at the top of your assignment document. Name your document file using your name and course (e.g. Doe.Jane.Physics.docx).
  • STEP 3: When you’ve finished your assignment, return to log in to your Student Account, access the Courses section, locate your print-based course, and follow the prompts to attach your assignment file. Review our step-by-step guide demonstrating How to submit an assignment in your print course.pdf. Alternatively, you may submit your assignment via postal mail to UW-Extension Independent Learning, 5602 Research Park Blvd., Suite 300, Madison, WI 53719.
