How Do I Submit An Assignment Print

Modified on: Wed, 13 Jul, 2022 at 9:14 AM


These are instructions for submitting an assignment in either the Digital Learning Center.

Step 1

Login to the system and select your course. Then select the assignment for which you would like to make a submission. Those assignments which require submission will have an icon with a hand holding a document.

Step 2

Once you click to upload the file, click on the “Add Submission” button at the bottom of the page. This will open the file picker which will allow you to select a file.


If you do not see the “Add Submission” button, it is because the assignment is not allowing submissions on that date. You might be trying to submit an assignment before or after the allowed dates. Or, if you know the assignment should be allowed, there may be an error in the system. If this is the case, contact us right away informing us of this problem so that we can fix the error.

If you click on “Add Submission” and the screen turns black, then you are using an outdated browser.

Step 3

Some browsers allow you to drag-and-drop files into the submission area. Other browser require you to click “Add” and select a file from your computer.

If the file is too large, you will not be able to upload it. Check the “Maximum size for new files” on the upper right to see the limit.


If this is available, in the upper left hand corner you will see text that says “drag and drop” available. This is the easiest way to upload your files. Once you drop a file into the drag-and-drop area, please be patient as the file uploads. Depending on the size and connection it may take a few minutes.

At times, the drag-and-drop feature may run into problems. It may not accept the file you are trying to upload. If this is the case, try adding the file using the instructions below.


  1. Click on “Add…”

  2. Click on the button right of the text “Attachment” labeled “Browse…” or “Choose File”.
  3. This will open a dialog box. Select the file you would like to upload.
  4. Press “Upload this file”.

  5. The file should now appear.

Step 4

Finish submitting the file by:

  1. Click on “Save changes”. You will then see the “Submission Status” page.
  2. Click on “Submit assignment”. This will finalize your submission. After this button is pressed, you will no longer be able to change your submission.
  3. Click on “Continue” so that your assignment will be submitted for grading.

Make sure that after your assignment is uploaded that you press “Submit Assignment” so that your submission is finalized and submitted for grading.
