    Our college has a standard late policy - assignments are not accepted more than 5 days past the due date. It would be great if in the account or course settings we could make that a default on assignments, that the close date is 5 days after the due date. Ideally, this would be flexible so if the assignment due date changes, the close date would move with it - always 5 days from the assignment due date. Of course, the option to assign a different due date to a section/group/individual would be necessary still so that late papers with extensions would be permitted. It's a pain to add this every semester, even though we use blueprint courses, the close date never adjusts with the new due dates.
