What is the UoPeople time zone?

Because UoPeople students come from all over the world and from all time zones, our clock is set to GMT (-5). This ensures that we have a consistent standard in which to open and close the window for assignment submission. However, we recognize that this means deadlines for course work will occur at different times for different parts of the world. Please take this into account when planning your studies. The best way to find out what the UoPeople time would be in your country at any given time is to go to one of the "time zone" sites on the internet,such as: http://www.greenwichmeantime.com or http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html.
