(something) is due

The time when an assignment, project, or application "is due" is the time that it must be finished by. The idea is very similar to a deadline. However, "deadline" is a noun and "due" is an adjective.

You can tell what the time something is "due" is by saying:

  • due on (a day)
    I think it's due on the 23rd.
  • due by (a time)
    It was due by midnight last night.
  • due (next ___/last ___)
    Your application is due next Tuesday.
