You were late. Lecturer's reaction can be different. Someone pretends not to notice, somebody makes brief comments. Even if your professors are not as severe as Chinese ones, they could want to hear a clear answer with the reason for your lateness.
Resourceful people always know what to say in such cases, but if you are too sleepy, you could have some problems. Here you have ten reasons which could justify your lateness for a study.

Recently, I feel someone's presence in my room… It seems to me that supernatural forces have settled nearby. They turn off my alarm every morning. I assume this has happened today, so I was late.

My roommate was trying to comprehend the secrets of the universe. Eventually, he has lost the sense and bitten me before leaving the apartment.

If You Are All Fingers and Thumbs, You Will Be Able to Use This Explanation
If you do not forget, I have to bring you an explanatory about my lateness. Well, I was working on it during the whole night. Finally, my body could not stand it, and I fell asleep and slept through the alarm. I was so sleepy that I have spilt coffee on the explanatory.

Sometimes It Is Useful to Blow Your Own Trumpet
Well, I am the only one, who has done the homework a semester ahead. I have also written a course paper and proved Fermat's Last Theorem. So, I had long met with force before going to the university. You know, geniuses are very shy.
Sometimes You Need to Choose a Soft Option
In the case of winter: it was snowing the whole night, transport made his way through the drifts barely.
You Can Carry the Can
In case you missed a political science, "I had a talk with my voters".
