Around midpoint of the term, faculty members will be notified by the Office of Registration and Academic Progress of the time when grades for the current session are due. After grades have been submitted by electronic means, they will be processed through the Office of Registration and Academic Progress on the scheduled grade night. Grades will be made available for student view on the web and are used to determine the student's eligibility to attend the next semester or term, to continue in a sequential course, to recommend for graduation or teaching certificate, for a transcript, or other purposes.
Only students who officially withdraw from a course under the terms specified for the mark of “W” will be given a “W” final grade assignment.
Should any one faculty member fail to report all relevant grades by the hour they are due, the resulting situation is one of widespread inconvenience. Therefore, it is essential that the faculty submit all grades in the period in which they are due. It is essential that the grades be submitted through the Web in the proper format. Failure to submit the final grade to the Office of Registration and Academic Progress by the specified due date and time will result in the instructor submitting grades on the Change of Grade Form for each student to the Office of Registration and Academic Progress.
Instructions on grade submission will come from our office to all departmental faculty and secretaries/administrative coordinators.
Students are graded in accordance with the system described in the catalog. The student's work in a course is to be regarded as finished by the close of the semester or term. Exception: graduate students have six years from the beginning of graduate study for the completion of courses RES 697, Research; THES 698, Thesis; DISS 799, Dissertation, CRPRJ 698 and ID 705. If the work is not completed by the close of the semester or term, the student can be given an “I” until the work is completed or until the six-year period is ended.
A student whose work at the close of the semester or term is incomplete because of illness or some circumstances beyond the control of the student may be given an “I” and privileges of completing the work at a later time.
The granting of an “I” must be approved at the end of the semester by the department head or chairperson, by using a Memorandum of Incomplete form. The department head or chairperson retains one copy and sends a copy to the student. It is most important that the conditions for removing the” I” be as specific as possible. Removal of an “I” should be limited to as short a period as possible. If an “I” grade is not removed within the time agreed upon, it becomes an “F”. The maximum time permitted for the completion of an “I” grade is 12 months.
