Policies on Exams, Grade Submission, and Incompletes
Please turn in your grades and progress reports (electronically) as soon as you can , but certainly by the date on which they are due. The time is 10:00 a.m. for each of these dates below in the 2007-2008 school year:
Fall semester - Thursday, December 27, 10:00 A.M.
Spring semester -
Seniors - Monday, May 12, 10:00 A.M.
All others - Monday, May 20, 10:00 A.M.
Incompletes are granted by Deans and only in extreme circumstances. A situation in which a student is simply not doing the work of the course, or has fallen behind, is not adequate grounds. This semester, 3 of the Deans are authorized to grant incompletes: Tammy Gocial, Jane Martindell, and Tacci Smith. Faculty members may not grant incompletes. Incompletes are granted only because of prolonged or sudden illness, personal crisis, or sudden emergency at the end of the semester.
For students who have been granted an incomplete, the Registrar's office will insert an "I" (letter i) as a grade for the semester--or the instructor should do so if he/she gets to it first. Once the student has completed the unfinished work, or time for doing so has expired, you will be solicited for the final grade that replaces the I grade.
If a faculty member wishes to schedule an exam at a different time, even if the class agrees, the permission of the Associate Provost is necessary. If however, the faculty member wishes to retain the original exam time and add an additional time, no permission is necessary.
If a faculty member gives a single student permission to take an exam at a different time, the faculty member should extend that privilege to the whole class. However, Jane Martindell may, in consultation with an instructor, permit one student to take an exam at a different time because of an illness or emergency; in that case no provision need be made for the rest of the students in the class.
