General Guidelines

THE GRADE OF INCOMPLETE:

The grade ‘I’ indicates that the student's work in a course is satisfactory thus far but has not been completed as of the end of the semester. It may be given only when all three of these conditions are satisfied: 

  1. the course work is substantially completed
  2. the completed portion of a student's work in a course is of passing quality
  3. there is documented proof that it is unjust to hold the student to the original time limit for course completion

It is the responsibility of the student who has incurred a grade of Incomplete to fulfill the requirements of that course within a maximum of one calendar year from the date on which the ‘I’ grade is recorded. After one calendar year, a grade of Incomplete automatically changes to a grade of F on the student's record.

OTHER GRADES:

Effective for the Fall of 2006 there were 2 new grades; I* & F*. These grades are given for academic dishonesty/plagiarism/cheating. When a student has either an I* or a F* that grade can never be changed to a grade of W or FX. Effective with the Spring 2005 grades of FNN is to be entered for a student who has never attended.

ACADEMIC HONESTY:

It is the responsibility of the student to know of the prohibited actions such as cheating, fabrication, plagiarism, academic, and personal misconduct, and thus, to avoid them. All students are held to the standards outlined in the code. Please reference the http://www.iu.edu/~code/code/responsibilities/academic/index.shtml for a complete listing. Any violation may result in serious academic penalty, ranging from receiving a warning, to failing the assignment, to failing the course, to expulsion from the University.

STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES:

If you have a documented disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. Visit Student Support Services at HH 239 (980-6798) or go to web page http://www.iun.edu/student-support/ for more information.

ELECTRONIC COURTESY:

So as not to disturb others please make sure all electronic devices are either turned off or in the silent mode when coming into the classroom. Use of cell phone is prohibited during exams.
