We understand the challenges that many students are facing during COVID-19. The division of academic affairs has amended several academic policies to help support students during this time.

Updated Academic Policies and Information

  • Pass/No Pass Grading Option

    Undergraduate students may elect the Pass/No Pass option for a maximum of two (2) eligible courses until April 21, 2020. An exception is being made to this policy to accept Pass/No pass in the minor: students may elect take two (2) pass/no pass within their minor. Students should read the policy carefully to determine if the course they are selecting is eligible and should consult with their academic advisor if they have any questions.

    The policy on electing Pass/No Pass may be found on page 85 of the Academic Catalog.

  • Final Exam Period

    The Final Exam Period for all undergraduate students, including graduating seniors, is May 2 through Friday, May 8. Final Grades for all students are due at noon (EST) Tuesday, May 12, 2020.

  • Incomplete Course Work

    The policy for requesting an Incomplete may be found on page 33 of the Academic Catalog. Students who have extraordinary circumstances beyond their control may request a grade of Incomplete by contacting their instructor and completing a contract that specifies the work that is outstanding. A grade of Incomplete will not be entered until the Registrar receives the contract, and the grade will be entered once the instructor receives and evaluates the outstanding work.

    The final day for the Registrar to change an Incomplete to a letter grade for Spring 2020 courses is September 16, 2020.

    Incomplete Course Work for Students Wishing to Graduate in Spring 2020

    Students with Incomplete contracts who wish to be eligible for a Spring 2020 graduation date must submit outstanding work to their instructors no later than May 21, 2020. The final day for the Registrar to change an Incomplete to a letter grade for Spring 2020 courses for Spring 2020 graduation is May 26, 2020.

  • Extension of Date to Withdraw from a Course

    The last date for undergraduates to withdraw from a course for the Spring 2020 semester is April 17, 2020. Students must consult with their faculty advisor in order to determine if a withdrawal will affect financial aid or result in any other issues related to academic progress.

  • Academic Grade Appeals

    The process for addressing grade appeals can be found in the Academic Catalog starting on p. 22. Students who wish to appeal a grade should first consult the course instructor, preferably within 5 days of the issue arising, as outlined in the procedure. In the event the issue is not resolved, students should consult the policy regarding next steps as noted in more detail in the catalog.

  • Summer/Fall 2020 Registration

    The university has not made any changes to the registration dates for summer/fall 2020 classes. Students should meet virtually with Advisors about their schedule. Please refer to the Academic Calendars for Registration dates.

  • Diplomas/Proof of Degree

    Mailing of Diplomas

    Diplomas will be mailed to the student once the degree is conferred. Student should note that the COVID situation has interrupted the production of diplomas by the printer. Students will be updated on the status as information becomes available.

    Proof of Degree

    Students who need proof of their degree completion may request a transcript once their degree has been awarded.
