Grades and Course Credits
Grade Change Policy
Questions about a grade should first be addressed to the instructor of the course and, should the question persist, to the chair of the department in the School of Music, followed by the director of the School of Music, and to the director of the School of Theatre, or the director of the School of Visual Arts.
College of Fine Arts Policy
An incomplete grade (“I”) is used only when the student has conferred with the instructor prior to the submission of grades and there are mutually acceptable reasons for the incomplete work. The instructor and student must sign a joint statement indicating the nature of the work and the date by which the work must be completed. If the work is not completed within 12 months of the last day of instruction in the semester in which the incomplete grade is given, then the grade is permanently changed to an “F” (Fail, no credit) grade. Students must complete the Incomplete Grade Report and submit to the school or college.
