Academic Policies

Attendance

Students are expected to maintain good attendance throughout the semester. In one semester, 1 absence per course is allowed. Two absences will lower the final grade by one full letter, and 3 absences may require that the course be dropped. In the event that a student misses a class, he or she is responsible for the activities of that class period. Make-up exams are given solely at the discretion of the professor and are not guaranteed.

Grading

The following grade values are assigned for each credit:

A+= 4.000
A= 4.000
A-= 3.667
B+= 3.333
B= 3.000
B-= 2.667
C+= 2.333
C= 2.000
C-= 1.667
D+= 1.333
D=1.000
D-= 0.667
F= 0.000
INC = Incomplete

Students must maintain a minimum grade-point average (GPA) of B (3.0) to remain in good academic standing

Incompletes

Students receiving an “Incomplete” (INC) for a course must complete all course requirements within the subsequent academic term in order to be able to register for courses thereafter. “Incompletes” must be completed within one year or the grade will automatically convert to a grade of F and the student will receive no credit for the course.

Probation/Dismissal

Students whose grade-point average (GPA) falls below 3.0, or who receive a grade of D or lower in any course or grades of C in two courses, are automatically placed on academic probation. This may be grounds for dismissal from the program. Students on probation may address the program chair in writing within two weeks of notification regarding their status to appeal their case.

Prerequisite Course Passing Grade Policy

Students must earn a B or better in each prerequisite course and each Language Arts class to be eligible for entry into any of the three concentrations of the Master of Science in Information Systems program or the Master of Arts in Web and Multimedia Design program.

Grade Challenge Policy

Students have the right to challenge a course grade that they feel it is an unfair assessment of their work in a course. The student initiates an appeal by submitting, in writing, a formal request to the professor for a grade change within 14 days of receipt of the grade. The student must provide evidence to support the appeal. The professor should, in turn, respond to the student's request within 14 days of receiving it. The professor's response should include evidence that supports the basis for the grade. If the student's appeal to the professor is denied or goes unanswered, the student may appeal, again in writing, to the Dean, who will assign an independent faculty committee of reviewers to examine the basis of the appeal. After assessing the appeal, the committee will make a recommendation to the Dean, which may be to lower or raise the grade, or to retain the original grade. The Dean will then make a final decision in the matter based on the independent faculty committee's recommendation. The Dean's decision is final and not subject to appeal.

Directed Study Policy

Under special circumstances, students in the Graduate School of Technology may elect to take courses listed in the bulletin as directed studies under the guidance of a Graduate School of Technology professor. The standard credits per course will be awarded upon successful completion of the directed study and the standard fee per credit hour will be charged to the student.

    The following conditions apply:
  1. The student must demonstrate that there are special circumstances which make the directed study a necessity, given their progress toward the degree.
  2. The student must contact the Department Chair to discuss the Directed Study, which must be approved by the Chair and the Dean.
  3. The student must work with a Graduate School of Technology professor who is willing to engage with that student in the directed study.
  4. Only under special circumstances may a student take more than one directed study each semester, capped at a total of 9 credits over the course of the program.
  5. The student must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 when applying for the directed study.
  6. While the professor will assess the student’s work and determine the student’s grade, the Department Chair and the Dean will review the assessment to insure that the level of work and the student’s accomplishment warrants the granting of credit for the directed study.

Scholarships

A 3.0 undergraduate GPA or its equivalent is required to apply for scholarships. If you are not awarded a scholarship upon your initial enrollment to the program, you may reapply for a scholarship for the Fall of the following academic year if your GPA in the program is at least 3.0.

Scholarships must be renewed annually, each Fall. A new scholarship application must be submitted by the student to apply for scholarship renewal. A student whose cumulative GPA falls below 3.0 is not eligible for scholarship renewal but may reapply for the Fall of the following academic year.

Graduation

Students who expect to graduate should discuss their status with their advisor within one semester prior to the anticipated graduation date, complete an Application for Graduation, and pay the graduation fee. Students must maintain a 3.00 grade-point average (GPA) to be eligible for graduation from any of the programs of the Graduate Division.

Candidates for degrees within the period September through June may participate in that school year’s commencement exercises. Participation in the commencement exercises does not necessarily mean that a student has graduated. Graduation is certified officially by the Office of the Register only after auditing the student’s record for completion of all degree requirements.
