Determination of Grades

Each instructor is responsible for determining the grading and examination policy for their class. This policy includes how the instructor arrives at the semester grade for each student, the proportion of grade given for papers, tests, hourly exams, semester examinations, or other requirements of their course. The instructor must provide a written copy of their policy, along with a course syllabus, to their class, and must file a copy of the policy with their Department Director of the Graduate Program, the Faculty Office, and the Academic Affairs Office. Once grades are posted in the Registrar's Office, they are considered final and cannot be changed by the instructor unless there was an error in the posting or calculation of a specific grade.
