Withdrawal from a Course Students can withdraw from a course up to three weeks prior to the end of the term. To withdraw from a course, it is not sufficient to stop attending class or to inform the instructor of your intentions to withdraw. The student must request to withdraw from the course in writing. A withdrawal from a course requires approval from the program director and/or department chair (see Academic Withdrawal from a Course/Program). Grading Policies and Procedures Grading for the SLP.D. program is based on the following grading scale and/or pass/fail. Alpha Grade A B F Scale 4.0 3.0 0.0 Percent 90–100 80–89 0–79 P I PR NPR Pass (80 percent or above) Incomplete Progress No Progress Retake Policy, Student Progress, Academic Probation, and Dismissal If a required course is failed, the student must repeat the course at its next regularly scheduled offering. Additional tuition will be charged for repeated courses. A student who has experienced one course failure may be placed on academic probation. Students who have been placed on academic probation and earn a failing grade in a repeated course, or any other course (i.e., a second grade of F ) may be dismissed from the program. A student with two or more course failures while in the Doctor of Speech-Language Pathology program may be dismissed from the program. Any course failed on first taking will be considered a course failure. Passing a course through the retake does not negate the original failure for the purposes of retention in the program. The procedures and deliberative bodies that implement these policies and procedures are described in the Student Progress Committee and Student Appeals in the college section of this handbook. Incomplete Grades A grade of Incomplete ( I ) is issued only at the request of the student after approval by the instructor and the completion of the Incomplete Grade Assignment form. The initiation of the process is the student’s responsibility prior to the end of the course. In order to receive a grade of Incomplete, the student must 1. have completed at least 60 percent of the course with a grade of B (80 percent or better) 2. complete an Incomplete Grade Agreement form and send it to the instructor
