The quantity and quality of all assignments in a course, including computer projects, will be such that students taking the course can reasonably be expected to complete them by the last teaching day of the semester or by the day of the final examination, whichever comes later.
In accordance with university policy, letter grades for those graduate courses giving them are as follows:
Note that there are no C-, D+, or D- grades.
All graduate seminars in the Department are normally graded S/U (Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory).
A student desiring S/U grading in a course that normally uses letter grades must satisfy the requirements below and submit a written request to the instructor by the end of the fourth week of classes. The instructor's decision is final and will be transmitted to the student in writing. The S grade will be awarded only if the student's letter grade would have been equivalent to C or better. The Graduate School limits the number of S/U credits to no more than 25% of the required course credits in a student's graduate program (not including courses taken as research, thesis, or dissertation guidance).
You may request S/U grading in a course that normally has letter grading if and only if
A grade of I (Incomplete) will be given only in exceptional cases and will be decided case by case.
Once an I grade is incurred by a student, it must be removed after no more than two additional semesters plus the intervening summer, e.g., according to the following schedule:
|Semester Received||Must Be Removed by|
|Fall||December 31 of the next calendar year|
|Spring||May 31 of the next calendar year|
|Summer||August 31 of the next calendar year|
If the I grade is not removed by the specified date, the University will change the I to a grade of U (Unsatisfactory) or F.
If the actual date for removing an I is approaching and you have not yet completed the outstanding work, you may petition the Graduate School for relief. The petition must be endorsed by the course instructor and the Chair of the Department. The Graduate School will decide whether the circumstances (e.g., poor health) warrant an extension.
Note that you cannot graduate with an I grade, whether or not the course in which you received the I is being used for your degree (i.e., whether or not it appears on your Application to Candidacy)!
All students who desire to take CSE 700 (Independent Study) for credit must have their topics approved by the GAC. To get approval, fill out the form shown in the Appendix. Additional copies of the form are available outside 232 Bell. The form must be completed, signed by the faculty member supervising the independent study, and given to the Director of Graduate Studies no later than the second week of the semester in which the independent study is to be performed. Such a form is required by the Graduate School and must be attached to the Application to Candidacy.
