Q Grades

The policy approved by UCC in the Fall 2002 concerns the period of time to complete "Q" grades. The policy states "the maximum time that "Q" grades will be allowed to stay on a record, without conversion to a grade of "F", will be three (3) years.

Incomplete Grades

The grade of "I" (incomplete) is given if a student is unable to complete the requirements of a course due to a serious illness, death in the family, or other personal emergency. To request an incomplete in a particular course, students should apply directly to the instructor of the course. Apply to your college dean if you are unable to complete the requirements of all your courses.  If the dean or instructor considers your reason for requesting an incomplete satisfactory, he/she will approve it.  If you do not complete the work for a course in which you received a grade of "I" by the last day of classes before final exam week of the next full semester, you will receive a grade of "F" for the course. You may not graduate from the university with an incomplete grade on your record.   

At the end of each semester, a listing of outstanding "I" or "Q" grades is sent to the faculty for review. If the grade of "I" is not changed to a regular grade by the deadline provided, the grade will be changed to an "F" grade.

First Day Attendance Policy

The first day attendance policy allows faculty to remove students from a course if they do not attend the first class session and do not provide notice to the faculty or the department secretary. This also applies to the first class after a student adds a course during schedule adjustment. This policy is not enforced during the summer sessions.
If students are dropped from a course this way, they may only reschedule if it is still open during schedule adjustment.
Even if students do not attend the first class, they are still responsible for officially dropping the course during schedule adjustment. Otherwise, they may remain scheduled for the course, which can result in fees being charged to them and a grade of "F" on their academic record.

For more information on grading policies, please refer to the College Catalog under "Academic Policies and Procedures".
