X Grade

Definition

The University does not assign grades of “incomplete” to undergraduate students. An “X” grade is assigned rarely with the approval of an assistant dean if extenuating circumstances make it impossible for students to complete their work by the end of the term.

Because we assume that students care about learning, students should have acted in good faith during the semester. They should have seen their professor, consulted with an assistant dean, and completed most of the work for the course.

Examples of extenuating circumstances include, but are not limited to, acute illness, death in the immediate family, or service to the University.

Eligibility

Students should meet with an assistant dean in the Office for Undergraduate Studies as soon as they become aware of extenuating circumstances.

Final Grade

Students must complete their work within 30 days of the following term or the “X” will be changed to a grade of “F.”

If the work is completed within the designated time, the “X” grade will be changed to a letter grade by the instructor.
