mid-term, faculty members should advise each student who is not doing
work. Depending on the student’s individual situation, the instructor
the student to the
Final grades are entered on banweb according to sent via email. Faculty members are expected to meet the announced deadlines for entering final grades. Failure to do so results in a grade of NR (not reported) for the student involved. The NR grade can result in each student suffering an injustice since it affects academic standing in regard to dismissal and to honors. Moreover, an NR grade must ultimately be changed by hand by submitting a UWG Change of Grade from.
Final grades should never be posted publicly. (This is prohibited under Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974).
Students who withdraw by the midpoint of the semester or the term the course is offered (excluding final examinations) are awarded a grade of “W”. After the midpoint of the semester, students who withdraw are awarded a grade of “WF” except in cases of hardship that are approved by the appropriated college dean. A course in which a “W” is received is not included in the calculation of the grade point average. Grades of “WF” are calculated as “F’s”.
A grade of "I" may be given in lieu of a final grade when a student with work of an acceptable quality (at least a D) is unable to complete the course requirements or take the final examination for non-academic reasons beyond his or her control. An instructor who assigns a grade of "I" will submit an Incomplete Grade Statement form (available on the Academic Affairs Office web page) to the Registrar’s Office indicating the level of performance (A, B, C, or D) excluding the missed work and the work that must be done to remove the incomplete. The Registrar will file one copy with the student's permanent record and send one copy to the appropriate department chair. The instructor should also retain one copy. It is the responsibility of the student receiving an "I" to arrange with the instructor (or the department chair if the instructor is not available) to complete the required work. An undergraduate student must remove an "I" during the succeeding semester of enrollment or within one year, whichever comes first; otherwise, the grade will be changed to "F". Graduate students must remove an "I" within one calendar year or the “I” becomes an “F”. A student completing the work for a course in which an “I” was received should never re-enroll in the course in a subsequent semester.
Once final grades have been submitted on Banweb, all grade changes must be submitted on a Change of Grade from (available in departmental offices) and have the approval of the appropriate department chairperson before they become effective.
Each academic department will articulate a process to determine grade changes when the professor is no longer available (i.e., death, moved, cannot be contacted). Policy statements articulated will be sent to the appropriate academic dean, and grade changes will be approved by the dean in accordance with established policy.
