Incomplete Grades A grade of Incomplete may be given, at the discretion of the instructor for a course, when a student has completed at least 70% of the required course material but cannot complete all requirements by the end of the semester. An incomplete course must be completed within six weeks from the first day of the subsequent long semester. Academic Dishonesty The faculty expects from its students a high level of responsibility and academic honesty. Because the value of an academic degree depends upon the absolute integrity of the work done by the student for that degree, it is imperative that a student demonstrate a high standard of individual honor in his or her scholastic work. Scholastic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, statements, acts or omissions related to applications for enrollment or the award of a degree, and/or the submission as one’s own work of material that is not one’s own. As a general rule, scholastic dishonesty involves one of the following acts: cheating, plagiarism, collusion and/or falsifying academic records. Students suspected of academic dishonesty are subject to disciplinary proceedings. Students with Disabilities Disability Services provides accommodations for students with documented disabilities. Students are urged to make their needs known to Disability Services as soon as they are admitted to the university. The Office of Disability Services is located in the Student Union (SU 1.610), (972) 883 2070. Drops and Withdrawals Courses dropped through Census Day will not show on the student’s transcript. Students may not add courses after Census day without the consent of the instructor and the Dean of Undergraduate Education. Please see the Comet Calendar under academic section for specific deadlines. Through the fourth class week, students may drop classes by completing a drop form and having it signed by their academic advisor and course instructor. A grade of “W” (withdrawn) will appear on the student’s transcript. During the fifth through ninth weeks of the semester, students who submit a completed drop form will receive a grade of “WP” (withdrawn passing) or “WF” (withdrawn failing) depending on the student’s performance in the class. On the drop form containing the advisor’s and instructor’s signatures, the instructor is required to record the student’s academic progress in the class to that point. After the ninth week of class, a student may only drop a class for nonacademic reasons.
