Anyone with more than 399 points whose final exam grade is above the next 2n course grade cutoffs will be advanced over the next n cutoffs.

No student with more than 399 points will be given a course grade that differs from their final exam grade by more than two letter grades.

Almost all students will be given a course grade that is within one letter grade of their final exam grade.

Qualitative factors such as your class participation might also be taken into account when determining your course grade.

The course grade of ** I ** will be awarded only if all the following
conditions are met:

- You have completed all but a small portion of the required work.
- You have an average grade of
**C-**or better on the work completed. - You have a valid reason for not completing the course on time.
- You agree to make up the material within a short period of time.
- You request the incomplete no later than the day after the final exam.

It is expected that all students will abide by this code during all assignments, quizzes, and examinations in this course.

The Student Honor Council proposed and the University Senate approved
