If that gpa is not achieved, thestudent will be dismissed from the University.The student may use the appeals procedure to present extenuatingcircumstances which may lead to readmission as a graduate student. Heor she will also need to present a plan for successful continuation in theprogram.Expiration of CoursesStudents are expected to make steady progress toward their degree.Unless stated otherwise in the department’s policies, courses expireafter seven years and need to be retaken if they are to count toward thedegree.Repetition of CoursesStudents may repeat a course in which they receive a grade of C (2.0)or lower. The student must request permission to retake the class priorto the beginning of the class, and this permission is placed on ﬁle inthe Registrar’s Ofﬁce. At the end of the course, the grade the studentreceived in the repetition of the course is recorded on the transcript; thisgrade is used to recalculate the grade-point average. The original gradeis no longer computed in the grade-point average but does remain on theofﬁcial transcript. The students will be assessed tuition for the retakencourse.GradingFormal reports of the student’s progress are available at the close of eachsemester.Final ExaminationsFaculty policy requires a culminating experience, such as a ﬁnalexamination or project during the ﬁnals week of a traditional semester.Exemptions to ﬁnal examinations may be offered to students carryingan A for the course at the discretion of the instructor. First semesterfreshmen are not eligible for exemptions. Second semester freshmenand sophomores can be exempted from one exam per semester. Juniorsand seniors can be exempted from no more than 2 exams per semester.If an instructor offers exemptions and students elect to take them,the instructor must submit the name of the course and the names ofstudents taking the exemption to the ofﬁce of the Provost's Ofﬁce beforethe second last week of the semester.Incomplete GradesAn incomplete grade given in any term (i.e., ﬁrst and second semester,Winterim, Summer Session) becomes a failing grade if the work is notcompleted within three weeks after the end of the ﬁnal examinationperiod for that term or by the time agreed to between the instructorand student. Requests for extension of time to resolve an I grade will
CUW Graduate Catalog 2019-2020be approved only when the instructor is satisﬁed that circumstancesprompting the request justify waiving this three-week policy. In unusualcircumstances, beyond the control of the student and the approval of theinstructor, incomplete grades can be held for one semester.Individual Instruction/Independent Study/Guided StudyStudents may be given the option of taking a course as IndividualInstruction or Independent Study or Guided Study.

Students may sign upto audit a traditional class before the semester starts as long as thereis room in the class. After the semester starts, students may changetheir registration status from enrolled for credit to audit up until thedrop deadline. Students taking accelerated classes must register as anaudit before the class starts. The university offers audits on a spaceavailable basis, and programs/majors/instructors have the ability to notallow audits: such policies need to be stated in writing. Self-paced onlineclasses cannot be audited.A student who audits a course has access to the in-class (and/or online)didactic portions of the course. The student is expected to attend class,but the student is not required to participate in any of the course’sassessment activities, and the instructor is not required to assess thestudent’s progress in the course (that includes the formulation of acomprehensive assessment such as a course grade). The university doesnot require, expect, or allow the student with a documented disability –other than a physical disability – to participate in its disability servicesprocess, as the students will not take part in the university’s courseassessment. Skills courses, such as foreign language, applied music,and some art courses are not available for audit.Change of Name or AddressStudents are to promptly notify the Registrar in writing of any change inname or address.Academic Probation and Dismissal PolicyIn general a graduate/professional student, admitted without condition,who does not maintain a cumulative GPA of at least a 3.0 (after taking9 credits) is placed on academic probation; s/he then has 9 credits toraise his/her GPA to 3.0 or better. If the student fails to achieve thisgoal, the appropriate Dean (Mequon) or Campus Dean (Ann Arbor),in consultation with the Program Director, will review each case todetermine if dismissal is appropriate. Some graduate and professionalprograms have established their own standards and procedures foracademic probation and dismissal, and for an appeal, which takepresence over the aforementioned general procedure.7Appeal ProcessGraduate or professional students who have been dismissed from theirprogram and had their appeal denied by the program may only appealto the Provost's Ofﬁce if they believe that the program’s appeal processwas not properly followed. If that is the case, the student will present anargument in writing to the Provost's Ofﬁce. The Chief Academic Ofﬁceror designee will examine the request, and if s/he ascertains that dueprocess was not followed, s/he may return the appeal to the programfor reconsideration. This decision will be communicated to the studentwithin 10 working days of receiving the request.All dismissed students may appeal a decision to the President of theUniversity (if at Mequon) or to the Chief Administrative Ofﬁcer (if at AnnArbor) in writing within 5 working days of the decision only if they candemonstrate that due process was not followed.Academic EthicsMutual respect and concern for one another in the atmosphere of aChristian caring community is the basic principle which should governthe relationship between student and instructor. Faculty are professionalin their expectations of academic excellence and students respond withan appropriate level of effort and commitment. Unprofessional conductand unethical behavioral are serious breaches of the academic contract.Academic DishonestyAcademic honesty is the foundation of our education insititution.
