Incomplete Grade: An incomplete grade is a temporary symbol given at the discretion of the instructor for work not completed because of serious interruption not caused by the student’s own negligence. To be eligible, written documentation must be provided. The student also must have successfully completed half of the coursework with a passing grade. An incomplete must be made up as quickly as possible, but no later than two consecutive semesters after the initial taking of the course or it will automatically default to an “F” or the grade that the student earned in the course. There is no extension of the two semester deadline. The student must not register again for the course to make up the incomplete. Students who have incomplete grades on their records must remove the incomplete by the end of the fourth week in which they plan to graduate. Failure to do so will result in a cancellation of graduation.

 

Student Misconduct: FIU is a community dedicated to generating and imparting knowledge though excellent teaching and research, the rigorous and respectful exchange of ideas, and community service. All students should respect the right of others to have an equitable opportunity to learn and honestly to demonstrate the quality of their learning. Therefore, all students are expected to adhere to a standard of academic conduct, which demonstrates respect for themselves, their fellow students, and the educational mission of the University. All students are deemed by the University to understand that if they are found responsible for academic misconduct, they will be subject to the Academic Misconduct procedures and sanctions, as outlined in the Student Handbook.

 

 

 

Extra Credit: Extra Credit is offered in only one format: a 3-5 minute oral presentation on any topic in Criminal Justice. In order to receive credit, the student must show at least two separate sources of research used in the preparation of the presentation. The assignment may be completed at any time before the last exam, and is worth one grade level “bump.” Thus, if your final average is a C-, you will receive a C for the course, if you successfully complete the extra credit. Students may only give 1 presentation.
