For instance, receiving five additional points on an application project would completely offset the effect of not receiving five points on your service learning work. You will be able to calculate your final grade by dividing the total number of points you earned by 357. I will then convert this a letter grade using the following percentage cut- offs. You can monitor how your percentage changes throughout the semester as your assignments are graded by looking at the “Weighted Total” column on the Blackboard site beginning on the third week of class. Before that, you will be able to see the total number of points that you have earned to date. Please note that there will be absolutely no rounding of final scores under any circumstance. For example, a final score of 89.99 percent will translate into a B+ for the course. I strongly encourage you to pursue extra credit opportunities beforehand to avoid the possibility of nearly missing a cut- off.

A grade of I will only be assigned when a small portion of the total semester’s work has to be completed and the student has a compelling reason why the work cannot be completed within the regular timeframe. I encourage you to withdraw from PSYC 103 if you feel that you will be unable to complete the requirements for the course within the expected timeframe. The last day you can choose to drop the course with a W grade is October 31. After that date, the University’s late withdrawal policy applies. Approval is given primarily for non- academic reasons. It requires the completion of a form that includes a statement and rationale for your request, an explanation of why it was not requested by the...
