The specific time required to make up an incomplete grade is at the discretion of the instructor. However, the College of Business policy on the resolution of incomplete grades requires that all work required to satisfy an incomplete (“I”) grade must be completed within a period of time not exceeding one calendar year from the assignment of the incomplete grade. After one calendar year, the incomplete grade automatically becomes a failing (“F”) grade.Withdrawals Any student who decides to drop is responsible for completing the proper paper work required to withdraw from the course. Grade Appeal Process A student may request a review of the final course grade when s/he believes that one of the following conditions apply: There was a computational or recording error in the grading. Non-academic criteria were applied in the grading process. There was a gross violation of the instructor’s own grading system.

Disruptive Behavior Policy Statement Disruptive behavior is defined in the FAU Student Code of Conduct as “... activities which interfere with the educational mission within classroom.”Students who behave in the classroom such that the educational experiences of other students and/or the instructor’s course objectives are disrupted are subject to disciplinary action. Such behavior impedes students’ ability to learn or an instructor’s ability to teach. Disruptive behavior may include, but is not limited to: non-approved use of electronic devices (including cellular telephones); cursing or shouting at others in such a way as to be disruptive; or, other violations of an instructor’s expectations for classroom conduct. Faculty Rights and Responsibilities Florida Atlantic University respects the right of instructors to teach and students to learn. Maintenance of these rights requires classroom conditions which do not impede their exercise. To ensure these rights, faculty members have the prerogative: To establish and implement academic standards To establish and enforce reasonable behavior standards in each class To refer disciplinary action to those students whose behavior may be judged to be disruptive under the Student Code of Conduct.
