Grading and Policies
Grading conventions and policies can be found in the class syllabus: syllabus-mis3501-fall2017-v1.1.pdf
The following text is in the syllabus, but it is repeated here for emphasis.
MIS Department Professional Achievement Points Requirement:
The MIS Department has instituted a professional achievement points requirement for all MIS majors. This class is a checkpoint to ensure that students are focused on this requirement and on track to earn their 1,000 points by graduation. Students in MIS3501 must earn a minimum of 200 points by the end of the semester. Students who fail to earn the required points will receive an “Incomplete” for this course regardless of performance on exams or class participation!
If a student fails to earn the minimum number of professional achievement points within one year from the end of the semester or does not notify their instructor that they have earned the minimum number of professional achievement points, then their “Incomplete” will be changed to an “F” automatically. The grade of “F” will then be the student’s permanent grade
