Grading Policies for Yun's Courses

Traditional Grading Options

The Seattle Community Colleges use a numerical grading system. Grade-point average (GPA) is determined by dividing total points earned by total credit hours attempted. Numerical grades may be considered equivalent to letter grades as follows:

Program Counselor

For details and guidance, contact a counselor. Find your counselor at http://www.seattlecentral.edu/counsel/counselorcontact.php

The counselor for MIC, Applications Support, BIT, and IT programs is Dale Zeretzke.

His office is at BE5166 and can be reached at Dale.Zeretzke@seattlecolleges.edu and 206-934-3830.

 

The letter grades listed below may also be used. These grading options are not as universally accepted as the above numerical system and a student's total academic record may be reduced by the number of credit hours received for non-traditional grades if evaluated by another institution with a numerical system. Students may jeopardize future educational opportunities, particularly for graduate or post-baccalaureate study, when other systems of performance evaluation are used. Certain non-traditional grades may also jeopardize financial aid status.

I

Incomplete: Indicates that student performed at a passing level, completed most of the course

requirements, and intends to make up the missing work. Incomplete is given only at the discretion of the instructor when the student has attended regularly, done satisfactory work, and furnished satisfactory proof to the instructor that the work cannot be completed because of illness or other circumstances beyond the student's control. Coursework must be completed during the following quarter, excluding summer quarter. If the student fails to remove the "I" by completing the coursework in the specified time period, the "I" will remain on the transcript. The instructor must file a written statement of reasons for giving the Incomplete, listing a description of the work which the student will need to do to remove it, with the dean of the division in which the course is offered. If the student elects to repeat a course rather than make up the work, the "I" will remain on the transcript. The grade earned will compute in the GPA; after receiving an "I" in a course, a student may repeat that course only once.

 

If your instructor agrees with your grade option,

1. Complete the Incomplete Grade Form, read all instruction, sign, and mail it 5 days begore the end of the quarter to:

Seattle Central Community College
1701 Broadway
The BIT Office, BE3176, C/O Mr. Yun Moh
Seattle, WA 98122

2. Your Canvas course will be closed once the quarter ends. Be sure to have all assignments (textbook assignments, discussions, projects, and etc) you have submitted backed up on your computer.

3. Email the eLearning (dislrn@seattlecolleges.edu) office with a request of adding you in the Canvas cousre shell for the next quarter. They will need the following information:

- Your full name, email address, phone #, student ID #, course title and number (e.g. MIC 101), current quarter (e.g. Fall 2016), instructors's name.

Once you are enrolled in the new course shell, you may re-submit the assignments.

 

 

 

S

Satisfactory With Credit: Used for individual progress, clinical, and skill development courses. This symbol is not used for college transfer courses numbered 100 and above, except designated pass/fail courses as approved by the Office of Instruction.

 

N

Audit: To audit a course means to register for and attend class without receiving a grade or credit. An "N" grade, rather than credit, is recorded on the transcript. Students must officially register to audit a course. Registration for an “N” may be made until the end of the second week of the quarter without the instructor’s signature or the end of the eighth week (sixth week of summer quarter) with the instructor’s approval and signature. Students are responsible for consulting with the instructor regarding class requirements. After an “N” is issued, the course may be repeated no more than two (2) more times. If the instructor’s requirements for an “N” are not satisfied by the student during the course, the instructor may issue an “NC” (No Credit) symbol. Students changing their status from audit to credit or credit to audit must make official changes within specific deadlines.

 

NC

No Credit: Indicates that the student did not fulfill the requirements for receiving an "S" grade, an "N" grade or a numerical grade in the course. A student in good standing may request an "NC" symbol from the instructor prior to the final examination, granted at the instructor's discretion. After an "NC" is issued, the course may be repeated no more than two (2) more times. An "NC" does not affect a student's GPA.

 

W

Official Withdrawal: This grade will be recorded and will remain on the student's transcript. After a "W" is issued, the course may be repeated no more than two (2) more times. (See "Adding or Dropping Classes")

 

Y

Ongoing Course: Used for a course that is two or more quarters in length. The final grade for the course will be reported at the last quarter.

 

 

Academic Honesty and Integrity Statement

 

 

Plagiarism

According to the Student Handbook (page 41), the instructor will follow the procedure stated in Washington Administrative Code, WAC 132F-121-110 and Student Rules.

Plagiarism is a serious matter; I am going to follow through the official guidelines.

How to Complete an Incomplete

Taking an Incomplete is your responsibility. You need to prepare, complete, and submit all coursework by yourself.

Before the end of the quarter (you won't have access to the course Web site after the quarter), collect ALL assignment instructions (from the course Web site). Then compile the list in a Word document and submit it along with the Incomplete Grade form. The following is a brief instruction of how to compile the assignment list and how to submit.:

Note: I also strongly recommend you (an ONLINE or HYBRID section student) choosing to "joining in" the course Web site next quarter. It allows you to work with other students in the following quarter. It is as you are taking the course again without re-registering. Contact the Distance Learning located at 2BE1140 for detail, and it involves a small fee. Once you complete the coursework, e-mail the instructor to change your grade.
