2020-2021 Graduate Catalog

In-Progress Grade

The in-progress (IP) grade is used only for outreach courses which span more than one semester. The IP designation is determined by the course, not the individual student. The IP grade is assigned at the end of the first semester of the course and is replaced by the earned grade at the end of the course. If the student does not complete the course by the end of the established grading period, the appropriate grade will be assigned by the instructor. If the grade is incomplete, the existing incomplete grade policies would then apply.

Courses not required for the master’s or specialist degree that show an in-progress (IP) grade at the time of the degree conferral will not hinder the degree conferral. However, when completed and graded, those courses will be reflected within the time frame of the degree, causing the hours to count as part of the degree.
