School of Liberal Arts Syllabus Supplement

Syllabus Supplement

Withdrawals after the first week of classes require approval of an academic advisor and may require a signed schedule adjustment form. See https://facultystaffcentral.iupui.edu/enrollment/drop-add-procedures.html the Schedule of Classes, or the Campus Bulletin for more information. A basic requirement of this course is that a student will participate in class and conscientiously complete writing and reading assignments. Students must inform their instructor in a timely manner if they are unable to attend class or complete an assignment on time. If a student misses more than half of class meetings within the first four weeks of the semester without contacting the instructor, the student may be administratively withdrawn from the section. Administrative withdrawal may have academic, financial, and financial aid implications. Administrative withdrawal will take place after the full refund period, and if administratively withdrawn from the course a student will not be eligible  for a tuition refund.

Incompletes are rarely given, and then only if at least 75% of the work has been completed at a passing level, and extreme circumstances prevent completion of the remaining work. For more information, see https://studentcentral.iupui.edu/grades-progress/incompletes.html
