Audit (AU)
Students auditing a course are expected to meet the same attendance requirements as regular class members. Normally, auditing students are not required to complete assignments. Students may complete all requirements and change from audit to credit.

In Progress (IP)
Students not completing the requirements of an internship, field experience, or practicum by the end of the semester, with the permission of the instructor, may complete them the following semester. A grade of IP is assigned until completion when it is replaced by a letter grade. Otherwise an F is assigned.

Repeat Privileges and No Credit (NC)
Students may repeat any course in which a D or F was earned. When the course is repeated with a grade of C or better, the new grade is entered on the transcript and the cumulative grade point average is recalculated. The student must pay full tuition when repeating a course for credit.

Good Standing for Graduation
Students must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (C average) in order to graduate. Furthermore, all fees and tuition must be paid in full prior to commencement.
