Once your course has been officially marked as graded by the professor and the Registrar's Office, the course will no longer be active and taken off that current semester's schedule. The now graded course will be found in my.svsu.edu under "My Academic Profile".
If you have a NR (Not Reported) grade, that means that the grades were not turned in by the professor at the noon deadline. The NR will be replaced with the correct letter grade as soon as the official grade is turned in by the professor to the Office of the Registrar.
Withdrawals after the no refund date are possible until the end of the withdrawal period. Depending on the date of withdrawal this can result in a grade of W or WP/WF, but no financial refunds will be issued.
Withdrawal forms can be obtained from the Office of the Registrar. During the WP/WF period, these grades must be requested from the instructor by the student. Only the instructor of record can issue a WP or WF. The form, signed by the instructor, must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar within the WP/WF time period. WP will not affect the student's GPA, but the WF will affect the student's GPA.
Also, please note that if a course withdrawal results in a course schedule that is less than 12 credits, your financial aid will likely be affected. If this is the case, and you are receiving financial aid, please confer with the Campus Financial Services Center before withdrawing from any class: 964-4900 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is the student’s responsibility to officially withdraw from a course within the deadlines posted on the Important Dates calendar.
Incompletes are discussed and decided between the student and the professor to have an extended amount of time to work on assignments after the deadline for official grades are due to the Office of the Registrar. Incomplete courses are considered exceptions to regular grading practices (extenuating circumstances). Incompletes should be used sparingly and only in credible emergencies that are outside a student's control.
Students have up to four (4) weeks into the new semester before the Incomplete Contract has to be turned in for their grade. If work is not turned in by that date the grade will be default. The Incomplete Contract deadlines are University Policy and are not subject to change.
If you feel that the final grade that was submitted by the professor is incorrect, as a student, you are allowed to appeal the decision by requesting a grade change within 30 calendar days from the final course grades that were submitted to the Registrar's Office.
Saginaw Valley State University's Repeat Policy states that a course may be repeated at SVSU to raise a grade. All grades shall remain on the student's academic record (transcript), but in computing the GPA, the better grade will be counted.
A course taken at SVSU may only be repeated at another institution if the course is an equivalent course at SVSU, the initial course grade at SVSU was a D, F, or WF. A grade of a C- or better must be earned in the repeated course. There is no transfer of the grade earned from the institution and no recalculation of the SVSU GPA.
(Please note, that the institution must be regionally accreditedfor more information please see the Transfer FAQ).
No course can be repeated at SVSU more than twice for a grade. Appeals for additional repeats may be made to the Dean of the appropriate college.
