Walsh University Graduate Catalog 2012-2013
Up one level
An "IP" grade is issued when the nature of the course requires ongoing work that cannot be completed in the semester in which the student was enrolled in the course. Typical courses for which an "IP" grade is an option include independent studies, field work/clinical experience courses, project courses, self directed study and similar courses of an unstructured nature. Course work for an "IP" grade will be completed within one calendar year following the semester in which the "IP" grade was issued. When the course work is completed, the instructor of record will issue a revised grade converting the "IP" to the appropriate letter grade. In cases where one year is not sufficient to complete the course work for reasons deemed valid by the instructor, the student may appeal to the program director for an extension. If "IP" course work is not completed and/or an extension has not been approved, the "IP" grade will convert to a letter grade of "F."
