This grade is awarded to students who do not meet the attendance requirement of a course.
2) What are “l” grades and when are they used? An “I” grade may be assigned at the instructor’s discretion upon request by the student to permit the student time to complete required course work which he/she was prevented from completing in a timely way due to non- academic reasons. The instructor may require the student to document the request to assist in the decision. The instructor may choose not to grant the request.The “l” grade should be considered only when the student has the potential to earn a passing grade if the missing work is made up. -The instructor shall prescribe in a written agreement with the student the engaging course work required for completion and removal of the “I” grade. A copy of this agreement will be kept on file in the office of the appropriate dean. All work must be completed within the first eight weeks of the subsequent term, unless the instructor agrees to a longer timeshare extension of time (not to exceed one year).
When the work is completed, the instructor will submit a grade change form with the grade earned. If the work is not completed within the prescribed timeshare, the “I” will automatically change to an “F” grade. The student will be informed of the final grade signed. – To be eligible for an “l” grade, the student must be passing the course at the time of the request and must have completed at least 75 percent of the course work. 3) What is the FCC Code of Ethics? Consistent with The Code of Ethics of the Education Profession in Florida, 68-1. 6, Principles of Professional conduct for the Education Profession in Florida, an obligation to the learner requires that an individual shall not harass or discriminate against any learner on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national or ethnic origin, political beliefs, marital status, indicating condition, sexual orientation, or social and family background and shall make reasonable effort to assure that each learner is protected from harassment or discrimination. ) What about academic honesty?
