In Progress Grade (IP)
No credits will be awarded for an IP grade.
For EN0911, EN1011, EN1015, FY 1001, FY1011, MA0291, MA0392, MA1501, the policy of Landmark College is to permit entry of an IP (In Progress) grade by the instructor, when a student has not demonstrated an acceptable level of proficiency in meeting the course outcomes by earning a grade of D+ or below.
The grade of IP may not be applied to other courses.
An IP will appear and remain on the student’s transcript, instead of a letter grade, but will not be factored into the GPA. No credits will be awarded for an IP grade. The student receiving the IP must repeat the course at the same level in the following semester.
At the non-credit level, the student will take the usual second-semester, non-credit class. At the 1000 level, the student will repeat the same course. Advisors should consult with department chairs to choose the most appropriate placement for students prior to registration.
At the end of the second attempt at a class, a letter grade will be entered on the student’s transcript and factored into the GPA. If a student does not demonstrate an acceptable level of proficiency in meeting the outcomes of the second-semester course, the student will receive a letter grade of D or F and can use the forgiveness policy to repeat the course again, with the permission of the appropriate department chair.
