Students at the College of International Security Affairs are assessed throughout the semester using a variety of means, including papers, presentations, exams and/or seminar contribution. Where students are assigned group projects, faculty will employ techniques to assess the contributions of individual students.
The following serve as guidelines in the assessment of students in coursework at CISA. Definitive criteria for student assessment are found in course syllabi.
CISA uses a traditional Grading Scale system:
69 and below
The grade of Incomplete may be given to students who do not complete all course requirements by the end of the course. An Incomplete grade is given at the discretion of the professor.
Students receiving an Incomplete have one calendar year from the end of the course to complete the course requirements. If the requirements have not been fulfilled by the end of one calendar year, the final grade will be recorded as an “F.” Students are responsible for ensuring that all requirements for the Incomplete have been fulfilled prior to the deadline.
Students who have more than two Incompletes will not be allowed to register for additional classes until all previous coursework has been completed.
