Academic Calendar, 2020-2021

(Spring 2021 dates will be published soon.)

Dates and Deadlines for Fall 2020:

 

A student wishing to be considered for an incomplete grade (I) in a course must contact the instructor before the end of the semester, indicating the reason(s) for the request. The instructor will then complete this form, and send it to the Registrar's Office by the deadline for submission of final grades, May 26.

The instructor must copy the student. The Incomplete Grade will not be entered unless the student is copied in the email communication.

The grade change form is now accessible online here.  The instructor of record is to download and complete the PDF form and forward as per instruction using their fredonia.edu email account.

Grades of I, IP, X and NR do not require the approval of the department chairperson.  Email the completed form directly to the Registrar's Office at registrar@fredonia.edu.

A change to any other grade requires the review of the department chairperson.  If approved, the chair will forward the completed form to the Registrar's Office at registrar@fredonia.edu.
