Important Information Regarding Student Registration Into Classes

As we begin the new semester, the Office of the University Registrar asks for your assistance in making sure that all students are properly registered for their spring 2016 courses.

As per university policy, only officially registered students are permitted to attend courses. The link to official class rosters is found in FlashFAST, under the "Faculty Toolbox" within the "Faculty and Advisor Tools" tab. Students who are not officially registered within the appropriate time period WILL NOT receive a grade or earn credit for the course even if they attend the entire course and complete all required work.

Registration and schedule adjustment deadlines for courses can be found in the Detailed Class Search. To access the Detailed Class Search, visit the Office of the University Registrar's website, click the Schedule of Classes quick link, and select Spring 2016 or select Faculty & Advisors / Resources / Courses from the main menu in FlashLine, then select the Registration Deadlines and Tuition Credit Search.

Instructors are asked to remind students that it is important to finalize and verify their registration within the proper timeframe. After the published deadlines, adjustments in registration will require faculty and Office of the University Registrar approval.

Grades Submission Information

The deadline for submitting final grades can be found on the Office of the University Registrar's website at www.kent.edu/registrar/calendars-deadlines.

Incomplete Mark and NF/SF Grades:

The grade SF (Stopped Attending-Fail) denotes that the student stopped attending the course and did not formally withdraw and must be accompanied by a date of last attendance in the course.

The grade NF (Never Attended-Fail) denotes that the student neither attended one class session nor formally withdrew from the course.

The mark IN (Incomplete) may be given to students who — due to extenuating circumstances — are unable to complete the required work between the course withdrawal deadline and the end of classes. The timeline shall be adjusted appropriately for summer sessions and flexibly scheduled courses. 

Instructors are required to complete and submit an Incomplete Mark Contract to their department chair/school director at the time grades are assigned. 

Access the form from your Faculty Toolbox in FlashLine.
