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 2014 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 Registrar's website at www.kent.edu/registrar/, click the Schedule of Classes quicklink, and select Spring 2014 or click on the Registration Deadlines and Tuition Credit Search link under Faculty & Advisors / Resources / Courses from the main menu in FlashLine.
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 only be considered for review by the Office of the University Registrar in situations where students have fully complied with their responsibilities.
Grades Submission Information
The deadline for submitting final grades can be found on the Registrar's website at www.kent.edu/registrar/calendars/index.cfm.
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 administrative mark of IN (Incomplete) may be given to students who are unable to complete the work due to extenuating circumstances. To be eligible, undergraduate students must be currently passing and have completed at least 12 weeks of the semester. The timeline shall be adjusted appropriately for flexibly scheduled courses. Graduate students must be currently earning a C or better grade and are unable to complete the required work between the course withdrawal deadline and the end of classes. Instructors are required to complete and submit an Incomplete Mark Form to the department chair when an incomplete mark is assigned. Access the form from your Faculty Toolbox in FlashLine.
