SP Grade Option for Satisfactory Progress

The Satisfactory Progress (SP) Grade Option is part of Lehman's grading system. This new grade option will be restricted to certain graduate-level fieldwork, thesis, or research courses requiring more than one semester for completion.

The SP grade only will be valid for one year. Within the one-year period, a student is expected to continue making sufficient progress. When the work is completed the instructor will submit a Change of Grade form indicating the letter grade earned. If a student fails to complete the coursework within the year, the SP grade will change to a grade of INC. From that point a student must comply with incomplete coursework (INC grade policy).
