Requesting a Report-Delayed

The purpose of the Report-Delayed Process is to meet the needs of a student facing unforeseeable emergencies beyond his/her control and are serious enough to prevent completion of course assignments before the semester ends (i.e. extended illness, significant injury, critical family emergency, etc.).

Request forms may be obtained from the Office of the Vice-Provost of Academic Administration (upstairs Metzger west). All Report Delays require the permission of the faculty member, and the authorization of the Vice-Provost.

Notes & Restrictions:

• Requests for a Report Delayed cannot be accepted prior to the 12th week of the semester.

• Report Delays will not be granted for matters such as excessive employment, over-scheduling, or current poor performance in a course.

• Students who miss more than 20% of regular class sessions (including “excused” absences) may be required to drop the course and be ineligible for a Report-Delayed.

• The Report-Delayed process is not available for Summer or Interterm courses.

If the Report-Delayed is granted, a temporary “grade” of “RD” (report delayed) will be issued. Course assignments are typically completed no later than six weeks after the end of the term; the exact deadline will be designated by the faculty member.

In the event of the inability of a student to complete the coursework by the approved deadline, the Office of the Registrar will assign a “W” (official withdrawal) for the course grade.
