Each term a student successfully completes a semester of thesis units (6.ThM)--in which they have submitted the thesis proposal or are in the process of writing the thesis--they will receive a grade of J (satisfactory). During the semester that students submit a thesis for the MEng degree, their supervisor will provide the undergraduate office with a final letter grade. Incompletes are not granted for 6.ThM.
If a student fails to submit a thesis proposal within the first term of the MEng Program, the Undergraduate Office will record a grade of U (unsatisfactory). Thesis supervisors may also request a grade of U if students do not make satisfactory progress on the thesis project.
