7. Thesis Grades: The Grade of J or the Grade of U



The grade of U (Unsatisfactory progress) in 6.ThM will be given if the thesis proposal is not submitted by the end of the first term of thesis registration, which is normally the student's first term in the MEng program, or if the thesis supervisor informs the Undergraduate Office that he or she wishes to give a student that grade due to unsatisfactory progress. The U remains visible on the record but does not count negatively toward the gpa.  The final grade in 6.ThM is a letter grade, not Pass/Fail. No Incompletes (I's) will be given in thesis. A grade for 6.ThM is required from a thesis supervisor by the Undergraduate Office ONLY at thesis completion. Unless a supervisor informs us otherwise, the grade of J will be given until thesis completion as long as an approved and current proposal is on file. For thesis registration, IAP is part of the Fall Term and no IAP thesis registration is usually necessary.
