Instructor Information


Final grades must be submitted within 96 hours after the last class period. Do not enter a grade of incomplete or NF. Please give the student the grade he or she earned at the end of the term. You may submit a change of grade form afterward if necessary. If the student dropped the class at the high school but is still on your USU roll, please contact the USU CE office to assist the student with options to be removed from your course. Students should receive a letter grade. D- grades are not allowed.


In accordance with direction received from USBE and USHE, where possible, USU concurrent enrollment instructors should use the USU Canvas platform when teaching a USU concurrent enrollment course. If you need to also keep a record of scores in your high school instance of Canvas, here is a guide for doing that most efficiently.

Violations of the Code of Conduct

If a student violates the code of conduct as described in Article VI-1 (Cheating, Falsification, or Plagiarism), the instructor must complete the online Academic Integrity Violation Form (AIVF) within 7 days of the incident. An instructor has full autonomy to evaluate a student's academic performance in a course. If a student commits an academic violation (Section VI-1 of the code), the instructor may sanction the student. Application of this sanction must follow Section VI-4 procedural policy. Such sanctions may include:

  1. Requiring the student to rewrite a paper/assignment or to retake a test/examination;
  2. Adjusting the student's grade - for either an assignment/test or the course;
  3. Giving the student a failing grade for the course;
  4. Taking actions as appropriate.

Additional disciplinary action beyond instructor sanction shall be determined by the Student Conduct Officer and the University.

IDEA Surveys

All USU concurrent enrollment courses will have an IDEA survey created for course evaluation. Please encourage your students to complete these surveys as the responses are reviewed by the sponsoring academic departments. There is a three week long window for IDEA Student Rating of Instruction (SRI). Students will receive a personalized email with a link for them to complete the survey. To achieve reliable results, USU seeks a minimum response rate of 60% in all classes evaluated. If you have additional questions, please see the IDEA help videos.
