A+ and Failure Statements

Final grades of A+ and F, assigned to undergraduates, must be accompanied by an A+ and Failure Statement, respectively, and be submitted by the instructor-in-charge of the course. To submit your A+ and/or Failure Statement,  including those for the A.B. junior independent work and the senior thesis, log onto the secure ODOC page. A+ and Failure Statements for the senior departmental exam should be submitted on paper. Forms are available in your departmental office, which you may send via campus mail to the Office of the Registrar.
