JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

An F might not be the lowest letter grade A-State students can receive anymore.

The A-State Graduate Council made a proposal to the Student Government Association on Sept. 15 that included a new grade, FI, which reflects the failure of academic integrity.

The proposal stated that the grade could be recorded throughout any part of the semester.

This would stop students from dropping the course to avoid a failing grade.

Right now, the integrity evaluation remains the same because the Student Government didn’t take action at the meeting.

SGA President Logan Mustain said all comments regarding the proposal will be forwarded to the Graduate Council and the Undergraduate Enrollment and Academic Policy Committee by Sept. 25.  

“The next step in the process is for the Grad Council and the Undergraduate Enrollment and Academic Committee to prepare a final draft or to recommend the withdrawal of the proposal by Oct. 15,” Mustain said.

Mustain said if the proposal isn’t withdrawn, a  vote between constituency groups will take place by Oct. 20.

The results of that vote will be brought back to the Student Government Association by Nov. 9.
