**"G" before an assignment indicates a Graduate Student SMP Alternative assignment. All graduate students can do the regular SMP assignments. The "GSMP"s or "GRIP"s are strictly an option to the regular "SMP"s. 

Choice Assignments are strictly optional and are extra credit. You must complete ALL of the Assignments (to your professor's satisfaction)  to get credit for the choice (O) assignment. (Even if credit is not earned on the assignment for excessive lateness defined as 2 days past the deadline.)

Note:  If you missed an Assignment and submitted it later than the "late" deadline, it may be counted as your one Choice Assignment.  If it is an SMP assignment, they must be submitted in order.  In other words,  SMP2 cannot be received before SMP1, SMP3 cannot be received before SMP2, etc.

Final Course Grade:


You must complete ALL of the tests and all parts of the Stress Management Program sections (SMP) and all other Assignments to be eligible to receive an "A," "B,"  REGARDLESS OF THE NUMBER OF POINTS EARNED.  You must complete ALL SMP sections and remaining work with at least a 60% average to PASS THE COURSE. All work must be completed by Monday of WEEK 9 at the required time or the grade will be calculated on the basis of the points earned up to that time. No "IP"s (incompletes) are generally given.
