8 Grading at SMU SMU is an elite, private university creating well-rounded engineering and technology leaders. We are aware that for many students employer reimbursement is contingent upon a B or better grade, but this cannot and will not effect SMU grading. Maintaining high standards helps ensure the long-term value of your SMU degree.

9 Homework Usually one problems set due every week One week later for distance students Late homework receives a grade of zero Assignments available on Blackboard Plan to spend at least 10 hours per week on home work, reading assignments, and studying for exams 10 Submitting Homework
