Relay Indiana pivoted to online instruction in response to the evolving COVID-19 outbreak, and we have temporarily closed our administrative office, though staff and faculty continue to work remotely. Please see the most up-to-date information regarding Indiana’s COVID-19 response for prospective and current students below. As always, if you have questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Relay Indiana Classes
Relay Indiana has regulatory approval and instructional flexibility to administer coursework online, and so for the health and safety of our graduate students, school partners, and staff, all Relay coursework and instruction will be conducted online for the duration of the 2020-2021 Academic Year, along with our Summer 2021 term. This includes Deliberate Practice for Residents. Additional details about campus schedules and calendars can be found here.
We have been notified by Pearson – the test vendor who administers the Indiana CORE Content Exams – that testing centers reopened on May 15, 2020, where local guidance permits. You can find additional guidance from Pearson here with the latest information regarding testing, refunds, and rescheduling of exams. Additional details about Indiana certification can be found here.
Pass/Fail Grade Option
Relay Indiana will offer the option for all enrolled students to take any coursework Pass/Fail for the spring 2021 terms. We are providing this option to those who would benefit from alleviating the stress associated with earning a specific course grade, as there might be other pressing priorities such as acclimating to online teaching, caring for one’s self or family members, and many other responsibilities that have developed as a result of COVID-19.
It is important to note that our minimum cumulative 2.7 GPA requirement for graduation will remain unchanged for the Class of 2021. This means that taking coursework Pass/Fail for some students may not be the right option if you hope to graduate on time. Any student in the Class of 2021 with a cumulative GPA lower than 2.7, should consult directly with their adviser before opting into taking a course(s) Pass/Fail. By opting into a course as Pass/Fail, your final Pass/Fail grade will not impact your term or cumulative GPA; however, a Fail in any course will require you to retake the course in order to complete your program of study and graduate.
Requirements and deadlines for Spring 2021 Pass/Fail requests will be released later in the spring term. Students with questions regarding this policy are urged to review the resources below and contact their faculty advisor with any questions.
