Sinclair FlexPace FAQs

+ What happens if I can't maintain an 80% in my FlexPace course?

If you fall below an 80% in your course, you may still complete the course. You will be awarded the grade you have earned, but you may not be able to take any more FlexPace courses. For example, if you are only earning a 65% in your FlexPace course, you will pass the course with that 65%. You will no longer be allowed multiple attempts to complete assignments; your first attempt will be your final grade.

+ When can I start my FlexPace courses?

FlexPace courses remain open for enrollment throughout the semester, usually even after traditional course start dates have passed. After you have completed the admission requirements, including completion of the FlexPace Orientation and How to Succeed in eLearn, you may self-register for any FlexPace course if you have a 3.0 GPA.
