Incomplete Grades

A grade of Incomplete (I) is a conditional grade granted when the student is unable to complete the basic course requirements. The granting of an Incomplete (I) is reserved for those times when (a) extenuating circumstances have interfered with the student’s studies and (b) there is an expectation the student will be able to complete the coursework within the extended time limit. Note: An “I” is not appropriate when a student has missed classes or has failed to complete assignments.

It is the student’s responsibility to request an Incomplete. The instructor must fill out the electronic Incomplete Grade Form on Form Central before final grades are due. This form must be signed by the instructor and submitted. Once submitted a copy of it will be sent to the student and the appropriate administration to process the request. All Incomplete grades are given a deadline of no more than eight weeks after the last day of the semester. If no grade is submitted or an extension is not requested, the Registrar’s office is authorized to change the Incomplete to an F.

If an extension beyond eight weeks is needed, the student will be required to make a request to the faculty member supervising the course. The faculty member is responsible for determining if the request is acceptable. If an additional extension is granted, the faculty member must notify the Registrar’s office. If no grade is submitted before the start of the next term, the Registrar’s Office is authorized to record an F for the course.
