Students who receive Incomplete grades must complete their work by the deadline indicated on the Academic Calendar. Failure to meet deadlines will result in the assignment of an “F” grade for the course.
A grade of “I” may be assigned when a student has completed and passed a majority of the work required for the course with a grade of C or better. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, if a student cannot complete the full course, then the student can present his/her case to the instructor in writing. This must be done one week prior to the final week of classes. The instructor will decide upon a grade of “I” although he/she is under no obligation to grant the student an “I.” If the instructor decides to take the case, then he/she will have to assess the percentage of the remaining work in relation to what is left to complete the course, in order to determine the letter grade of “I”. A student cannot re-enroll in the same course later to complete an “I” grade. See the Policy on Repeating a Course.
Requests for an extension of a deadline for completion of an “I” grade are subject to the instructor’s approval. The student must submit the completed Extension Form to the Instructor for his/her signature. The instructor must indicate on the form the extended deadline. The instructor may extend the deadline for up to a maximum of two semesters. If the instructor signs the form, then the student must submit it to the Registrar’s Office for processing. If the extended deadline is met, then the instructor will change the grade accordingly. The instructor will have to submit this change within 2 weeks. If the student does not meet the extended deadline, then an assignment of an “F” grade will result, automatically.
A student can only have two “I” grades on their transcript. There is no credit for an “I” grade.
Students who will be graduating must meet all deadlines in order to graduate.
