Grades of Incomplete

A grade of Incomplete indicates that the student’s work is satisfactory but that completion of some requirement has been prevented by unusual circumstances. A request for Incomplete will be considered in the last few weeks of the semester until grades are submitted. The student will complete the Request for Incomplete Grade form with the instructor and submit the signed form to the Registrar’s Office. The responsibility for communicating to an instructor a request for an Incomplete rests with the student, and when no such communication occurs, the instructor is expected to give the final grade most appropriate to the work actually completed. An instructor may petition for an Incomplete grade on a student’s behalf only if the student is unable to complete the request for medical or other compelling reasons.

The student is expected to complete the required work so that a final grade can be submitted by the instructor within thirty days after the beginning of the next fall or spring semester. If a grade is not submitted by this time, the incomplete grade will be changed to a failing (F) grade. Any extension of an Incomplete beyond this time must have the approval of the instructor and the chief academic officer.
