Incomplete Grades

The grade of "I" (Incomplete) may be issued by an instructor for any course in which the instructor deems that the work has not been completed and that it would be fair and equitable to allow the student additional time to complete the work. The conditions and terms for completion of the course are mutually agreed upon by the instructor and the student.
 
The deadline for completion is at the discretion of the instructor but is not to exceed six months from the last day of the term in which the course was registered. If a final grade is not submitted within six months, the incomplete grade converts to an “F” (Fail) on the student’s record and will be reflected in the students’ GPA. The grade of “F” will be considered a permanent grade.
 
The incomplete grade may be extended by the instructor for up to an additional six months, or one calendar year from the end of the term in which the course was registered. To initiate an extension, the instructor will notify the Office of the Registrar in writing. The instructor is under no obligation to grant an extension. If a final grade is not submitted within the six month extension period, the incomplete grade converts to an “F” (Fail) on the student’s record and will be reflected in the students’ GPA. The grade of “F” will be considered a permanent grade.
 
A written agreement must be developed between the instructor and the student to clarify a plan for completion of the course. The student initiates this agreement by completing an Incomplete Grade Agreement Form after the incomplete grade has been issued by the instructor. The form will be filed in the Office of the Registrar as official documentation of the agreement.
 
Students should note that an incomplete grade does not yet reflect credit in the course. This means if a course with an incomplete grade is a prerequisite for another course, they may not register for the other course until the incomplete grade has been changed to reflect a passing grade. Prerequisite overrides are granted at the discretion of the department head for the course.
