Incomplete Grades

A grade of “I” is assigned when students have maintained a passing average but for reasons beyond their control have not completed some specific course requirement(s), such as a report, field experience, experiment, or final examination. The “I” grade must be removed within one year, or it is converted to a grade of “F.” It is the student’s responsibility to resolve the “I” grade before the deadline set forth in the University Academic Calendar for removing incompletes.

In the case of a thesis, dissertation, or directed study in progress, a grade of “IP” (in progress) will be recorded each semester of registration for credit until completion of the thesis, dissertation, or directed study, at which time a final grade of “S” (satisfactory) or “U” (unsatisfactory) will be assigned. The “IP” grade requires continuous enrollment, excluding summer sessions, or it is converted to a grade of “U.”
