Incomplete Grades

The grade of "I" may be assigned only when a student has maintained a passing average but for reasons beyond his or her control, is unable to complete a specific course requirement such as a report, field experience, experiment, or examination. An Incomplete Grade may not be assigned to students who have failed to fulfill multiple requirements in a class.

An "I" grade must be removed before the end of the next regular (fall or spring) semester immediately following the semester or term in which the "I" grade was assigned. If the "I" grade is not removed within the stipulated time limit, the grade will be converted to a grade of "F." Students are responsible for initiating the actions necessary to remove "I" grades.

Incomplete Grades for Students Who Miss Final Exams

A student not present at an officially scheduled final exam may only be assigned an Incomplete grade if he/ she contacts the instructor of the course before the end of the final exam week to request a deferred final examination. Students who need to defer an examination must furnish valid support for the request. If the faculty member approves the deferred examination, a grade of "I" will be assigned.
