The grade of "I" is assigned when a student has maintained a passing average but for reasons beyond his or her control, is unable to complete some specific course requirement(s) such as a report, field experience, experiment, or examination. An "I" grade must be removed before the expiration of the first nine weeks of the student's next regular semester (fall or spring) of enrollment, or within twelve months of the last day of the semester or term in which the "I" was assigned, whichever comes first. 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.
"I" grades earned in eight-week terms (Weekend and Evening College, Fort Bragg Center, Seymour Johnson AFB or other distance learning sites) must be removed before the end of the next term in which the student is enrolled, or within twelve months of the last day of the term in which the "I" was assigned, whichever comes first. Students are responsible for initiating the actions necessary to remove "I" grades.
An extension to the time limit for removing an Incomplete grade will be granted only once, and only under extremely unusual circumstances. A request for such an extension must be made in writing, with appropriate documentation, to the instructor of the course, and must be approved by the instructor, his or her department chair, and dean, and submitted to the Office of the Registrar prior to the deadline for removing the Incomplete grade. The department must submit the “I” Grade Extension Request Form to the Office of the Registrar for processing.
Students not present at an officially-scheduled final exam must contact 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 deferred examination is granted, a grade of "I" will be assigned. If the instructor is unavailable, the student should seek assistance from the instructor's department chair or dean in contacting the faculty member before the end of the final exam week.
