Course work is incomplete when a student fails to submit all required assignments or is absent from the final examination. The "I" may be assigned in lieu of a grade only when all of the following conditions are met: (a) the student has been making satisfactory progress in the course; (b) the student is unable to complete all course work due to unusual circumstances that are beyond personal control and are acceptable to the instructor; and (c) the student presents these reasons prior to the time that the final grade roster is due.
If a student, because of extenuating circumstances, is unable to complete all of the requirements for a course by the end of the semester, then the instructor may recommend an incomplete (I) for the course.
Effective with incompletes earned in Fall 2009, the time limit in which the work must be completed may not exceed one semester (or full summer). Should the student fail to complete all of the work for the course within the time limit, the incomplete will be automatically changed to an "F." An "Incomplete" will not be used in calculating the grade point average for a student.
