There is a one-year time limit for grade changes and only the original instructor of the course may change a grade. CR, P, W, and AU designations may not be changed to letter grades. An "I" must be resolved within one year. Grades of "I" not resolved within one year will automatically lapse to grades of "F". See specific sections that elaborate on the institutional policies concerning the designations CR/NC, I, IP, Pass/Fail and W.
