The grade of Incomplete indicates non-completion of assignment(s) or
failure to take the examination for a course.
- An Incomplete grade cannot be given when a student does not
complete any course requirements or fails to attend class meetings.
- A student who receives an “I” grade may not attend class meetings
in a future semester in order to make up outstanding requirements.
- Students must obtain written permission to receive an Incomplete by
submitting a Course Adjustment Form to the professor before the
officially scheduled final examination.
- The professor will indicate on this form the amount of time allowed
for completion of this work, up to a maximum of 12 months or by the
time the student has graduated (whichever comes first).
- If the missing course requirements are completed within this
time period, the professor must submit a new Course Adjustment Form
indicating the changed grade to the dean's office within 10 working
Effective with Fall 2007 courses, if a grade of “I” is not resolved
with the time allotted, this grade will be changed automatically and
permanently to “FI”, a failing grade. In extenuating circumstances a written
request for a limited time extension to complete course requirements
may be submitted in advance of the one-year deadline by the student to
the professor and dean of the school/college in which the course was
offered, with a copy to the Office of the Registrar for
The grade of “I” is not counted in determining class standing,
eligibility or grade point average. An unresolved “I” grade will
count in the calculation of the grade point average when it changes to
“FI” after the one-year period.
An “I” grade disqualifies a student from the Dean's List. If the
“I” grade is changed to a grade of “C” or higher, the student's record
will be automatically reviewed for Dean's List eligibility.
Although a student's GPA is not affected by an “I” grade, the fact that
the student receives no credit for the course may impact academic
eligibility and, as a consequence, the student's eligibility for
financial aid. An unresolved “I” grade may also impact the
student's eligibility for financial aid and academic standing when it
changes to an “FI” grade, as an “FI” grade affects both the grade point
average and the credit completion ratio.
