Students are expected to complete all requirements of a particular course during the semester in which they are registered. However, if at the end of the semester a small portion of the work remains unfinished and should be deferred because of some serious circumstances beyond the control of the student, an 'I' may be submitted.
An 'I' for a prolonged illness may be submitted only after the written approval of the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs has been secured. An 'I' for other causes may be submitted only with the approval of the dean of the school/college.
Along with the recording of the incomplete grade, the instructor must also file with the head of the department the student's average grade and a written description of the work which must be completed before the incomplete is removed.
An incomplete grade must be removed within SIX WEEKS after the beginning of the next semester. If the student has not removed the incomplete within the time specified, the incomplete is automatically changed to a n "F". Developmental, thesis and research courses are exempted from the six week time limit. The posted deadline date to remove incompletes for a given semester can be found on the academic calendar.
