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. The student should not reregister for the course to remove the incomplete.

Along with the recording of the incomplete grade, the instructor must also file with the chairperson of the academic department the student’s average grade and a written description of the work which must be completed before the incomplete is removed.

Procedure for the Removal of an Incomplete

The instructor must submit a Change of Grade within SIX WEEKS after the beginning of the next semester to remove the incomplete grade. If the incomplete grade is not removed within the time specified, the incomplete grade is automatically changed to an “F”. Developmental, thesis and research courses are exempted from the six week time limit.
