Incomplete Policy

Incomplete Policy - March 22, 2013

An Incomplete is a temporary grade assigned at the discretion of the faculty member. It is typically allowed in situations in which the student has satisfactorily completed major components of the course and has the ability to finish the remaining work without re-enrolling but has encountered extenuating circumstances, such as illness, that prevent his or her doing so prior to the last day of class.

To request an incomplete, on-campus students must complete the Incomplete Request Form from the website (Distance Learning students may also download it from the Shared Folder of the Files tab in Populi) and have it signed by the instructor.*

Students receiving an Incomplete must submit the missing course work by the end of the sixth week following the semester in which they were enrolled. An incomplete grade (I) administratively turns into the grade of “F” if the course work is not completed.

Students who have completed little or no work are ineligible for an incomplete. Students who feel they are in danger of failing the course due to an inability to complete course assignments should withdraw** from the course.

* Distance learning students must send their form to their professor via email for approval. “Approval” should be understood as the professor responding to the student’s email in favor of granting the “Incomplete” status of the student. On campus instructors will submit the incomplete form to the registrar at the time they submit student grades. Distance Learning instructors will submit the incomplete form to the Distance Learning Office upon finalizing their grades in the learning management system.

**A “W” (Withdrawal) will appear on the student’s permanent record for any course dropped after the end of the first week of a semester to the end of the third week. A “WF” (Withdrawal/Fail) will appear on the student’s permanent record for any course dropped after the end of the third week of a semester and on or before the Friday before the last week of the semester.
