I - Incompletes

Policies with respect to "I" grades are available in the individual college and school dean's offices. Use of the "I" is at the discretion of the course instructor and/or the academic dean's office.

An enrolled student must request a grade of 'I' if her/his circumstances warrant it. Many schools and colleges have written agreements that the student and the Instructor of Record sign, indicating how the student will complete the missing work. The student is expected to complete the missing work by the deadline determined by the instructor, and within one year maximum.

An "I" is given only when students, for reasons beyond their control, have been unable to complete course requirements. A substantial amount of work must have been satisfactorily completed before approval for such a grade is given.

The instructor who assigns an "I" sets the conditions under which the course work can be completed and the time limit for its completion. The student is expected to complete the requirements within the established deadline.

It is the instructor's and/or the student's decision whether a course should be retaken. If a course is retaken, the student must re-register for the course and pay the appropriate tuition.

The final grade (earned by completing the course requirements or by retaking the course) does not result in deletion of the "I" from the transcript. A second entry is posted on the transcript to show the final grade for the course. If the course is retaken, the original course will have a notation that the course was repeated. The "I" grade remains with the original course. The 'retaken' course will have the final grade.

At the end of one year, "I" grades for courses that are not completed or repeated are changed to an "F".
