Incomplete Grade Reporting Policy

An incomplete grade may be requested by a student who has been in attendance, has done satisfactory work (C or better) during the term, and whose work is incomplete for reasons found to be satisfactory to the instructor. A Course Completion Agreement detailing the work to be completed and expected completion date must be signed and dated by both the student and instructor. The original copy of the agreement must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office by the grade submission deadline. The carbon copies of the agreement should be retained by the instructor and student. If a grade change is not received by the Registrar’s Office prior to the 1st Monday following the assignment completion date, the "I" grade will be automatically changed to the official grade as assigned on the agreement. Extensions will not be granted.

  • The grade of Incomplete (I) is an administrative grade that may only be entered by the Registrar’s Office. A grade of "X" (In Progress) will be available for 595, 598, and 599 courses.
  • The instructor will submit the grade earned at the time of grade posting if they choose not to sign a Course Completion Agreement or the student does not request an incomplete grade.
  • The instructor may complete the contract on behalf of the student for circumstances beyond the student’s or faculty control. A summary must be attached to include the instructor communication attempts or actual communication with the student.
