Incomplete Grades

Special Classification of Grades

Incomplete or "I" Grades

A grade of “I” (Incomplete) may be issued to a student who is unable to complete a course due to an unexpected EMERGENCY situation. In order to receive an “I” grade, the student must initiate an official “Permission to Receive Incomplete Grade” form and provide sufficient documentation of the situation which has occurred. The request must be submitted prior to final exams and is subject to the approval of both the instructor(s), Registrar and the Vice President for Student Success and Enrollment Management. An “I” grade not removed within four weeks after the beginning of classes for the next regular semester automatically converts to an “F” grade. No quality-point average can be computed for a student while any course remains incomplete.
