I (Incomplete)

An I is an interim grade given at the discretion of the instructor at the student’s request and upon evidence that good cause, such as serious illness, prevented the student’s completion of course requirements. In granting a grade of I, the instructor signifies a willingness to receive student work and submit grades in accordance with official deadlines and policies.

• Auditing a subsequent offering of the course may not make up an Incomplete.

• Final grades for students granted temporary reports of an Incomplete must be submitted by the first day of classes of the semester following the Incomplete. However, the instructor may require that the work be completed at any time prior to the end of the Incomplete extension period. Students should confer with their instructors to establish how far in advance of the deadline work must be completed.

• An instructor may request an extension of the original Incomplete by sending written notification to the Office of Records/Registrar before the first day of classes. Any extension will usually be limited to the last day of classes of the semester following that in which the course was taken. Any subsequent extensions beyond the deadline must be approved by the Graduate School.

• If final grades are not reported to the Office of Records/Registrar by the specified dates, the grade of I will automatically change to I/F.
