A grade of “I” (incomplete) may be given when all requirements in a course have not been completed due to circumstances beyond the student’s control, such as a major illness. An “I” may not be given in order to improve a grade. The responsibility for requesting an “incomplete” rests on the student and arrangements should be made by the student with the instructor.
Course work to satisfy the “I” must be completed within the first six (6) weeks following the close of the semester in which the “I” was granted. Exceptions must be approved by the Vice-President for Academic Affairs. The grade issued to replace an “I” should be filed in the Registrar’s office by the instructor on a “Request for Change of Grade” form. Work not completed by the deadline will be listed on the student’s transcript as an “F”.
