Students who cannot fulfill all the work for a course due to a medical or family emergency may be assigned an incomplete only if arrangements are made with the instructor. An incomplete must be made up within one calendar year immediately following the end of the term in which it was assigned. The university policy on incompletes from the latest catalog states the following:
An "I" must normally be made up within one calendar year immediately following the end of the term during which it was assigned.
This limitation prevails whether or not the student maintains continuous enrollment. Failure to complete the assigned work by the calendar year deadline will result in an "I" being converted to an "IC" symbol, or an "NC" for non-traditionally graded courses, unless the faculty member assigns a specific letter grade at the time the incomplete is completed, which would replace the "I" in the student's record.
- It is the responsibility of the student to bring pertinent information to the instructor regarding why they cannot fulfill all the work during the current semester and to reach agreement on the means by which the remaining course requirements will be satisfied. If the instructor agrees, the instructor will enter an "I" grade for that course for that semester.
- It is a student's responsibility to follow up with the instructor in terms of removing an Incomplete. The instructor will assign a final grade when the work agreed upon has been completed and evaluated. The instructor will then submit a "Change of Grade" form to the University for processing.
