Incomplete Grades

The grade incomplete “INC” indicates that a portion of required course work has not been completed and evaluated by the end of the semester due to unforeseen, but fully justified reasons, and that there is still a possibility of earning credit. It is the responsibility of the student to bring pertinent information to the instructor and to reach agreement on the means by which the remaining course requirements will be satisfied. The instructor may not issue the “INC” grade unless it is requested by the student and the conditions for resolving the incomplete are agreed upon in a contract, with the exception of missing the final exam due to an emergency. All grades of “INC” that are not resolved by the deadline in the academic calendar will be converted to grades of “F.”

A student is not eligible to receive a degree until outstanding “INC” grades are resolved either by completion with a passing grade or by acceptance of an “F” (failing) grade. At that time a supplemental graduation check will be done by the Office of Admissions and Registration and the degree awarded if appropriate.
