INCOMPLETE GRADES

I Incomplete

 All prescribed course work is to be completed during the semester or term in which the course is offered unless the syllabus specifies a longer period of time. If medical or other emergency conditions develop, the instructor may, at his or her discretion, award a grade of Incomplete (I).

 The grade of Incomplete shall be awarded only when the following conditions are met:

  1.  the student has valid reasons for not completing the work;
  2. the student has presented these reasons to the instructor; and
  3. the missing work constitutes less than one-third of the required work for the course.

The “I” permits an extension to allow the student to complete the course work within a period of up to a full semester. The instructor is not required to allow the full period (a semester) for the completion of the missing work, however. Summer session is counted as a semester for the graduate program. Therefore, a student receiving an Incomplete at the end of the Spring semester must complete the course work by the end of August of the same year.

An Incomplete grade is a privilege granted by a faculty member in response to extraordinary circumstances. The “I” should not be understood to be the normal response to missing work. Ordinarily, when a student has failed to complete required course work by the end of the semester, the instructor will either report a grade for the course in which the missing work is given a value of zero or, in cases where failure to complete assigned work constitutes failure to meet the minimum requirements of the course, award a grade of F.

When a grade of Incomplete is awarded, the instructor shall specify in writing the work to be completed and the deadline by which it is to be completed, using the Incomplete Form, with copies to the student and to Merrill Center. When the missing work is completed, the instructor shall promptly submit a Change of Grade Form to Merrill Center, changing the Incomplete to the appropriate letter grade.
