Faculty Brief Email Archive


A few faculty have discussed the possibility of incomplete grades for their students this semester. The Incomplete Work Policy is provided below as a reminder.

With permission of the instructor and the Dean responsible for the course in question, an interim grade of incomplete may be assigned for a course in which the student has met all of the following criteria:

  1. Completed a major portion of the course with a passing grade;

  2. Been unable to complete course requirements before the last day of classes because of documented illness or serious circumstance beyond the student’s control;

  3. Obtained agreement from the instructor and arranged for resolution of the incomplete grade.

The following procedures apply:

  1. The written request must be made by, or on behalf of, the student by the Wednesday of the last week of classes.

  2. If an incomplete is granted by the Dean, the instructor will outline the remaining coursework and the timeline for completion. The timeline cannot be later than the end of the eighth week after the last day of final exams in the semester in which the incomplete was given, except by permission of the Dean responsible for the course.

  3. Incompletes granted as a result of academic accommodations must be verified by the Office of Accessibility.

  4. When the required work is complete, the earned grade will permanently replace the “I” grade on the transcript. If the work is not completed within the established time frame, the student will receive a grade of “F” for the course.

  5. The student is responsible for making sure that the faculty member receives all required coursework according to the established timeline.
