Incomplete Grades - University Policy


An incomplete grade may be assigned at the discretion of the instructor as an interim grade for a course in which the student has completed a major portion of the course with a passing grade, been unable to complete course requirements before the end of the term because of extenuating circumstances, and obtained agreement from the instructor and arranged for resolution of the incomplete grade. Instructors are not required to assign incomplete grades.

If make-up work requires classroom or laboratory attendance in a subsequent term, students must not register for the course again. Instead, they should audit the course and pay course fees.

If the make-up work does not require classroom or laboratory attendance, the student and their instructor should decide on an appropriate plan and deadline for completing the course.

When the course is completed, the instructor will initiate the change of grade. These procedures cannot be used to repeat a course for a different grade. An I grade should not be assigned to a student who never attended class; instead, instructors should assign a failing grade.
