Incomplete Marks

The mark of I, or Incomplete, may be assigned only when the student has completed most of the work of the course with a D or better and when the instructor judges the student’s inability to carry the course to completion on time to be due to legitimate causes beyond the student’s reasonable control. The Incomplete is always accompanied by a tentative mark, recorded on an official form, indicating the quality of the work completed and a description of the work to be completed.

The course must be completed, and a final grade submitted to the Registrar, no later than the end of the next semester (fall or spring) in which the student is enrolled or a mark of F will be recorded. By petition and with the permission of the instructor concerned, the Vice President for Academic Affairs may extend the time in cases of hardship.
