Faculty Senate Minutes

6 December 1994

TO: Faculty Senate
FROM: Behnam Nakhai, Chairperson
Academic Policies Committee
RE: Incomplete Grade Policy
DATE: November 29, 1994


An instructor may issue an incomplete grade (I) if:

An incomplete grade must be removed by the instructor assigning a final grade within 8 weeks of the start of the next semester (summer session excluded).


The above motion clarifies the policy on the issuance of incomplete grades and resolves all the problems addressed by the Registrar in his February 16, 1994 memorandum in the following manners:

1. After the 8-week time period (or extension) has expired, the Registrar will ask the instructor to assign a grade to close out the record.

2. If the student does not enroll in the University during the following semester, the instructor will still be asked to assign a grade to close out the incomplete and the student will ahve to re-register for the course when s/he returns if s/he wishes to change the recorded grade.

3. If the student cannot complete the work within the 8-week time period, the instructor may request a reasonable time extension for the student to complete the work; or the instructor may choose to simply assign a grade based on the work which has been completed.
