A student must petition the course instructor for an incomplete grade. The student, in consultation with the course instructor will complete the appropriate form, indicate the reason the incomplete is being requested and clearly specifying the work to be completed, its completion date (the time granted for completion of this work may be less than the maximum time allowed), and the default grade that will be assigned in the event the course requirements are not satisfied. The instructor must approve this form. If approved, the student will retain a copy of this form and submit it to the instructor when the course work is completed.
An incomplete grade issued to a student on academic probation will not prevent or delay academic action for dismissal. A student's cumulative grade point average will be calculated based on all completed course work. A student is encouraged to complete the required work as soon as possible. The deadline for making up an incomplete is eight weeks from the completion of the term in which the incomplete was granted [fall, winter, spring, summer (summer calculated from the last day of summer session III)]. The instructor must submit either:
- a final grade on the change of grade form, approved by department chair and school dean; or
- a recommendation for an extension, requiring approval by the department chair and the school dean.
