Information/Policy/Procedure - Removing an Incomplete

The instructor will determine the conditions to be met for removal of an incomplete (I) for undergraduate courses. These conditions will specify the work to be completed and the time allotted for its completion; however, the maximum length of time for fulfillment of requirements to remove an incomplete grade shall be one year or one year after release from active duty for those students who are members of activated military reserve units.

If the work is not completed within this time, the incomplete will revert to a grade of “NC” (or a grade of “U” if taken Fall Semester 1997 through Summer Term 2001). Prior to this issuance of an “NC,” a student may request additional time by submitting a written petition to the Registrar. This additional extension will also require the approval of the instructor or, in the absence of the instructor, the department chair. If the student does not receive an extension, the incomplete grade will revert to a grade of “NC” (or a grade of “U” if taken Fall Semester 1997 through Summer Term 2001). Once an “NC” grade has been issued, a student may improve that grade by using the procedure for “Improving a Grade.”

This rule with regard to time limit shall not apply to students admitted to the Graduate School for graduate credit in courses centered on individual study such as theses, problems, readings, research, seminars, practicum, and independent study (or any other arranged courses). It will apply to all other courses in the Graduate School in which class work is ordinarily completed in the process of the regular semester. However, incompletes will not revert to an “NC” for courses for graduate credit that are not completed within one year and will remain permanently incomplete after a year.
