Authorized Incomplete ("I") Grade Conditions

Office of the Registrar

Incomplete indicates that a portion of required coursework has not been completed and evaluated in the prescribed time period due to unforeseen, but fully justified, reasons and that there is still a possibility of earning credit. It is the responsibility of the student to bring pertinent information to the attention of the instructor and to determine from the instructor the remaining course requirements which must be satisfied to remove the Incomplete.

The instructor of the course will complete an Incomplete Contract. The date by which the course is to be completed will be stated; however, no more than one year from the time the class ended will be allowed to complete the requirements. Go to: Student Center Help: How to accept an Incomplete Contract.


Either the instructor will change the Incomplete to an appropriate grade or it will administratively be changed to either a letter grade of F (Failure) and will be included in the student’s grade point average or to a grade of NC (No Credit) depending on the grade mode of the course.
