In exceptional circumstances and with the instructor's consent, a course may be left incomplete (except for a regularly scheduled final examination--see paragraph 3 below). In such cases, a grade of 'INC' will be assigned provided that the student has filed a request for extension of time to complete the work of the course and the instructor has consented to such a request (the instructor can enter both the Incomplete grade and the intended date by which it is expected to be completed via Bannerweb). Unless an earlier date is specified by the instructor, grades of 'INC' must be made up as follows: for Semester I, by mid-semester of Semester II; for Semester II, by the first day of the following semester. Extensions beyond these dates for any period of time up to but no more than one year from the end of the semester in which the course left incomplete was taken may be granted by the instructor who will indicate this in writing to the Registrar.
A course not completed by the designated time will be assigned a grade of NC unless the instructor indicates that sufficient work has been completed to justify course credit by submitting, as appropriate, a grade change from INC to A, B, C, or S. A grade of NC assigned in accordance with the procedures may be changed subsequently, but no later than one calendar year after the end of the semester in which the course was taken.
Note: For Undergraduate students, while the faculty rules above that govern the deadlines for which an incomplete must be completed remain intact, it is important to note that for academic standing purposes the deadlines by which to have a positive effect on one’s academic standing are: February 1st for fall courses and July 1st for spring courses.
