Incomplete Grades

If a student is unable to complete all the requirements of a course within the given timeframe due to extenuating circumstances, they may be assigned an Incomplete grade. The student is required to make arrangements with the instructor to complete the outstanding work by a specified deadline, after which the Incomplete grade is converted to a letter grade.

Students will have up to one year to complete unfinished work for a class. If a student does not complete outstanding work within a year, the Incomplete will default to a letter grade.

Incomplete grades include:

INB – Incomplete Grade with a B default grade
INC – Incomplete Grade with a C default grade
IND – Incomplete Grade with a D default grade
INF – Incomplete Grade with an F default grade
INNP – Incomplete Grade with an NP default grade

The condition of removal of the incomplete grade and the final grade to be assigned shall be documented by the instructor and provided to the student. A final grade shall be assigned when the work stipulated has been completed and evaluated or when the one-year time limit for completing the work has passed.

The incomplete grade will not be used in calculating units attempted nor for grade points.

A student may not re-enroll in a class for which an incomplete grade symbol is shown on the student’s transcript.

At any time during the one-year period, faculty may submit to Admissions and Records an official Grade Change form to assign a grade other than the default grade.
