Incompletes are allowed at the discretion of an instructor and will count as an F grade towards the GPA until a final grade has been submitted. Students should take this into account and the effect it will have on their standing before requesting an incomplete from an instructor. Incomplete grades that are not changed to a final grade by the deadline will automatically become an F grade. Please see below for additional information regarding incompletes.
In most cases, all outstanding work for incompletes must be submitted to the instructor no later than the 9th week of the next term (not including the summer term). We strongly recommend that students fill out and file an Application for an Incomplete. This form is required when an instructor sets a deadline for submission of the remaining work that is shorter than the published university deadline.
Students who are seeking to have their degree conferred for the term in which they receive the IN grade must complete all work no later than 6 weeks after the degree conferral date. Conferral dates are listed in the Academic Calendar on the website of the Registrar's Office.
On rare occasions, the work for an incomplete cannot be completed by the deadline because the extenuating circumstances that caused the student to request the grade of IN have continued to affect his or her ability to complete the outstanding work. The student can petition for an extension of the Incomplete can be submitted to our office for review. Please keep in mind that incompletes cannot be extended beyond the last day of classes in the semester which the incomplete grade is due.
