2020-2021 Student Handbook

Incomplete Grades

  1. An incomplete “IP” grade may be requested by a student and given by an instructor only if a minimum of 75 percent of all semester class work, especially where laboratory work is involved, has been satisfactorily completed in the judgment of the instructor, whose decision is final. Consequently, an “IP” grade may not be assigned at mid-semester.
  2. The student must have a passing grade in the judgment of the instructor when the request is made and before approval can be given.
  3. In requesting an “IP” grade, a student automatically waives the right to request or to receive a withdrawal “W” grade or an “AU” audit grade at a later date.
  4. A student should not register again for the same course.
  5. To complete the necessary class work, the student and instructor must sign a written contract defining the work that must be completed to finish the course. Both the student and instructor will retain a copy of the signed contract.
  6. The resolution of incomplete academic work is to be negotiated with the instructor but may not exceed a time limit of the mid-semester date the following semester. At the end of this deadline, based on the judgment of the instructor whose decision is final, a change of grade will be issued by the instructor to the Registrar’s Office. Any outstanding “IP” grades will be converted to “F” grades if a grade change request is not submitted prior to the last day of student withdrawal the following semester.
  7. The same instructor who assigned the “IP” must contract with the student to affect a grade change.
  8. It is the student’s responsibility to arrange with the instructor for completion of all unfinished work, once an instructor has agreed to assign an “IP” grade at the end of the semester.
