A student may request of his/her instructor, through the last day of the final examination period that he or she be given an “I” (Incomplete) grade. The instructor is authorized to give an “I” if it is deemed that the failure to complete work on time occurred for reasons beyond the student’s control, or that the student is engaged in an individual research project that requires a second semester for completion.

Unless a course is designated directed study, reading or research, the deadline for completing work shall be the end of the fourth week of the next semester. If no other grade is submitted by the instructor at the end of the fourth week, the Registrar will record the default grade specified by the instructor at the time the “I” was given. When no default grade is specified by the instructor at the time the “I” is given, the final grade will become “F” unless the instructor records a different grade by the end of the fourth week of the following semester. On rare occasions, when a pro-longed illness or other clearly unavoidable circumstance prevents the student from completing his or her work, the Registrar is authorized to replace the “I” with a “W” indicating withdrawal. Students who have enrolled in directed study, reading or research courses may continue their projects to the end of the next semester with the instructor’s written approval.
