A grade of Incomplete (I) may be given only when the following criteria are met.
- The student’s failure to complete the requirements of the course was due to a bona fide cause. The instructor may require official, written documentation of the cause.
- The student completed at least two-thirds of the work of the course at a passing level.
- The instructor agrees to assist the student in completing the work. An incomplete is not granted automatically. No instructor is required to offer an incomplete grade to any student even if the student meets all of the above criteria. In many cases, the appropriate course of action may be withdrawal from the course.
- If the instructor is willing to issue an incomplete, he/she will submit an Incomplete Grade Agreement to both the division/program head and the Dean of Academic Affairs for approval. If approved, all work must be completed within six weeks of the end of the semester (traditional academic programs) and within two weeks of the beginning of the subsequent session (ABE program) in which the Incomplete was received or the grade will automatically revert to the default grade.
The default grade is determined by the percentage of points currently earned out of the total semester/session points possible.
