Incomplete Grade Agreement

Incomplete grades are given only for circumstances beyond a student’s control.  If the course is part of a sequence (e.g., 540-541, 610-612, 620-621), you cannot begin the second course until the incomplete has been completed. In all other cases, incomplete grades must be completed by the end of the following year or they will be changed to Fs. It is the student’s responsibility to request an incomplete from the course instructor and work with the instructor to get the form completed.
