The Grade of Incomplete

A grade of “X,” initiated by the student, will be approved only when documented circumstances beyond a student’s control (such as serious illness or other emergency) have prevented the student from completing the course work. Inability to get work in on time will not constitute a reason for the grade of “X.” A student must complete an Incomplete Grade Request Form and get it approved by the instructor and appropriate college dean. The approved Incomplete Grade Request Form must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar for processing prior to the last date and time to submit final grades. A student must complete the course work within 10 weeks (or a shorter time period based on the discretion of the instructor) immediately following the end of the course session in which the “X” was given. The time limit may be extended, up to one year following the end of the course session in which the “X” was given, at the discretion of the instructor and the dean of the college responsible for the course. If a student does not complete the required course work within the prescribed time period, the “X” grade will automatically convert to an “F.”

At the graduate level, a maximum of three "X" grades or nine semester hours will be permitted. If a student should carry four or more "X" grades, the student will NOT be permitted to register for additional courses until the "X" grades are reduced to a maximum of three "X" grades or nine semester hours.
