A grade of incomplete is given only when unusual circumstances deem it appropriate. Ordinarily, such circumstances would involve matters that are not wholly within your control, such as an illness.
If you wish to receive an incomplete grade, you must complete a "Petition for Incomplete Grade" form (available online) no later than the last day of the term in which course requirements are due. You must be making satisfactory progress in the course and you must have completed 75% of the course at the time the petition is filed.
Incompletes are awarded at the instructor's discretion. If granted, the normal deadline for completion of the work is no more than eight weeks after the last day of classes in the session or subsession in which the course is offered. The instructor may establish a due date after the normal deadline if you request it and special circumstances warrant it.
The instructor will submit an alternate grade that will automatically be recorded if you do not complete the requirements for the course by the deadline. If you complete the course requirements in the time allotted, the instructor must submit the final grade by the deadline. Extensions to the due date, which you and your instructor agree on, must be approved by the appropriate academic dean.
