Incomplete Grade Policy
For the Science Prerequisites for Health Professions program, effective January 2017
Students are expected to complete all course work by the appointed end date of the course. Under extenuating circumstances a student may petition the course instructor in writing, for an Incomplete (I) grade. The petition must include an expected date of course completion and any other conditions stipulated by the instructor. The I grade must be changed within the time limit imposed by the course instructor, but no more than four weeks following the end of the course. Failure to complete the work within the time period imposed by the instructor will result in the student receiving the earned grade, including zeros for any incomplete assignments/assessments.
To qualify for a grade of “Incomplete” the student must be:
- Currently on track to complete the course with a passing grade
- Able to show consistent progress within the course
- Able to show a history of communication with the faculty member regarding course progress and/or the extenuating circumstance
- Able to document an extenuating circumstance that hindered progress in the course
If a student can answer yes to all of the above, they may apply to the faculty member for a grade of Incomplete.
Students ineligible to receive an “Incomplete”
Students who have not yet begun their course, have made minimal progress in the course, are not on track to pass, have not experienced an extenuating circumstance, and/or have not been in contact with their faculty member will not be eligible for a grade of Incomplete.
If you are not eligible for an “Incomplete”
If a student is determined not eligible to receive an “Incomplete” in the course, the final course grade will be the earned grade at the end of the 16 week period, including zeros for any incomplete assignments/assessments.
