The grade of “INC” should only be given by the instructor in consultation with the student, to be assigned only when student work has not been turned in and the instructor agrees to permit the student to complete the work at a later date. Graduate Students who receive an Incomplete (INC grade) must fulfill their academic obligation within one calendar year (or earlier campus deadline) of the end of the semester in which the grade of Incomplete is given. Incompletes unresolved in the above-mentioned time-period will become FIN in students’ records and may not be changed thereafter.
Students with more than two incomplete courses will be brought to the attention of their Executive Officer to determine whether or not they are making satisfactory progress. Students will not normally be regarded as making satisfactory progress toward their degrees if they have more than two “INC”s on their records. (Please refer to “Standards for Retention,” below, and to the section “Satisfactory Academic Progress” in this handbook.) Students should be aware that continued registration and most financial aid awards are conditional upon satisfactory progress. Students should also note that credits for which they have an “INC” as of the end of the third week of classes of a given semester are not counted toward advancement to the next level for that semester.
