Incomplete Grade Contract

Work reported as Incomplete (I) for graduate students must be completed by the end of the sixth week of the next fall/spring semester. Work reported Incomplete in the summer session must be completed by the end of the sixth week of the next fall semester. The exact length of time to remove the Incomplete within the above guidelines is set by arrangement between the instructor and the student. If the work reported as Incomplete is not made up by the deadlines noted above, it is automatically entered as an F (Failure) on the student's record.

Some courses continue beyond the normal ending date of the semester or session. In such cases, the initial grade reported will be an RC which means Research or Course Continued. Once the extended instructional period is finished, the RC grade will be replaced with the appropriate grade by the instructor.
