- Grades of Incomplete are to designate incomplete work in a course and will be used in extenuating circumstances such as illness, military service, hardship or death in family.
- Grades of Incomplete are given when student has already completed substantial requirements in the course.
- Grades of Incomplete must be completed in one semester after they have been awarded or the grade of Incomplete will revert to a grade of F. Any extensions to the one-semester time frame must be arranged with the Associate Dean of Academic Programs prior to the Incomplete being changed to a grade of F.
- A student with two or more current grades of Incomplete will not be permitted to enroll in any new courses until the number of current incomplete grades becomes less than two.
- The course instructor, or in the absence of the instructor, the specialty coordinator, shall supervise the completion of the course work and removal of the incomplete to a course grade.
- If the incomplete is in a course that is a prerequisite for another, the student may not progress until the incomplete is removed.
- All grades of Incomplete on courses that are part of the degree requirements must be removed at least one month before the final semester of the degree.
- Student Services will run a query each semester to monitor student progression. They will notify the academic faculty advisor of failure to meet grade expectations of a 3.0 or above or of any Incompletes that have not been removed from their record. Please see [[CON Evaluation of Professional Graduate Student Progression to Graduation|Policy 5.3.11]] for progression of the student.
