Assigning Incomplete Grades
Effective fall of 2018, I/N grades that are not changed within 150 days will be counted as failing. See the Undergraduate Catalog Grades and Grades and Grading Policies. Good practice for assigning “I” grades include:
- An “I” grade should be arranged before the final exam to allow a student to complete work after the end of the term.
- The student must have a passing grade in the course (D- or better) at the time the arrangement is made.
- A written agreement should list all of the requirements along with the deadline for completion.
- The agreement should also state the grade that will be assigned if the deadline is not met.
- Add a note to your calendar to make certain that you change the “I” grade when the work is completed or the deadline passes.
A letter grade should not be changed to an “I” unless the you have made an error. This might happen if the 150 days passes and the grade becomes an “E.”
Beginning with Fall 2018, the grade submission process has been changed. The e-Learning Support team has created tutorials to walk faculty through the process.
