When extenuating circumstances arise, a student may request an outcome of incomplete (IN) from the course instructor. The course instructor may submit an incomplete only when the student has consistently engaged in learning activities and has successfully completed at least 50 percent of the work before the end of the term. The course instructor is not obligated to grant an incomplete.
If a student is awarded an IN outcome, the maximum incomplete period is 15 weeks after the end date of the term. The course instructor may, however, establish an earlier completion date.
It is important to note the following regarding IN outcomes:
- An incomplete period will include the break period between terms but exclude any no appointment periods.
- An IN outcome does not count as credit earned and therefore may negatively impact satisfactory academic progress. Please refer to the policy on satisfactory academic progress located elsewhere in this catalog.
- If an incomplete period expires and no outcome has been submitted, the IN will convert to a no credit (NC).
