A student who receives a grade of "I" in a course
and who successfully completes his/her work in the time interval
specified by the instructor but no later than the 12th week
of the second subsequent semester of enrollment will receive
from the instructor whatever permanent grade his/her work
would have deserved if it had been completed on time. The
value of the final grade resulting from the late completion
of the course requirements shall be incorporated in future
graduation indexes. If the student fails to achieve, within
the specified time, a permanent grade to replace the incomplete
grade he/she received, then the value of an "IF"
(Incomplete Failing) grade shall be incorporated in future
graduation indexes. If the student repeats the course within
two subsequent semesters of enrollment, the original grade
of Incomplete shall not revert to a failing grade. The value
of a completion grade or an "IF" grade shall not
be included in Graduate School index computation if the original
grade of Incomplete was received while the student was enrolled
as an undergraduate.
A student who feels that she/he has received an inappropriate grade in a course may appeal the grade to the instructor, department head, or the Grade Appeals Committee of the college/school in which the contested grade was awarded. For detailed information about appealing a grade, consult "A Student's Guide to the Grade Appeal Process" (PDF).
An instructor who discovers that an erroneous grade was reported
for a student shall immediately submit to the Registrar a
statement, countersigned by the department head, of what retroactive
correction is to be made. A correction of grade should be
reported to the Registrar within 30 days after the start of
the regular semester following the session in which the erroneous
grade was reported. Any correction reported after this time
must be accompanied by the instructor’s explanation
for the delay in reporting in addition to the approval of
the department head unless the grade change is the result
of a grade appeal. When a grade correction is recorded the
appropriate semester and graduation indexes will be corrected.
