Grades of incomplete
In rare cases, a student may miss a significant amount of course time at the end of the semester due to illness or injury. In that situation, it may be appropriate to allow a student to take a grade of incomplete provided the student has a passing grade in the course and has shown substantive academic engagement until the illness or injury has occurred. However, these instances are not common, and before agreeing to an incomplete with a student, you must consult with the director of undergraduate studies (DUS) and get approval. Incompletes are not to be used for students who simply haven’t turned work in, nor are they intended for students who miss a significant amount of time early in the semester.
