RESOLUTION OF INCOMPLETES
The grade of Incomplete (I) cannot be assigned to any undergraduate
in the semester in which he or she graduates. All grades of Incomplete must be resolved prior to graduation. Details of this policy are on the Registrar's website.
There are three ways to resolve an Incomplete. You may:
Complete the work, and receive a final grade.
Not complete the work. In this case you will receive a final grade based on the
work you completed by the end of the term when the Incomplete grade was assigned (the "default grade").
Not complete the work, and petition the CAP to retroactively drop the subject from your record.
Petitioning to Drop an Incomplete
If you are considering a petition to Drop an Incomplete, note that the Committee rarely approves such petitions. You have an obligation to complete
your work and receive a grade for each subject, regardless of whether
the subject fulfills a requirement or is taken again in a subsequent
term. All students are given adequate time to complete their Incompletes.
The CAP will not drop an Incomplete because you neglected it over a long period of time.
If after reading this caution you decide to submit a petition, please:
If a petition to drop an Incomplete is denied and a grade has
not been awarded, you must ask the instructor to submit
a grade for the subject. If the instructor is unavailable, contact the undergraduate
academic administrator for the subject in question. The Incomplete
will be resolved when the Registrar's Office receives a grade
for the subject.
