Incomplete Coursework A grade of incomplete ( I ) is issued because of unexpected emergencies and must be made up within one semester following the final class date of the course, as stipulated by the course instructor and with approval of the program director. Students requesting extensions due to medical or military reasons are expected to provide official documentation.

The form must be signed by the student and the course instructor and approved by the program director. The student must have completed at least 50 percent of the assignments prior to course end and prior to requesting an incomplete grade.

A grade of I cannot be given if less than 50 percent of the assignments have been completed by the official end date of the course. An incomplete grade that has not been changed by the official date in this agreement will be converted to an F by the program director and chair of the Department of Health Science.
