Incomplete and Not Recorded Grades

The mark of I is used if the student has not completed the work of the course, has good reason for delay, and has made arrangements with the instructor before the date grades for the course are due to be submitted. Ordinarily, good reason will involve matters not wholly within the control of the student, such as illness. The mark may not be used to allow a student to improve a grade by additional work over and above that ordinarily expected for the course or by repetition of work already submitted to the instructor. The mark of I should not be used without prior arrangement between instructor and student.

The student must complete the designated work and submit it to the instructor by May 1 for an I received in fall semester or January term; by December 1 for an I received in spring semester or a summer session (unless an earlier deadline has been required by the instructor).

In the absence of a final grade report on or before the deadline, the mark of I will be changed by the University Registrar to a grade of F or R. The deadline may not be extended. The instructor may change a resulting F or R by means of university grade change policies and procedures.

In an instance where a grade has not been assigned at the end of the term, a designation of Not Recorded (NR) will be assigned to the student’s academic record. The NR must be changed to a grade by May 1 for the fall semester or January term; by December 1 for the spring semester or summer session. In the absence of a final grade on or before the deadline, the mark of NR will be changed to a grade of F or R. This deadline may not be extended. The instructor may change a resulting F or R by means of university grade change policies and procedures.
